According to TMZ, Goldin Auctions offered Pamela a $450,000 advance for the items she would provide including â€śbball swag, a 2000 All-Star Game signed ball, game and practice jerseys from his days at Lower Merion High School, a Lakers jacket and shorts, trophies, his varsity high school letters,â€ť and more. Like any â€ślovingâ€ť mother, Ms. Bryant used her nearly half-million-dollar advance to buy a new house.
In Pamela Bryantâ€™s eyes, she was well within her rights to sell Kobeâ€™s memorabilia, but he doesnâ€™t see it that way. The Lakers player is currently trying to block the auction house from obtaining and selling his items. To ensure that there are no legal issues, â€śGoldin Auctions has gone to court, naming Kobe as the defendant and asking a judge to declare Pamela the owner of the goods,â€ť reports TMZ.
Currently there is no ruling on this case.
