Kobe Bryant

I Did NOT Fight in Church

8/16/2011 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0816-kobe-bryant-BNKobe Bryant is finally responding to allegations he scrapped in church last Sunday -- and says his accuser is flat out lying.

Kobe's attorney Mark Campbell says the Los Angeles Lakers superstar is "aware of the baseless allegations asserted against him, and is prepared to defend against them fully."

Kobe attended a church in Carmel Valley, CA on Sunday ... and allegedly grabbed a cell phone from a man he thought was trying to take photos of him and his family. The man reportedly claims his wrist was injured.

Campbell identified Kobe's accuser as Thomas Hagos.

San Diego police tell TMZ they want to question Hagos about the alleged incident before they decide if they need to talk to Kobe.

Now the dude's "wrist hurts" and a lawsuit vs Kobe is pending?

The church should check this guy out -

Is he registered, does he go/contribute regularly?

Or was he just there - because word-of-mouth in that area placed Kobe/Vanessa there every Sunday.

If Kobe was on high alert - it's probably because he noticed this guy sniffing them out - choosing an "appropriate" seat, etc. -

The church might even have camera's that caught it - my church films each service.

I can't believe anyone at TMZ would actually RAG on Kobe over this - give me a break.

I heard from reliable sources that he took the camera, then slept with him and then bought his wife a diamond necklace.

Kobe proves yet AGAIN what a POS he really is. Those kids of his have to witness again and again what out of control, immature, unstable, attention seeking, classless, ghetto, narcissistic sacks of shiat both of their parents are.

Taking somebody's cell phone by FORCE is aganist the law. Charges SHOULD be filed against this A-hole. The man in church was NOT taking his picture, as he had no pictures of Kobe and his horse toothed jackazz of a wife on his phone.

I hope this man calls Gloria Allred.
