R&B singer Brandy appeared on ESPN’s First Take on Thursday morning where she was asked about an old rumor involving her and Los Angeles Lakers star, Kobe Bryant.
Bryant took Brandy to his prom all the way back in 1996, sparking rumors at the time that they were dating.
“We were just friends,” Brandy explained during an interview on the show. “I never dated Kobe Bryant. Ever.”
Brandy maintains that nearly two decades later, she and Bryant are still friends … but nothing more than that.
Bryant met his wife Vanessa three years later and despite his infidelity, remains married to her.
