In “I know you don’t care, but I thought you might like to know” news, Sanaa Lathan responded to rumors of her flirting and getting frisky with Kobe Bryant at the Watch The Throne concert.
Reports New York Daily News:
According to our source, Lathan, 40, who’s the voice of Donna Tubbs on “The Cleveland Show,” came to the concert with a girlfriend, and Bryant, 33, who was with teammate Matt Barnes and a bodyguard, were initially seated on adjacent couches in the club-like friends-and-family VIP area behind center stage. Kim Kardashian , Beyoncé and Jake Gyllenhaal were among the other celebs in attendance.
Eventually, Lathan and Bryant ended up standing next to each other, and that’s when our source said the actress, who was drinking champagne, became progressively more flirtatious with the NBA star, who stuck to soft drinks, presumably because he’s in training. Lathan, attired in a sexy white-chiffon dress over what appeared to be a black bra, was “whispering in his ear” and at one point stroked the ballplayer’s face. “It seemed like a pretty intimate gesture,” says the source.
At one point she left her seat and when she came back, she made sure she was standing next to Kobe again,” says the source She also danced to Jay-Z and West’s performance in front of Bryant.
“She was throwing her head everywhere. Her hair was like slapping him in the face,” laughs the source, who adds that at one point, one of the straps of Lathan’s dressed slipped enticingly off her shoulder. When West performed “All of the Lights,” Bryant and Lathan danced together.
Sitrick denies this however, saying, “There was no touching of the face, and he did not dance with her.”
Despite Lathan’s attentions, the source noted that Bryant seemed “moody” and “down,” and the two seemed to go their separate ways. Bryant’s glum disposition may have had to do with his wife, Vanessa Bryant ’s, decision to initiate divorce proceedings after 10½ years of marriage. The case was filed in Orange County Superior Court on Friday.
And now..Sanaa responds:
I see said the blind man. And now…
I believe her because she’s not his type. She’s black.
