If the rumours are to be believed, there's bad blood between Vanessa Bryant, wife to Kobe, and Trina, Kenyon Martin's rapper girlfriend. Given the recent history of K-Mart's friends and family beefing with the opposition, most folks brushed the supposed spat off as much ado about nothing. With the two men going head-to-head in one of the more physical playoff series in recent memory, it's only natural that the battle lines should be drawn between their respective lady-friends.
Some are saying that there may be more to it than that, though. In a 2004 track titled "Heated", Trina makes a claim that would explain why Vanessa Bryant wants to crack open a can of bitchslap on her.
I know you wanna beat it up right quick/And I was the first bitch Kobe cheated on his wife with
It's not exactly Shakespeare (and the beat sounds like the midi backing to a twelve-year-old's MySpace page), but the message is quite clear. If it is true, then, that Kobe Bryant cheated on his wife with Trina, it's understandable that Vanessa should be irked.
So, is Trina telling the truth? If so, is this news to Vanessa? Will this stay a strictly off-court matter or could the ill will spill onto the hardwood in game three? Let us know what you think in the comment section.
Oh, and you can listen to the track in question below. Skip right to the offending lyric at 1:50 if you value your ears.
