Kobe Bryant

Judge Shuts Down Memorabilia Sale ... For Now

A judge just gave Kobe Bryant a reprieve from his mother's attempt to sell his memorabilia ... by shutting down the sale ... at least for now.

TMZ has learned a judge issued a temporary restraining order against Goldin Auctions, prohibiting them from selling Kobe's jerseys, championship rings, trophies, and lots of other stuff until a full hearing can be held next Monday. 

Kobe's mom claims her son gave her the stuff outright, but Kobe says his mom is just bitter because he wouldn't buy her an expensive house.  He also says she stole some of the stuff from his house.

I want to know what happened to the other homes & cars Kobe bought his mom? Did she sell the homes? If so, where's that money & couldn't that money have gone towards purchasing her bigger, better home?

No good mom out there would ever want to part with a son's mementos, even if she clearly owned it outright.

She was his biggest defender when he RAPED a girl in Colorado. I think he's an a$$hole, personally.

As much as I can't stand Kobe, I think he's in the right on this one. I get so sick of reading comments from people who think that every celebrity should give every person related to them a handout. Nope. That's why 80% of athletes and rappers go broke. They are accused of not using their money wisely but it's because everyone that person ever knew comes to them looking for a handout. A good son would maybe consoder buying his mom a house but a good mom would never that her son do so.

I seem to remember Kobe's parents did not attend Kobe's wedding. They did not approve of the marriage. Sooo mama Bryant not satisfied with houses Kobe has bought her, she wants another one. What mama doesn't want to acknowledge Kobe put houses in Vanessa's name so she wouldn't divorce him & take half his fortune. Mama don't care, mama wants more. Mama should not be so greedy, because if she wins this case, she won't be getting anymore in future from her cash cow... I mean Kobe.

Im glad to see the Temp injunction from judge in order to get a court date to reveal both sides of ths argument. I do not @ all blame Coby for his fight here-and if the truth is revealed to be not in favor of his parents-ooooo that is down right ignorant and scandalous on thier part as parents!
