Kobe Bryant's Wife, Vanessa Bryant, Makes A Change To Her Instagram Page After Sharing This Photo And Personal Message
Vanessa Bryant has addressed the unexpected death of her husband and their 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant, for the first time since the tragedy, which took away nine lives in total.
The widow of Kobe Bryant broke her silence with a mournful update of her Instagram page. The post, which consisted of a photo of the whole family, was also captioned with Vanessa's message that she felt devastated, and no words could describe the pain she and her remaining daughters felt.
In her message, the widow also thanked everyone who shared her grief but asked for respect and privacy, which she and her daughters would need to face their new reality.
In her conclusion, Bryant wrote that the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up a new fund to help the families of the other victims of the helicopter crash.
Millions of fans reached out to Vanessa, but for an unknown reason, a few days later, she shut down the comment section.
One person said: "I can't describe what I've been feeling these past couple days. Just devastated. I'm heartbroken and just extremely sad. May all of you R.I.P."
Another commenter claimed: "Rest In Peace to this legend and his daughter I can’t believe you are gone you were my favorite basketball player and can’t believe he's 13-year-old daughter is gone to rip to this legend 😭💔."
This follower wrote: "It is still hard for me, even though it has been a week every day I wake up to the memories of that, and it just breaks my heart that the helicopter crashed. Although it is amazing that when they found Kobe and Gigi, they were hugging each other💕"
For the time being, it remains unknown what caused the aircraft to crash and take the lives of everyone on board, including the legendary basketball player, his daughter, the pilot, a coach, two 13-year-old girls, and three of their parents.
Among his achievements, Kobe was a five-time NBA champion with the Lakers from Los Angeles, which was the only team he had ever played for, and he has also earned the Olympic gold medal two times during his 20-year career.
Following the death of the famous athlete, his team issued a statement on Instagram, in which it was explained that the Lakers were devastated and forever changed by the sudden loss of Kobe and his daughter and that he was more than a basketball player, but a beloved father and teammate.
