Kobe Bryant's Wife Suffered Miscarriage During Rape Case

By    |   Wednesday, 04 Mar 2015 06:27 AM

The wife of Kobe Bryant suffered a miscarriage during his 2003 rape case in Colorado and the NBA star blames himself for all the stress she faced, according to a new Showtime documentary.

Bryant's personal revelation is the showstopper of "Kobe Bryant's Muse" for which he was the executive producer, according to the Los Angeles Times

The rape allegation was eventually settled in a civil lawsuit for an undisclosed agreement between Bryant and the accuser in 2005, according to USA Today.

"Directed by Gotham Chopra, the 83-minute film contains a wealth of rarely seen footage that reaches back to Bryant's early childhood in Italy," wrote the Time's Greg Braxton. "By turns charming, cocky, remorseful and emotional, the celebrated and divisive superstar probes his past in the film with an openness and candor rarely seen during his 18-year pro basketball career."

Bryant's comments about Vanessa Bryant's miscarriage were added to the documentary after it was seen by some critics because the future basketball Hall of Famer wanted to make it "more personal," noted the Times.

"There are entire areas of his life that were left on the cutting-room floor," Chopra told the Times. "But he was very adamant about this. What we lost, we gained in emotion. Kobe is a perfectionist."

Bryant never mentions the case directly in the segment titled "2004," the date of the hearing where he was accused of a rape in a Colorado hotel room, according to TMZ, but was clearly references the situation. The accuser would later drop charges before the trial started.

"We were expecting ... and um ... expecting our second child during that time ... and there was just so much stress, she actually, she actually miscarried," Bryant says in the documentary. "It's something I have a real hard time dealing with that 'cause I felt like it was just my fault. … The reality is it happened because of me. That's something I have to deal with. Something I gotta carry forever."
