Now that her legal issues with her mom are over, Vanessa can really enjoy her time away.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, Urbieta informed the court she is dismissing all claims after hashing out a deal.

Urbieta filed a lawsuit in December 2020, only months after Kobe’s tragic death, claiming the NBA star promised to take care of her financially because she helped raise his kids with Vanessa.

After Kobe's death, she alleged that Vanessa had kicked her out of the home she lived in, took back the car she had been driving, and cut her off.

In court, Urbieta said she held up her end of the bargain by taking care of her grandchildren for 18 years, but claimed Vanessa never provided her with proper meal breaks or overtime.

Vanessa later disputed the allegations, and made it clear that Kobe would be disappointed in her mother's actions.

"This lawsuit is frivolous, disgraceful, and unimaginably hurtful. My husband never promised my mother anything, and he would be so disappointed in her behavior and lack of empathy," she stated. Vanessa alleged the case was nothing more than an “extortion attempt.”
