But a dark side of Vanessa is emerging months after the tragic accident.

Sofia was also there in 2003 to help pick up the pieces when Vanessa fell apart emotionally after Kobe was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a resort employee in Colorado.

Sofia recently sat down for an in-depth interview on "El Gordo and La Flaca" to expose her daughter for who she really is.

In the interview, conducted entirely in Spanish, Sofia claims Vanessa kicked her out of the Bryant mansion and repossessed a car she had given her.

In a promo video posted on Instagram, Sofia is in tears as she explains that her daughter abandoned her and left her destitute.

The caption translated in English reads: "This Monday, @davevaladez speaks in #Exclusive with the mother of Vanessa Bryant who is in abandonment and sadness after the death of her son[-in-law]."

Joe Biden said the Black community is not as "diverse" as the Hispanic community. He didn't clarify what he meant by that remark.

Biden made the comment during an interview with the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) which aired on Wednesday.

National Public Radio's Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked Biden whether he would stop the deportation of Cubans, if elected president.

"I'm going to look at every single country in the world... this guy [President Donald Trump] is sending them back," Biden said.

Biden assured Garcia-Navarro he would attempt to restore the Obama-Biden administration's policy of improving relations with communist Cuba.

Biden then added:

"And by the way, what you all know, but most people don't know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things ... it's a very diverse community."

Biden's comment drew mixed reaction on Twitter.com, with some accusing him of being an overt racist.

Twitter user @jg091297 wrote: "He could have said 'they all look alike to me' and this would have sounded less racist."

User @KenAndTonic tweeted: "Wonder how all of his VP candidates feel about this, you know, being all the same and everything."

User @NthingInPrtculr tweeted: "I'm Black and I find what Biden said incredibly condescending, clearly he thinks he can say whatever he wants & still get our votes & I fear that he is right."

But some Black Democrats shrugged off Biden's latest gaffe: @MrNicdraw wrote: "Still better than the alternative. Like wtf."

Says he may sound different, but he puts America first
