Vanessa Bryant accuses her mother of trying to "extort windfall financial gains" from her family following the untimely death of her husband Kobe Bryant through a new lawsuit.

Sofia Laine, 68, is suing her 38-year-old daughter Vanessa for financial support, claiming she worked for free as a "long-term personal assistant and nanny" for the family, according to court documents filed Tuesday in California. Laine adds to the lawsuit that before his death on January 26 at the age of 41, Kobe "promised to take care of his mother-in-law for the rest of her life."

“Unfortunately, Kobe Bryant's promise could not be fulfilled as he has now passed away, and Vanessa Bryant has taken every possible step to revoke and undo all of Kobe Bryant’s promises to mom. Vanessa Bryant had no intention of doing this. comply with any statements, agreements and promises of the Bryants at any stage."

In one of the statements, Vanessa, who also lost her 13-year-old daughter Gianna in the same helicopter crash that killed her husband and seven other victims, claims that her mother "continues to try to find ways to extort windfall financial income from our family."

“I have supported her for almost 20 years and she has never been my personal assistant, Kobe, or nanny,” says Vanessa, who is also the mother of 17-year-old Natalia, 4-year-old Bianca and 18-month-old Capri. "I have always been a housewife, and my husband and I have constantly taken care of our daughters."

“For nearly two decades, we arranged for my mother to live in a neighboring house on full support, because she claimed that she has no money to buy her own house after the divorce,”she says in your statement. “My husband and I believed that for she better not live in our house. She looked after our girls from time to time, like most grandparents. She didn’t handle family business or expenses.”

“She was a grandmother who, at my request, was supported by me and her son-in-law,” says Vanessa. “Now she wants to get back the $ 96 an hour payment for allegedly working 12 hours a day for 18 years watching her grandchildren. In fact, she only occasionally looked after my older girls when they were very young. Until 10 years ago, our children were full-time students and athletes, and I didn't have another child until 2016. Her statements are clearly false, but I still tried repeatedly to settle my relationship with my mother."

Vanessa says that even after her mother told Univision in September that Vanessa forced her out of the family home and also forced her to return the car she drove - Vanessa says she was still financially supporting her mother.
