NBA star Kobe Bryant is in a bitter feud with his mother over ownership of memorabilia worth more than $1.5 million.  He's locked in a he-said, she-said dispute about whether he gave the items to his mother or not.  Family members are split down the middle about who is telling the truth and who is lying.
