Drake’s “You wasn’t with me shooting in the gym” lyrics on the “Stay Schemin” single became the global catch phrase in 2012. The words were in direct reference to Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s divorce settlement case, where Vanessa was set to walk away with with half of his earnings, along with three of their mansions. Even though Kobe cheated, Vanessa was taunted with a new name: “Gold Digger”.

Drake did comment a while back stating the lyrics weren’t intended to hurt Vanessa:

“That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all. I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else.”

Vanessa kept quiet for most of 2012 but now the basketball wife is standing up for herself and her family. She addressed the matter on Instagram after several folks keep referencing the lyrics on her profile.

“I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. 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. [...]

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”.

Since Kobe’s public cheating incident (and before), Kobe and Vanessa have been keeping their personal life very private from the public. We have a feeling it won’t be to long before Vanessa deletes her Instagram account.


lmao @ drakes corny ass apologizing

She's in the public spotlight. Develop a thick skin and get used to the criticizing, people dragging your name through the mud, and trying to make a quick buck.

^^It's true because she really wasn't there when Kobe was shooting in the gym. I can't think of any basketball wife (on the top of my mind) that actually watches their husbands while practicing.

She should have tweeted a pic of her in the gym with Kobe retrieving his makes & misses. (before she put this dumb reaction out all late)

Vanessa carries more value on her ring finger than Drake has cumulatively. Shes handling the home front while her man does his thing. And shes had to deal with KB's infidelity. Because she chose the difficult path to keep the family intact and work things out she deserves major credit. She held every card and could have easily chose to abandon ship. Props to her.

She gets props for this, but shes still a walking PR nightmare.

But seriously, Drake is cool. I thought this was the best line of the year until he apologized for it. :laughing:

Always seemed as if he and Kobe were cool (not as cool as him and Bron). He always speaks highly of Kobe.
