Kobe Bryant's widow, Vanessa Bryant, was awarded more than $1.5 million in her lawsuit against BodyArmor, one of the NBA legend's biggest investments, after exposing alleged statements made about herself and her late husband.

The famed Los Angeles Lakers player put $6 million into the company back in 2013, years before it was bought out by Coca-Cola for a staggering $5.6 billion deal.

Vanessa later stepped in on his behalf after the Kobe Inc. president took legal action, filing a countersuit that put Carter on blast by claiming she "violated the duty of loyalty and the non-disparagement clause in her employment contract by trash-talking Kobe and his family," per TMZ.

She alleged that Carter blatantly ignored the terms by referring to Kobe as an "a--hole," a "douche nugget," and a "d--- wad."

Vaness also claimed that Carter had disparaging terms for her, allegedly calling her the "f---ing devil," "b----" and PSYCHO," even mocking her newborn as having "botox lips."

It was claimed that Carter was allowed to travel to an NBA All-Star game and allegedly once said there were "a lot of fancy a-- Black people" on the plane.

The case went to arbitration and sided with Vanessa, another victory after she walked away with roughly $28 million in a settlement from Los Angeles County over Kobe's crash site photos.

"Today marks the successful culmination of Mrs Bryant's courageous battle to hold accountable those who engaged in this grotesque conduct," a statement shared by her lawyer read. "She fought for her husband, her daughter, and all those in the community whose deceased family were treated with similar disrespect. We hope her victory at trial and this settlement will put an end to this practice."
