While rumors about his retirement are still floating in the air, the LA lakers superstar Kobe Bryant had to deal with another accusation where he was blamed by rapper Master P for his former teammate Lamar Odom’s condition.
The American rapper accused the Lakers veteran in a video posted by TMZ Sports that he went to visit Odom in the hospital just to publicize it without having any real concern for the comatose patient.
He called Kobe fake and phony and that he could have saved Lamar’s position in the Lakers team if he wished to. The 48-year-old rapper stated that Kobe has a good control over the Lakers management and he could have possibly brought Lamar back into the team because he desperately wanted to enter the Lakers squad again and was training hard for that, as per an earlier report by TMZ.
Master P, who believes that he was like a mentor to Odom, said “If Kobe was his friend…Kobe, like, owns the team. He could’ve got the man back on the team…that’s all he wanted.”
According to Hollywood Life, Lamar’s greatest pain was that he can never be a part of the Lakers again. The trade hurt him so bad hat he cried for days and never recovered since his move from the Lakers in 2013.
In response to the allegations, Kobe tweeted yesterday, “When We feel the need to question the support of others in moments as critical as a life hanging in the balance, then we must question the kind of culture we have created that has led US to such insensitive suspicion.”
He captioned the tweet #justpray.
Kobe has emphasized on the words “We” and “Us” in the tweet so as to convey that all of Lamar’s friends and relatives should collectively help and pray for him.
