Remember when Kobe took Brandy to the prom way back in '96? The R&B singer made an appearance on ESPNs "First Take" on Thursday, and after being asked about that event, Brandy dispelled the 16-year-old rumor that the two were intimately linked.

"We were just friends," Brandy explained. "I never dated Kobe Bryant. Ever."

Despite never being lovers, Brandy claims the two are still friends to this day.
