Kobe Bryant spotted with Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice [photos]

I guess this is the week for Olympic teammates to put each other on blast. First USA track teammates Dawn Harper and  Kellie Wells expressed displeasure at the media coverage Lolo Jones received, now an Autrailian women’s basketball  Kobe Bryant was photographed sitting with Australian cyclist Stephanie Rice during an Olympic event. It’s alleged that the two have had a friendship of some sort that started during the 2008 Olympic games. What happens anytime Kobe is spotted with a woman? Speculation.

Well this time, fellow Australian Elizabeth Cambage, who is also a member of the WNBA Tulsa Shock, took to Twitter to share her thoughts about the “friendship”:

“I love how Kobe has his wife with him at the Olympics, yet still surrounded by groupies,”

“Some women need to get a grip ASAP!”

Stephanie was at Team USA’s game when they faced off against the Aussies.

Yikes! Should we expect to see Vanessa shopping or at an event stone faced?
