Kobe Bryant and his parents, Joe and Pamela Bryant

Kobe Bryant’s wife and kids were at the Staples Center to see his 60-point farewell game this month, but his parents Joe and Pamela Bryant were noticeably absent. And now we know why.

 The NBA legend hasn’t spoken to them in thee years – all because they tried to auction off some of his high school memorabilia behind his back.

Via ESPN:

 Kobe hasn’t spoken to his parents in nearly three years. Not since 2013, when they tried to auction off his high school memorabilia without his consent.
