Rumors are running ramped that Stephanie Rice and Kobe Bryant are more than friends. The two have been spending a lot of time together at the Olympics which is adding fuel to the fire but is there any truth these accusations?
Despite the fact that the Australian simmer and the U.S. basketball player have been spending a lot of time together in London, Stephanie is denying that they are anything but pals. According to the Daily Mail Rice and Bryant have sat together at a cycling event the other day and then she watched him play in a game later that night. Although that doesn’t really scream fling, there are other reports that the duo have been getting cozy in Olympic Village.
Now before you get all judgmental that she is having an affair with a married man listen to what Rice has to say regarding the accusations, via this Tweet.
‘FYI yes Kobe and I are friends, but no we are not together and never have been. Can’t guys and girls be just friends..? He’s an amazing athlete and I’ve enjoyed getting to know him and many other great athletes in my Olympic journey.’
I have to say the girl has a point but given his past history with infidelity I can totally see why the rumors got started. As for Kobe he has kept quiet about as the accusations continue to surround him, which isn’t necessarily a bad idea sometimes it is better where he is concerned to keep his mouth shut.
Turns out the rumors that Rice and Bryant are involved in a romantic way are not true, according to her anyway. Here is my question though to do you think the Stephanie is telling the truth or is this a case of denial to keep a secret a secret? Let me know what you think.
