Kobe Calls Maid's Poop Claims "Outrageous"

3/25/2009 6:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant are striking back at the maid who accused Vanessa of various abuse on the job -- including an alleged incident where the maid was forced to stick her hand into a bag of dog crap.

The Bryant's lawyers, Loeb & Loeb LLP, just released the following statement on behalf of the couple:

We have learned that a former employee of the Bryants, Maria Jimenez, has filed a complaint against our clients. Ms. Jimenez's outrageous allegations of improper conduct are totally unfounded and patently false. The Bryants intend to vigorously defend against these untruthful allegations and are confident that the baseless nature of the allegations will be proven.

The Bryant's are innocent! Not! Kobe and his wife Vanessa are pitiful LOSERS!
It sounds too ridiculous to be true! So it probably is true! Yeah! Kobe says he didn't rape that poor young girl in Colorado. Then he sends her a letter of apology after she drops the charges. HE HIRED ATTORNEYS TO ATTACK! TO LIE DECEIVE AND FALSIFY STATEMENTS OF THE VICTIM TO MAKE HER LOOK LIKE A SLUT. NOW THEY HIRED AN ATTORNEY TO DO THE SAME TO THEIR MAID! I BELIEVE THE MAID!
Vanessa and Kobe are whacked! See what happens when you have money. You can do things to the little people and get away with it! Because then you can turn around and trash the maid and say she is after your money!
See how stupid and greedy Vanessa is! She stayed with Kobe knowing he cheats on her! Now who is really after the money-Vanessa is!

Look, people you guys should stop saying all these stupid things about Koby and his wife. They are not call for. They do not deserve such crezy things of such to be said about them. Leave them alone, because they don't bother anyone at all. Not because you gus are jealous and hiteful means all kind of unfounded things can be said about fine couples like them. I challange #7 and # 9 to prove all the sh....t they are talking about. If I was Kobe I'll sue the hell of you fools. If you cannot say anything good about anyone shut up and think about cleaning your big and ugly mouths. Go find a job and forget about other people millions. Get over it , you can make yourself a rich person if you work toward it.

Here we go! I'm sure the Bryants will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to ruin this poor woman's life even further than the BEOTCH Mrs. Bryant already has...this so that she go on and be a total douche to the next housekeeper they hire! People like this make me sick!

Undoubtibly Illegal, needs immediate deportation. Don't bite the hand that feeds tax free cash and doesn't suck up to the attorney who sees a big cash payout with their celebrity status. I know, I know it's all of our fault these "people" are being exploited but if she didn't like working there get another job not an attorney because the people have cash. She can buy her own medical insurance just like we do. Stop whining! Oh the message we send to ingrates.

Her story is probably grande subpoena.

El problemo no es mia and a Adios to you!

This CRAP sounds too stupid to be true. First, let's assume for argument sake that Kobe's wife did ask the maid to put her hands in pooh, why did the maid do it? That is the question the judge would ask. We all have parents who asked us "if your friends jumped off a cliffxxxx" and we all know the answer. The maid has free will, if she did it then she made a choice so it is not Vanessa's fault.. What the maid should be worried about is finding another job that pays as well, she will have a difficult time getting references, oh well tomato pickers are always needed.

Civilzed
Obviously your name is meant to be a joke because not only does your post points to the opposite, it also highlights your ignorance and lack of education. Generalization is a sign of stupidity, stop hating on your betters and go play in the street.

The allegations are unfounded and patently false, just like the rape allegations, huh? Kobe is a pig and anybody who would stay married to him is a dumbass. I just hope one of these days they both get what they deserve.

Goodness, I had no idea the Bryants have so many two-faced friends! I had no idea that so many people were in that Colorado hotel room, in the Brant home and are SUCH good friends with Vanessa! IF Vanessa is a bitch...Was she a bitch to 'you all'? Probably not. But because you heard from a friend who knows a friend who works with a person who...These are the same 'friends' who were in the Colorado hotel room too right? Amazing, so many people, such BIG glass houses.

I have had the "pleasure" of knowing the wives of a couple of local media celebrities over the years, and in these cases, at least, they were FAR more arrogant, egotistical, condescending, entitled, overbearing, obnoxious, etc. than their famous spouses.
