Kobe Bryant was in a recent interview where he spoke very openly about his 2003 legal battle.
Back in 2003 Kobe faced rape charges, which was a really "dark time" for him.
He ultimately settled with his accuser and always maintained his innocence.
Even though it was one of the worst times in his life he actually believes he is now a stronger and more mature person for it.
Check out the video (above) to hear why Kobe thinks the rape case helped him mature.
