Kobe Bryant has ended his legal war with his mother ... settling the lawsuit over his basketball memorabilia.

As TMZ reported  ... Kobe went after his mother for trying to auction off jerseys, rings, trophies and scores of other items.  Pamela Bryant claimed her son gave her the stuff, but Kobe claimed she was full of it and she was just pissed because he wouldn't buy her an expensive house in Vegas.

Now Pamela and Kobe's dad agreed to issue a letter of apology to the Lakers' star, according to ESPN.  In return Kobe agreed to let Pamela sell off just under 10% of the items.

So the legal issue is now resolved.  As for family relations, we're guessing that's a whole other Oprah.

Bryant's parents released a statement that reads, "We regret our actions and statements related to the Kobe Bryant auction memorabilia. We apologize for any misunderstanding and unintended pain we have caused our son and appreciate the financial support he has provided over the years. We also apologize to Goldin Auctions for their inadvertent involvement in this matter and thank them for their assistance."

All they had to do was accept Vanessa and their life would be a sweet dream. They're so stupid.

Hell If I Know    

This POS rapist makes over 60 million dollars a fuuking year. Buy your parents a house you ungrateful azzhole. They raised you, your daddy put a b-ball in your hands at age three, coached you, spent money and time so you could be a b-baller. Without them you would be asking "Do you want fries with that".
This ****bag treats his parents like this yet that leech of a wife of his blows money like water on shoes, travel, three houses, clothes, a house for her own leech mother and anything else she can piss Kobe's money away on. Kobe better watch out. He's not going to be making 60 mil a year forever. He better put the brakes on that two bit taco he married or he'll be begging his parents to buy HIM a house.

He didn't ask to be born. He owes his parents nothing. Especially since they didn't care about his happiness and who he loved.

Who makes their parents a note of apology? Considering how much you spend on Vanessa's parents, you should be apologizing to your mom. How much was that ring you gave your wife to stay with you? Wasn't it 6 million? Spare change for you. So you let her sell 10%. WOW, generous of you. What an @$$ you are.

I still hate the way he gives, gives, gives to Vanessa and her parents and made his parents have to resort to this...although they're VERY wrong for it. I hope they patch things up because u can only ever have one mother & father. They were there and sacrificed for where he is now

I have to agree, while the mom may look greedy, the parents did bring him into the world, & take care of him etc when he was young. No telling how much money they spent on him as a child & when you consider with how much he wound up with, why begrudge his parents???

Any time you go against your parents, you're tossed. Never go against the family. End of Kobe as we know it!
