Terms were supposed to be confidential, but according to TMZ.com, Kobe Bryant and his wife paid their former maid six figures to settle her lawsuit against them out of court. As previously reported, the Los Angeles Lakers star and his wife, Vanessa, were sued by the ex-employee for wrongful discharge, invasion of privacy, emotional distress and unpaid wages.
TMZ got its hands on the confidential settlement documents, which state that Kobe paid $200,000 to the maid in exchange for her dropping the lawsuit. In turn, the Bryants agreed to abandon their countersuit. After attorney fees were factored in, she pocketed about $130,000 in the deal. Under the terms, the maid is still prohibited from trashing the Bryants in the media.
