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?

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.

It's a shame that the only people who get to know the REAL side of a cheating man, are the people they CHEAT WITH. Then, when the truth comes out, people look at the OTHER person cross-eyed, instead of the man accused. I believe the MAIN reason why the cheerleader didn't throw a LOUD FIT, is because they paid her to quit, and it was DEFINITELY way more than what she was making as a cheerleader... Please, I wouldn't believe anything different. Not even, if the cheerleader personally told me she wasn't paid off to keep quiet. BUT...................*shaking my head*.....it's no surprise.

Shaq needs to blame himself for cheating on his wife, not Kobe. Now I don't really like Kobe, but he is not the cause of Shaq's divorce. If Shaq was only upset that Kobe put him on front street, like a mad little brother, who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar..*wheewww* .then, that's understandable. And speaking of upset.... Shaq ALWAYS makes me upset when he TRY to rap! It's not the ART of rapping/hip hop that gets to me. It's HIS style, which is WACK and I feel so embarassed for him! LOL -
