6:20 a.m. PT – 1812th – Vanessa Bryant’s mother replies to her daughter’s testimony, saying that it is Vanessa who is lying and she has evidence

“For starters, I want to say that I don’t enjoy spreading our family complaints in public,” said Sofia Laine

“Despite filing a lawsuit, I have not made any public comments, hoping the trial will go ahead without the commercials, hurtful as it is. I didn’t and don’t want this”

She continued: “I just wanted what I worked for Vanessa, despite everything that was promised and done to me for her and the family, tried to break all ties and to revoke all commitments and agreements”

“Why would she do this to her own mother? I’m so disappointed, hurt, and injustice so much that I had no choice but to file a lawsuit”

“I’m almost 70 years old, my health is deteriorating and my own daughter isn’t doing it to me?”

Sofia claims she was the family’s nanny for nearly 20 years – noting: “[Vanessa] designed and enforced an extremely strict schedule of 24/7 care for my grandchildren. It’s just ridiculous for them to deny it would be “

Vanessa Bryant hits back on her mother, claiming Sofia Laine only filed a lawsuit against her to “blackmail our family into financial collapse” “

Laine sued Vanessa earlier this week, claiming Kobe Bryant had promised to take care of her for the rest of her life.But after Kobe died in January, Vanessa left her out in the cold

In her suit, Laine claims she worked as a nanny for Kobe and Vanessa – and was “forced” to work 24/7 with no proper meal or rest for 18 years

Laine claims she was never paid for her work despite working shifts on holidays and weekends

She also claims Vanessa ordered her to move out of the house Kobe allowed her to live in while she was alive

But Vanessa says her mother lies and says, “I’ve supported her for almost 20 years and was never my or Kobe’s personal assistant, nor was she a nanny”

“I’ve always been a mother at home and my husband and I were my daughter’s full-time carers”

“Ten years ago our children were full-time students and athletes, and I didn’t have another child until 2016”

Vanessa says her mother’s claims are “obviously wrong” – and insists that she tried repeatedly to “sort things out with my mother” free

She concludes, “This lawsuit is frivolous, shameful and incredibly hurtful. My husband never made promises to my mother and he would be so disappointed with her behavior and lack of empathy”
