Vanessa Bryant has a strong support system in fans and supporters who feel the widow is being unfairly dragged following her mother’s interview where she claimed her daughter kicked her out of her home after her husband’s death.

Bryant’s mother, Sofia Laine, went on the Spanish television show “El Gorda y La Flaca,” and gave an interview to reporter Dave Valadez, where she revealed that the two had a falling out and she was allegedly kicked out of the house and forced to give back a car Bryant gave her. Bryant then provided her own statement refuting her mother’s claims and slamming her for her negative interview and lamenting her losses while she was still mourning the unexpected deaths of her husband, Kobe Bryant, and daughter, Gianna, following a January plane crash.

“My husband and daughter passed away unexpectedly, and yet my mother had the audacity to do a television interview speaking negatively of me while shedding tears for a car and a house that were not in her name,” she said. “She has removed all her diamond jewellery, emptied the apartment I provided, and put away the furniture to make it look like she doesn’t have my support. My husband and I have supported her financially for the past 20 years, and continue to do so, in addition to her monthly alimony.”

Since then, fans have taken to Twitter in droves to defend Bryant and further slam her mother for her actions, with some simply asking people to just be kind and still support the basketball legend’s widow and commending her for her strength.

Several others continued expressing disgust over Laine’s actions, stating she was a sick woman for airing dirty laundry that didn’t need to be.

Others compared her to Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas, who is also known for giving interviews slamming his daughter since her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry.

Others used the incident to remind followers that toxic relationships-even with parents—aren't okay, and encouraged them to all be strong as well.

The backlash also came on the heels of Bryant suing the LA County Sheriff’s office over deputies at the scene taking photos of the helicopter crash wreckage, including the bodies of Kobe and Gigi and the other deceased victims, some of which were shown outside of the department.

The lawsuit seeks an unspecific amount of damages, NBC News reports.
