Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, was on the receiving end of a pretty brutal shot from Drake on “Stay Schemin’” and after keeping mum for so long, she’s now admitting that she was pretty irritated by the line. Months ago Drake publicly stated that he didn’t mean any harm with the line, but apparently he also apologized to her via text message.
For his feature on Rick Ross’ Rich Forever mixtape, Drizzy spit this line, which took on a life of it’s own for a few weeks.”Kobe ’bout to lose a hundred fifty M’s/Kobe my n—a I hate it had to be him/Bitch you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym.”
At the time, with speculation that Kobe and Vanessa were headed for divorce, Mrs. Bryant didn’t comment on the jab but turns out she was pretty pissed off. Drake must’ve heard, because she got a text message apology from him.
Vanessa Bryant’s words via Bossip:
“I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship,” she wrote. “Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life. But thanks for your concern over an immature quote.
I really wish people would stop THINK and then realize that they are being sucked into someone’s clear intention to monetize and gain attention off of our family’s heartache. This is real life. I hold down our home life so my husband can focus on his career. It’s a partnership.
Since my husband isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.”
