The 50 Craziest Sex Scandals in Sports History

8. Kobe Bryant Accused of Rape

Sports figure(s) involved: Kobe Bryant
Year: 2003

During his stay at a resort in Eagle, CO, Kobe Bryant had intercourse with a 19-year-old hotel employee. Four days later, a warrant was issued for his arrest and Bryant was charged with rape. During the trial it was revealed that the accuser wore underwear containing another man's semen to her rape exam and, because she was unwilling to testify at the trial, charges were subsequently dropped. The scandal ended up costing Kobe (quite literally) when he iced out his wife Vanessa with a $4,000,000 "apology" ring and settled out of court for an unknown amount with his accuser.
