Well Vanessa just filed a devastating legal document that may cause the court to throw out the case. Here's how Radar Online is reporting it:
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Vanessa’s attorney is making moves to show Kobe never promised to take care of her mom Sofia Laine for the rest of her life.
Recently, Vanessa submitted evidence she believes proves her case. A part of the record is filings from Sofia’s divorce. Back in 2008 and 2009, Sofia was fighting her ex-husband over spousal support.
At the time, her ex-husband tried to get out of paying monthly support saying Kobe was taking care of the bills. Sofia told the court Kobe had no obligation to provide to her. Her ex also questioned her about tabloid reports that Vanessa bought her a $1 million home. She said the report was “absolutely false.” Sofia said, “I would never permit Vanessa to do such a thing. I have not and do not (nor should I be required to) rely on Vanessa for my support."
Kobe's widow believes the records show her mom is not being truthful in the present case.
