Kobe Bryant Believes Rape Case Made Him Better
Maybe the saying, Experience is the Best Teacher is a true saying. Kobe Bryant feels that the rape he was accused of in 2003 in Eagle, Colorado made him better. According to TMZ, in an interview with Graham Bensinger, Bryant feels that point in his career when he was accused of rape, it helped to make him a better person;
”I think it challenges who you are as a person. To have to go through something like that not only individually but as a family. For the Lakers organization, my teammates. It was extremely difficult and you kinda had to do some soul searching, because you’re fighting numerous battles at the same time. You just kind of try to figure your way through all of this mess. And the only thing that you can do is put one foot in front of the other, and just continue to move forward.”
Bryant and the accuser settled out of court without Bryant admitting if he raped the woman or not. But something else did come out of the accusation. Kobe admitted to cheating on his wife Vanessa and made it up to her by buying a $4million ring. *Eyes Still Pop Out of Socket*. Kobe goes on to say that pressure also has something to do with it. That is good for Kobe, but didn’t he continue to cheat after the rape?
