Sofia Laine was suing her daughter over what she said was lost wages. She claimed that she was owed money for babysitting services she provided over the years for her grandchildren. She claimed in the suit that Vanessa kicked her out of the house that her late husband, Kobe Bryant allegedly bought for her. She also alleged that Kobe said he would take care of her for the rest of her life.

Vanessa said that the lawsuit was “frivolous, disgraceful and unimaginably hurtful” and dubbed it as nothing more than an “extortion attempt,” noting, “My husband never promised my mother anything, and he would be so disappointed in her behavior and lack of empathy.”


As of late March, Vanessa was seeking to get the suit dismissed. Instead, she ended up settling for an undisclosed amount, according to TMZ Sports.

The settlement means that the case is over, but the terms have not been disclosed.
