Vanessa Bryant’s mom claims her daughter kicked her to the curb after the death of her son-in-law, NBA superstar Kobe Bryant.
Sofia Laine wiped away tears as she described the falling out with her grieving daughter in a clip that shows a preview of her sitdown interview with Univision reporter Dave Valadez.
Speaking in Spanish, Laine said the 38-year-old Vanessa forced her out of the home and demanded that she return the car she used.
“She told me, ‘I need you to get out of this house.’ She also told me that she wanted her car and she wants it now,” Laine said.
The family drama comes as Vanessa mourns the loss of her 41-year-old husband and their 13-year-old daughter Gianna in a helicopter crash in January in Calabasas, California.
It’s unclear what led to the supposed falling out between the mother and daughter, as Laine has previously been described as Bryant’s “rock” as she navigated the tragic loss.
“[Vanessa] is incredibly close to her mom and her mom has been her rock throughout the past few weeks,” a source told US Weekly back in February.
“Her mom is always with her and the girls [Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months] and she’s been keeping Vanessa strong and she’s the weight of her support system.”
She was seen as recently as last Thanksgiving on Kobe’s Instagram page celebrating the final holiday together as a family before the fatal crash.
The full interview is set to air 4 p.m. Monday on the show “El Gorda y La Flaca” on Univision.
