Kobe Bryant - Bodybuilder Offered To Kill His 2003 Rape Accuser For $3 Million, According To FBI Doc
A Swiss Body Builder Reportedly Offered To Kill Kobe Bryant's Rape Accuser For $3 Million
In newly released FBI documents, a Swiss bodybuilder reportedly wanted $3 million dollars to kill Kobe Bryant's rape accuser.
In 2003, a woman accused Kobe Bryant of raping her in his hotel room at The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera in Edwards, Colorado.
The former Laker's champ, who passed away in 2020 in a helicopter crash, claimed the sex was consensual and after the accuser refused to testify, a settlement was later reached in a civil suit.
According to the report, Graber, who allegedly had ties to the Russian mafia, reportedly offered his services as a 'murder-for-hire plot in a letter to Bryant. The alleged letter speculated that Graber could influence the alleged victim or 'make his problem go away for a fee.'
When the case went public, the Swiss bodybuilder, whose name is Patrick Graber, pleaded no contest to grand theft in 2004 after several charges were brought against him including solicitation to commit murder.
After receiving the letter, Kobe Bryant's security reportedly contacted the authorities and Patrick Graber was arrested by the FBI and ultimately spent three years in prison.
Bryant left behind his wife, Vanessa Bryant, and their three daughters, Natalia Bryant, 18, Brianka Bryant, 4, and Capri Bryant, 2.
In March 2021, his daughter Natalie shared that she had been accepted into the University of Southern California. In an Instagram post, Vanessa said,
"Tears of joy. I'm SO happy for you Nani!"
