Kobe Bryant was no rapist :

Kobe Bryant, star athlete, adored husband, beloved superdad, was no rapist. That should be the end of it. Nothing to see here. Sadly, in this #MeToo era, it isn’t.

So many people who don’t know what they’re talking about have been mewling lately about the “tarnished legacy’’ of the NBA superstar, who died tragically in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven other people on Jan. 26.

You should all known what happened in this ugly chapter

he intimate details to emerge in the preliminary hearing was this: Once the pair were having sex — over the back of a chair — the victim felt pain and asked Bryant to stop. And he did.

I don’t know what happened to make the young woman suddenly feel like a victim. Or why, after the case was prepared, she abruptly ended her cooperation with the prosecution. The criminal case against Kobe Bryant was dropped.

He then publicly apologized to the accuser. Not for a rape, but for a misunderstanding.

He concluded with, “Although I truly believe this encounter was consensual, I recognize now that she did not and does not view this incident the same way I did. . . . I now understand she feels that she did not consent to this encounter.”

The hoops star’s apology amounted to a classy way to end this mess. That, and the undisclosed sum he paid the woman to prevent a civil suit.

As I see it, this matter was between Bryant and his wife. And she forgave him (reportedly after he presented her with a large diamond).

They remained married and had three more daughters, including basketball-loving Gianna — Gigi — who died with her dad. I would hope we could put this sordid chapter behind us, and remember Kobe Bryant as the good, loyal man he was.
