Kobe Bryant SUES

Kobe Bryant has fired off a lawsuit of his own over more than a million bucks worth of memorabilia ... claiming his own mother stole some of the stuff right from his home.

TMZ previously reported ... Kobe's mom, Pamela Bryant, has given an auction house 100 items from Kobe's basketball career from grade school on -- including jerseys, championship rings and trophies and lots of other stuff.

Pamela told the auction house the stuff was hers and got a $450,000 advance.  Kobe told the auction house the stuff was his, so the auction house sued Kobe and asked a judge to rule they had the right to sell the memorabilia.

Now Kobe has countersued the auction house, claiming Pamela stole some of the items from his home and refuses to return many other items that Kobe left at her house when he grew up and left.

TMZ broke the story ... Kobe has given Pamela millions of dollars as well as homes and cars, but the two began feuding after he offered to buy her a house in Vegas but she wanted a more expensive one and he refused.

Kobe is asking a judge to shut down the auction and order the return of the items to him.

Kobe having some money issues with mommy? This guy has already bought his way out of a rape charge. Would you expect his mother to be different?

Only a gold digging mom would do that. i'd never imaging selling my kid's stuff, unless its a toddler's stuff at a yard sale or the child knows it.

What she's doing is plain wrong.

On a scale that is much smaller than Kobe - my mother did the same thing to me and denied it.

It's called MENOPAUSE - and the nuns never 'splained it to us when we were in school.

It is sad to see that a son and mother are at odds because of money. Especially when he has given her so much.

I don't think TMZ is reporting the entire story. Sad that children would have to sue their parents. Hopefully they can sit down and repair their broken relationship. You only have one mother and money isn't worth losing a child over.

The main ones that screw u over is family, especially when u have money they keep asking they take advantage of it, it seems Kobe is wrong but I understand where he's coming from, u help out ur family to the fullest and they never appreciate u they want more. So I hope Kobe gets everything that belongs to him!

This is a very pathetic and sad situation! I am hoping that Kobe can reconcile with his mother. You only get one mother in life cherisher her while she's here on earth. They're are a lot of people out here without mothers wishing that they had their mothers! God bless them! :)

Money...the root of all evil, and probably one of the top reasons behind broken families.
