Someone anonymously sent an audio recording of Kobe's initial interview with Eagle County sheriff's investigators Doug Winters & Dan Loya to The Vail Daily, the transcript they published is below, & it's ugly (The newspaper said it edited the interview to remove profanity and graphic sexual descriptions).

EDIT: It looks like the transcripts I posted originally have some parts left out. ESPN's transcripts are a little more detailed, so I've added the missing pieces in orange.




Loya: "Did you have knee surgery today or ..."
Bryant: "Yes I did just today. (inaudible) Come on please."
Loya: "What they do, what they do?"
Bryant: "Um, cartilage."
Loya: "Cartilage?"


Bryant: "My bodyguards -- I got to, I got to tell them what's going on, my biggest fear is my career and ... "

Winters: "I understand ..."

Bryant: "... my image, so."

Winters: "... very, very much so and we're trying to respect that as much as we can, all right?"

Loya: "And this is how we work, Kobe. We're not, we're not here to destroy your career or your image, but we do have a serious matter at hand that we'd like to resolve and it's all going to depend on your cooperation and how you want to resolve it."

Bryant: "Well. Do I have to?"

Winters: "Well, that's up to you, I mean we'd like to find out your side of the story, we'll get into the details of it, we'll explain what's going on. Um, but that's all we want to do, Kobe."

Loya: "And that's one of the reasons, and that's one of the reasons, this is one of the reasons we're up here at this time of night."

Bryant: "Ask me what, ask me something, ask me anything."

(Loya had asked Bryant how the woman showed him a tattoo on her back.)

Bryant: "She had like a strap or whatever and she like lowered it. I told her to turn around and she lowered it and she showed me."

Winters: "OK, all right um, did anything happen in the room?"

Bryant: "Like what?"

Loya: "Uh, did you guys hug or kiss?"

Winters: "Kiss or hug?"

Bryant: "No."

Winters: "OK. Um. I'll be blunt and ask you. Did you have sexual intercourse with her?"

Bryant: "No."

Winters: "Yet there is an allegation that it was an unconsensual intercourse that occurred last night, OK. All right. Hang on, OK, hang on, I understand you have every right to be upset, OK, but you know, I'm giving you an opportunity to tell the truth if something did happen, because I'm going to tell you now, um, we're going to find out."

Bryant: "Is there any way I can settle this whatever it is, I mean ...?"

Winters: "Well, what do you mean by settle?"

Bryant: "If my wife, if my wife found out that anybody made any type of allegations against me she would be infuriated."

Winters: "You going to be ready for the season?"

Bryant: "I don't know man, I don't even know if I'll be able to play this season with this ... going on. If it becomes public I'll lose my wife ..."
Loya: "How long have you been married?"
Bryant: "... and all my endorsements."
Loya: "How long have you been married?"
Bryant: "Two years. My wife and daughter, them mean everything man, everything man, up and until now (inaudible)."



Loya: "Just be straight up, we're not going to tell your wife or anything like that. Did you have sexual intercourse with her?"

Bryant: "Uh, this is what I need to know because uh I did have sexual intercourse with her. Cause I was (inaudible)."

Winters: "And I understand."

Loya: "OK, was it consensual?"

Bryant: "It was totally consensual."

Loya: "What makes you believe, what makes you believe it was consensual?"

Bryant: "'Cause she started kissing me, (inaudible) then she bent over and (inaudible)."

Winters: "... do you think there's any possibility that at some point during this entire incident that she said no and it just happened to go on a little bit further and it just and then you quit?"

Bryant: "No. I stopped (inaudible), I stopped."

Winters: "When did she, when did you stop, what, what made you stop?"
Bryant: "Well I asked her about the ... thing and she was like no, I don't know."
Loya: "How many times did you ask her?"
Bryant: "Once."
Winters: "OK, all right, OK. You said, when, did it stop at that point?"
Bryant: "Um, did I stop? (inaudible) She went like this (inaudible), I asked her if I could ... and she was like no. Um, I thought she was cool, you know, I stopped. I stopped pumping and uh, I just, I just stood there like this (inaudible) and um, then she just moved like this."


Loya: "Is this, I don't mean to offend you in any way but is this a habit of yours, that you cheat on your wife?"

Winters: "Has this ever happened before?"

Bryant: "Um, yes, with one other person. And she could actually testify I do that um, I do the same thing, I hold her from the back, I put my hands (inaudible)."

Loya: "And who's that other person?"

Bryant: "Her name is Michelle."

Loya: "And this is somebody you frequent or one time incident or ...?"

Bryant: "No. She's a, she's a frequent (inaudible)."

Loya: "And your wife ..."

Bryant: (Inaudible)

Loya: "Obviously your wife doesn't know about this?"

Bryant:" No. Nothing man, seriously."

Bryant: "... I can't believe this girl. What does she want from me?"
Loya: "Do you want me to carry those for you, Kobe?" (Apparently referring to Bryant's crutches.)
Bryant: "Yeah. What does she want, what does she want?"
Winters: "I don't think she wants anything."
Bryant: "Are you kidding me?"
Loya: "What are you willing to give her?"
Bryant: "She has to want, she has to want something (inaudible) she has to want something."
Winters: "What do you mean she has to want something? I don't understand."
Bryant: "She has to have a, she has to have a motive, to do, she has to have a motive to do this."
Winters: "What would be, what do you think her motive is then?"
Loya: "Are you willing to pay that if she is?"
Bryant: "I got to. I got to. I'm in the worst (edited) situation."

Like I told you before, Frosty, I don't think we're going to see him shilling any more Big Macs or chugging Sprites with that Li'l Penny rip-off anytime soon.

I'm morbidly curious to see what the unedited version of this is.

My roommate's crazy friend said that her psychic told her what happened in that hotel room in Colorado. She says that the sex started out consensual, and then Kobe wanted { Sorry, you must be logged in to see this text! } , she said no, and he did it anyway. Voila-there's your rape charge.

I thought she was insane-after all, she later said that she always had a good feeling about us because my *couch* told her so-but after reading this, and Kobe's "I didn't think it was rape, but sorry if you did" pseudo-apology, that kinda makes sense.

Urh I guess that means Kobe plays on both end of the court... That certainly was one (edited) situation.

It is interesting to read him go from, Hell no I had no relationship with that woman to, well if I did, you wouldn't tell anyone.

The REAL question: Will any NBA announcer (especially Marv Albert) be able to declare that Kobe "went back door" without cracking up his analyst?

Marv: "Kobe...goes BACK DOOR...and a BEAUTY!"
Fratello: "Oh no you didn't!"
Marv: "YES!"
