Kobe 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.
