Singing sensation Brandy is angered by the sexual assault charges levelled at American basketball ace Kobe Bryant.

The LOS ANGELES LAKERS player stands accused of assaulting a young woman whom he insists consented to their sexual liaison.

And FULL MOON singer Brandy, who accompanied the star to his high school prom, has stepped forward as one of the many celebrities to express her shock at the charges.

She says, "I'm mad about it. It's real whack... When I spent time with him at the prom, he was just so nice. He was a gentlemen...

"I mean if the girl is lying, I am mad. I don't know if she is or not. It just doesn't seem right. It doesn't seem true. It just doesn't seem like Kobe would do something like that."
