Kobe's Beef

Over "Dirty" Affair Allegations

5/26/2008 2:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a cease and desist letter that Kobe Bryant's attorney fired off to the owners of a website that accused the NBA star of having an affair with a Lakers cheerleader. Is it too late to bet on the Spurs?

0526_kobe_launch_ex01-1
TheDirty.com (aka the site that ran those Matt Leinart pics) published a post last week claiming it had info linking Bryant to one of the Laker Girls, who has since resigned. The girl has left the team, we're told, to pursue a "hosting" career. All references to her on the team's official site have vanished.

The letter demands the site remove Kobe's "name, image, and likeness, and any information that relates in any way to him" -- but thus far, it's still there. TheDirty tells us, "TheDirty.com strictly adheres to all laws when posting stories and/or images."

BTW -- Kobe's lawyer is none other than Adam Streisand. He's Barbra's cousin, and he tried -- and failed -- to inject himself into Britney Spears' conservatorship case earlier this year.

The girl in Colorado wasn't raped. She was a mental case whose vage is a bus stop.

What did she expect when she went up to the room, praying the Rosary maybe???

Crazy cokk tease who got what she wanted and then she cried wolf.

Now, do I believe Kobe cheats whenever he has the chance? Hell yes.
He's young, with a high testosterone level.

But his wife is very beautiful and I hope he stays married and grows up.

Kobe's Ghost    

Kobe, was and is a pig! Great basketball player but a human piece of slim. If you ever read the letter he wrote to the girl in Colorado on the civil suit he all but admits he raped her. Did any of that change my opinion of him. Hell know I had zero respect for him before. But somehow I don't think that is gong to upset his day....

So he is banging a LA Cheerleader... like its the first one... I hardly think so...

Why is it that so many people are out to get Kobe Bryant? Is it because of his status as a star basketball playe or is it racial?

I think that these papers are the result ofrr a teenage prank!!!!

As far as this 18-year-old leaving as a Laker girl, I do not think it has anything to do with Bryant. She is possibly going to college , hosting,. IT HAS NOTHING to do with Bryant! She probably just wants to do something else with her life which includes a career. What's wrong with that?

#9, Kobe was a rat for cheating on his wife but a rapist? I don't think so.

And to all of those that insist that Kobe raped that girl in Colorado need to remember something, she had had sex with at least 3 different men besides Kobe prior to him!

Kobe may be a cheater and such but there is no concrete evidence that he raped anyone. Most likely he didn't.

pls, i don't believe it not just b/c i am a kobe fan. you have to be able to provide proof. this site usually has pix except in this case. also, the rape case was dropped b/c the girl changed her story 3 times. btw, some people who believe in conspiracies think it is a plot to distract kobe. how come it comes out during playoffs.

also i just have to say no one gets as much play as athletes and rock stars. no one. not actors. i was watching a show and laker girl fans were writing kobe a message on his board. they all asked to marry him or hook up and even gave their e-mail addresses. in europe it is known that soccer players are cheaters. their wives or girlfriends don't care. i mean they cheat on them and they don't even try to cover it up/

what i am saying is kobe wasn't convicted of rape. he is a cheater but so are a lot of people. i don't believe this story. a lot of ppl will do anything to get in spotlight,.

27. NO Laker Girl would leave her position to become a hostess!
Being a LAKER GIRL in LA is HUGE!

More than likely she was ASKED to leave and didn't have a choice.
