Kobe Bryant -- My Former Maid Plays Dirty

8/21/2009 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant --Kobe Bryant and his wife have filed legal papers, claiming they have the poop on the lawsuit their former housekeeper filed against them.

The housekeeper, Maria Jimenez, claims Kobe's wife Vanessa was incredibly abusive and disrespectful -- screaming and swearing at her, even forcing her to put her hand in a bag of dog feces to retrieve a tag from her blouse.

In Kobe's docs, he and Vanessa say they paid the maid $50,000 a year, gave her time off, lavished her with gifts, yada yada.

The Bryants say the maid ate meals with them and when she asked for time off to visit her family in Peru, Vanessa gave her a paid leave of absence.

Kobe's response to the lawsuit claims all the allegations the maid is making are false, that she wasn't wrongfully fired, and the notion that her privacy was violated because of home security cameras is ridiculous -- the maid knew cameras were rolling.

I'm scared that years from now, the whites will be the maids. A scary story is that long time ago there was people with white skin just like the lawn mower in our backyard kids. That is true to any racist black or white. IS IT RACE OR A SPECIES THAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Kobe, I'm sorry. I am just jealous of your wife Vanessa. She does NOTHING...all she ever did was marry a successful man like yourself. I'm doing thins out of jealousy and greediness. Forgive me.


Can I have more money? I need a new car.

Finally Kobe is on TMZ [though this story is really about his wife and former maid). I was hoping that the NBA and fans will forget that I got dunked on by a 20 year old.

PS: Winless!!!

Why is Kobe Bryant fighting with his Maid, I thought he loved women that worked in the Hotel Industry. Maybe he should not ask the maid about how long she wore her panties, and if the maid wore her panties while being engaged with other soul brothers. Part II.
