DL: We're not, we're not here to destroy your career or your image but we do have a serious matter at hand that we'd like to resolve and it's all gonna depend on your cooperation and how you want to resolve it.

KB: Ask me what, ask me something, ask me anything.

DL: Were you with a female party last night?

KB: Um, I was with a lady who showed me around yes. Did she say I did something to her? She showed me around the pool, we went to my room, she showed me the back view where the bears come up to the window, and that's about . . . it, we shot the (expletive deleted) and that was it.

DL: What did you guys talk about?

KB: Just shot the (expletive deleted). She asked me what I was here for, I told her my knee. She wanted to be a singer. Um, she had like, um her tattoo, with like music and instruments on it.

DW: Did you ask her to come back to your room last night when she checked you guys in?

KB: Come back to my room, yeah. That's when she showed me the tattoo.

DL: OK. Where was her tattoo on her?

KB: Um, she had one on her ankle and she said she had one on her back and said it had notes.

DL: Did you see the one on her back?

KB: Um, yes she showed me.

DL: How did she show you?

KB: She had like a strap or whatever and she like lowered it. I told her to turn around and she lowered it and she showed me.

DL: Uh, did you guys hug or kiss?

KB: No.

DW: Okay. Um. I'll be blunt and ask you. Did you have sexual intercourse with her?

KB: No.

DW: Okay. Um, yet there is an allegation that it was an unconsensual (sic) intercourse that occurred last night, okay. All right. Hang on, okay, hang on, I understand you have every right to be upset, okay, but you know, I'm giving you an opportunity to tell the truth if something did happen. She, she submitted to, she submitted to an exam. Okay.

KB: Is there any way I can settle this whatever it is, I mean ... ?

DW: Well, what do you mean by settle?

KB: If my wife, if my wife found out that anybody made any type of allegations against me she would be infuriated. That's all I care about.

DW: Mr. Bryant, and I understand your concerns and frustrations okay, but I need to find out if this actually happened. I mean, it could have been a complete come-on. I mean she could have been leading things on or whatever.

DL: She consented to an exam.

KB: Okay.

DL: We received blood, pubic hair . . .

KB: Okay.

DL: Semen.

KB: Okay, okay.

DW: We've got physical evidence.

KB: Okay.

DL: So, be straight up with me Kobe. Is there any reason why any of your pubic hair ...?

KB: Well, I'm gonna tell you um, fellas ...

DL: Just be straight up, we're not gonna tell your wife or anything like that. Did you have sexual intercourse with her?

KB: Uh, this is what I need to know because uh I did have sexual intercourse with her. Cause I was (inaudible).

DL: Okay, was it consensual?

KB: It was totally consensual.

DL: What makes you believe it was consensual?

KB: Cause she started kissing me (inaudible) then she bent over and (inaudible).

DW: All right. Tell me how it all came about.

DL: From the get-go.

KB: Um, we walked around, went to the room, started talking, she showed me the bedroom by the back (inaudible). I said actually I'd like to go swimming in the pool, I said I ain't going by myself out there, you're . . crazy. She said well I have the key, I have to open it up if you want or whatever, I asked if she had any tattoos and she said yeah I have one on my back. And I said um, well can I see it, she's like well I might have to show my (anatomical detail deleted) if I show it to you but she's like well maybe I'll do that anyway and I'm like okay, and she gets up to leave or whatever and she gives me a kiss so I kiss her back and then you know I started caressing her or whatever and then she puts her hand on my you know my thing or whatever and it kinda goes from there.

DW: Um, it's possible that at some point that she may have told you no, I don't want to do this. Maybe she did lead you on a little bit and she kissed you and then she said now, I don't want to do this, I don't want this to happen?

KB: (Inaudible) if she said that, I stopped, nope. No semen, no nothing.

DW: Did you finish?

KB: No.

DL: Well there's always pre-ejaculation are you aware of that?

KB: Are you kidding me?

DL: I'm not kidding you, they teach you that in seventh grade sex ed.

KB: We stopped cold.

DW: How long did it go for?

KB: (Inaudible) five minutes maybe.

DL: During that time did she scream no stop I don't wanna do it? The best thing is to be straight up Kobe. Did you ever have her from the back of her head or her neck? What kind of intercourse was it?

KB: Held her from the back? Yeah, yeah, yeah. I held her from the back and I went like this.

DL: So what did you have around her neck?

KB: I had my right hand like this and my other hand like that.

DL: How hard were you holding her?

KB: I don't know. My hands are strong.

DW: Where was she bent over at?

KB: There's um, a little chair, like a cushion where you sit down, and she had her leg up, she bent herself over like this.

DL: Okay. Did she, did you get any blood on you or anything like that?

KB: She didn't bleed, did she?

DL: Yeah, she had, she had a lot of bleeding.

KB: You've got to be kidding, from where?

DL: From her vaginal area.

KB: There's no blood on me whatsoever man, matter of fact, I still have the boxers (inaudible) boxers, they're all white, there's nothing on them. . . .

DW: Is it okay if we take those, I means it's just gon- na . . . ?

KB: I do not want it to get to the media.

DW: We don't either.

DL: That's why we're here at this time of night.

DW: And we're doing everything we can to try to avoid this going out publicly. We're working on that okay. I, I don't know the answer to that right now okay, I can't promise you anything. I wish I could but I can't. Unfortunately it doesn't work that way in our line of work, okay?

DL: Hey Kobe, have you ever had any of these allegations made against you before?

KB: No. Are you kidding me? Never, I like, I treat everybody with the utmost respect, absolutely nothing.

DW: I mean is it possible that at some point she could have told you no and you didn't quite hear her?

KB: No, absolutely not.

DL: Did you ever ask her if you wanted, if you could (sexual detail deleted)

KB: Yes. That's when she said no.

DL: So you like to (sexual detail deleted)?

KB: That's my thing, not always, I mean, so I stopped. Jesus Christ man.

DW: So how was this consensual?

KB: How was it not, I mean she, we . . .

DW: You mutually kissed there's no question about that.

KB: We mutually kissed.

DW: Did you start . . .?

KB: She bent herself over . . .

DW: Okay, let me back up to the kissing. Did anything escalate at that point, foreplay type issues, you know what I'm grabbing?

KB: Yeah, yeah, sure, sure, sure, sure. She put her hand on my penis and that's it, and then she started playing with that (inaudible).

DW: Okay. Okay. Um, did she give you oral sex or anything like that?

KB: Yes, she did. For like five seconds. I said um, give me a (sexual detail deleted) um, and then (inaudible) kiss it (inaudible) she gave me a (sexual detail deleted).

DL: So the (sexual detail deleted) lasted about five seconds.

KB: Yeah it was quick.

DL: Then what happened?

KB: She kept on doing, I just told her to get up (inaudible) she didn't know what she was doing.

DL: Did you perform oral sex on her or anything like that?

KB: I didn't do that.

DL: So you didn't use any kind of protection?

KB: Didn't have any. I know you guys are looking at me sketch (inaudible).

DW: Well, we're just trying to sort out all the facts. Okay. What I'd like to do is get out of here, I don't want people starting to call people, start calling people and go (inaudible)...

KB: Whatever I need to do without making this thing public, I will do man. I don't care what it is man. I will do it.

DL: Well, if it becomes pubic it's gonna be issues for you. There's only so much we can do to prevent that.

DW: What kind of surgery did you have?

KB: Arthoscopic.

DW: You gonna be ready for the season?

KB: I don't know man, I don't even know if I'll be able to play this season with this . . . going on. If it becomes public I'll lose my wife and all my endorsements.

DL: How long have you been married?

KB: Two years. My wife and daughter, they mean everything man, up and until now (inaudible).

DL: Well, did you think about that before what you were doing though? It's a chance you take when you play.

KB: It was consensual, there was nothing weird you know what I mean.

DW: Did she say anything to do to provoke any of this to happen?

KB: She said she wanted to, you know, she hoped that I would (sexual detail deleted) her. I can't believe this girl. What does she want from me?

DW: I don't think she wants anything.

KB: Are you kidding me? She has to want something. She has to have a motive, to do this.

DL: Are you willing to pay that if she is?

KB: I got to. I got to. I'm in the worst . . . situation.

DL: Why don't you have a seat Kob.

KB: These are my boxers, these are them.

DL: That you wore yesterday?

KB: That's the chair she bent over. (Inaudible).

DW: Obviously if this turns out to be a false allegation she's obviously gonna be dealt with accordingly. Um, but, we do have an allegation right now and I understand that you claim that this was consensual.

DW: When did she, when did you stop, what, what made you stop?

KB: Well I asked her about the (sexual detail deleted) thing and she was like no.

DL: How many times did you ask her?

KB: Once. I stopped. I stopped pumping.

DL: And where did she go?

KB: Nothing. She was like um, can I have a couple autographs . . . The pen and the paper she handed to me are still here.

DW: Um, what, why do you think she would make an allegation like that?

KB: I have no idea. She must want money or something. It has to be that, because I'm telling you man, I swear on my life, I did not sexually assault her in no kind of way whatsoever man.

DW: Would you be willing to take a polygraph examination?

KB: Oh, yeah, I'd do it. I've never done one before. I gotta go to court to do that?

DL: No.

DW: What do you think the results of the, of those tests are gonna be?

KB: I don't know. I've never taken one. I'm nervous right now my hands are shaking.

DW: I'm having problems. I don't know if you're telling me the truth or not. I'm gonna be flat out honest with you. One, you lied to us right off the bat. Okay. Two, then we confront this issue and you seemed a little bit skeptical in the details of exactly what happened. I'm not saying you're a person that would do something like this okay. I completely agree it was consensual up to the point of the hugging and kissing. What I'm skeptical on is that I don't know how consensual the sexual intercourse was. I look at it this way, she's an attractive young lady okay.

KB: She wasn't that attractive.

DW: You know, well, she's okay, okay. Um, she's young, you know, she's excited to see you. And you're right, you both got caught up in the moment, um, then things started happening with her, she started thinking, no, I don't want to do this, but then again you know, being the person you are, you are a respectable person. I have the utmost respect for you. But being caught up in the moment. I think you tried, you know, just wanted to finish okay.

KB: I didn't finish a (expletive deleted) thing.

DL: Mr. Bryant by no means do we think you're a sexual predator.

KB: I did not do this. I (inaudible) at all.

DL: But we do have evidence already where there's some vaginal tearing where it's consistent more that it was . . .

KB: (Inaudible). You've got to be kidding.

DL: But it's consistent with more than five minutes of sexual intercourse. Okay.

KB: Well, that's all there was.

DL: Even though you're pretty big, you said it was easy to penetrate her.

KB: Yes, there was no resistance. None. She bent over and . . .

DL: What did you think was gonna happen after you had sex with her?

KB: What do you mean?

DL: Well she's 19 years old. She had, she just had sexual intercourse with an NBA player. What did you think she was gonna do?

KB: I never had sex with her before. I don't know man, I don't know. I have no guarantees.

DL: Is this, I don't mean to offend you in any way, but is this a habit of yours, that you cheat on your wife?

KB: Um, yes, with one other person. And she could actually testify I do that um, I do the same thing, I hold her from the back, I put my hands (inaudible).

DL: Obviously your wife doesn't know about this?

KB: No. Nothing man, seriously. (Inaudible).

DL: Did you pull her panties down or did she pull them down?

KB: I pulled them down. Cause she lifted up her skirt so I could grab her butt . . . I was just doing regular things, all of a sudden man she lifted up her skirt. (Inaudible) and then from behind and then you know she grabbed (inaudible).

DL: With her vagina?

KB: Yes. And she (inaudible) from behind my butt.

DW: Your penis?

KB: Yes.

DL: So she went into your pants?

DW: How did she do that if you're from behind?

KB: No, that's when she started having sex with me, we stood up right here and started having the you know, the foreplay happened right here.

DW: Um, so what you're saying is, that this, this is all a mistake this is all consensual.

DL: And you don't have any reason, and you don't have any idea why she would make some kind . . . cause this is a real serious allegation.

KB: I know it is, but what do you want me to do, I can't, there's nothing I can do.

DL: You have a 5-month-old daughter?

KB: Yeah.

DL: Imagine your daughter being 19 and she comes home and tells you this, how would you react?

KB: I know, I'd be very pissed. I mean, I would listen to her side but I would (inaudible) if she'd do anything like that.

DW: How do you know that it was mutual to have sex?

KB: We just started kissing I asked her I said you know, (inaudible) she bent over, and she walked over on her own free will. We're kissing and she, she put her foot up here all by herself if that wasn't consensual . . .We kissed goodbye, we kissed goodbye.

DW: Well how long after it stopped before she left?

KB: Like three minutes. We kissed right here. Then I walked her to the door. No crying, no nothing.

DW: I don't understand why (inaudible). Her family's fairly well off why would she (inaudible).

DW: I'm gonna be straight up honest with you Kobe, I don't know if the information is gonna get out okay, if the press calls me at this point in the investigation, I'm gonna explain to that this is an ongoing investigation, that we're looking into the matter and that's all I can explain. I can't promise you that it's not gonna get out.

DL: She has a bruise on her neck.

KB: You know me and (name of other Kobe Bryant sex partner omitted), that's what we, we do the same thing.

DW: That's your thing.

DW: Well you're an adult, you're a man, you know the noble thing you need to do. I can't tell you whether you need to call your wife or not but that's a decision you're gonna have to make. Um, Murphy's Law states that whatever can go wrong will . . . so whether you tell your wife that's up to you but I have no intentions of telling your wife. Now there may come a time where I, being the detective on the case, may need to talk to you. I mean who's to say that your wife won't answer the phone.

DL: If you avoid us Kobe, that's really gonna hit the public.

KB: Why the (expletive deleted) would I avoid you for? Call me. I don't care. Call me.

DW: Well Kobe, I don't think you're gonna avoid us, you've been real cooperative with us. I guess at this time do you have any questions for us?

KB: Yeah, what is going to happen next?

DW: Would you be willing to consent to a male sexual examination kit, okay (inaudible).

KB: I don't believe this man.

DW: I'm gonna be up front with you right now. I have a court order so it doesn't matter whether you consent or not
