Kobe Bryant's Dad Sued -- Sparks Are Flying

1/17/2010 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jellybean Bryant, Kobe BryantThe time Kobe Bryant's father spent in the WNBA is proving to be more costly than he thought -- he's accused of stiffing the lawyers who repped him when he got fired from coaching the L.A. Sparks.

TMZ obtained a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court -- in which the Russ August & Kabat law firm claim Joe "Jellybean" Bryant never forked over the $76,520.78 he owes for the work the firm did during Jellybean's "dispute with the Los Angeles Sparks" back in 2007.

The law firm is suing for the cash -- plus interest.

Meanwhile, Jellybean's kid makes roughly $259,000 per game -- probably enough to spare a loan.

Q    

Jellybean?..you the one taught your boy how to treat a woman? Jerk, and they got you coaching women? I heard he's been f-ed up ever since you took him to Italy, and like Tiger, robbed him of a childhood so he could, (like Tiger again) focus only on basketball.

This seems like an attempt to get the funds the dad can't pay from the child that could pay off debt after one game. JMO

#12, the REAL question is WHY would KB even put his HANDS on a skank-ass White trash btch like this. Luckily, he didn't contract anything from this disease - ridden tramp.

Where is obama when we need him. obama should be going after more of Kobe's cash. He is far too rich and obama should clip him of much of that cash.
Besides, look what happened to Tiger when he had too much cash.

Come on obama do your job, grab that cash and give it to the poor. Thats me!

You said Kobe could give his dad a loan -- Kobe is not going to give his money to anyone black, not even a parent. He's going to make sure his money does not circulate in the black race.
