Kobe's Maid SLAPPs Back -- I CAN Talk!

6/6/2009 3:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe BryantKobe Bryant's maid wants to make one thing clear: It's her lawsuit and she can talk about the details if she wants to.

Maria Jimenez just filed papers in Orange County Superior Court, citing California's anti-SLAPP statute which says Maria has the right to run her mouth, despite a confidentiality agreement she signed with the Bryants back when she first took the job.

The Bryants filed papers last month saying the opposite -- that Maria could sue but couldn't blab to the press.

Maria is suing the Bryants because she claims Kobe's wife was abusive -- including a nasty incident involving dog poop.
