Drake’s line “Bitch you wasn’t with me shootin’ in the gym” was the infamous shot thrown at Vanessa Bryant after her filing for divorce from superstar Laker Kobe Bryant. Following reports that Vanessa would be entitled to half of Kobe’s riches, the Young Money rapper introduced the notion that she had not earned it on Rick Ross’ “Stay Schemin’.”
Now, Vanessa Bryant has finally responded to Drake’s line after an attack on Instagram.
"I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship," she wrote. "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."
She then went on to explain that Drake does not have a personal relationship with Kobe, and that an apology had been extended to her from his team.
"Since my husband is 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."
In early 2012, Drake denied that the line was intended to offend Vanessa Bryant.
"I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else," he said. "That line had everything to do with me and what goes on in my head as a 25 year old man with this much income flowing in. Kobe is and always will be a friend and an icon to me."
