Police department in Kobe Bryant photo scandal allegedly has disturbing history of misconduct

Kobe Bryant’s former Irvine, California, home is back on the market for $2.6 million — less than six months after it first sold. 

And the home has definitely received a makeover. 

The three-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom abode was first purchased by the late Lakers legend and his wife, Vanessa Bryant, in 2013 for $1.3 million. 

Nine months following the five-time NBA champion’s untimely death, Vanessa listed the home for $1.995 million on Oct. 27, 2020. Only two days later, someone scooped up the home for $2 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

But the new owner evidently had considerable plans in mind for the property. 

The listing describes the property as having been a “completely remodeled single-story gem.”

The home spans 2,400 square-feet.
