Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa ‘so mad’ as she tries to explain her grief in heartbreaking tribute to daughter Gianna

She lost husband Kobe, 41, and daughter Gianna, 13, in a helicopter crash in Calabasas last month. They were two of the nine passengers killed in the crash. Sharing a sweet montage of Gianna playing basketball, Vanessa said she feels ‘so mad’ that her baby girl has been taken away from her so soon and shed some light on just how difficult it’s been for to come to terms with losing both Gigi and Kobe.

 

 

 

 

She wrote: ‘I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. ‘It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me.

 

 

It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live.’ Vanessa said that she is torn between her anger and staying strong for her three other daughters she shares with basketball legend Kobe. ‘It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me.

Vanessa said that she is torn between her anger and staying strong for her three other daughters she shares with basketball legend Kobe. ‘We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now.’ The helicopter was also carrying Gianna’s team-mates, Alyssa Altobelli and Payton Chester, Alyssa’s parents, John and Keri Altobelli, Payton’s mother Sarah Chester and their basketball coach Christina Mauser, as well as pilot Ara Zobayan. The crash occurred on the same day as the Grammys took place in Los Angeles, with the ceremony honouring Kobe and Gianna throughout the awards.
