Vanessa Bryant Reveals She Found Out About Kobe's Passing Through Social Media
Oct 25, 2021
Vanessa Bryant has revealed more details about the harrowing morning she learned of the death of her husband, legendary basketball player Kobe Bryant and their second eldest daughter, Gianna. Tragically, Bryant found out about the loss of her family members through social media before police or medical staff had a chance to notify her.
Bryant is currently in the process of suing LA County for taking photos of the helicopter crash site where Kobe, Gianna, and 7 others perished and distributing them, causing her further emotional distress. In court filings of her recent deposition, obtained by People, Bryant claims that a family assistant initially informed her that her husband and daughter had been involved in a serious accident, but that there were five survivors on the scene.
While attempting to get in touch with Kobe via phone, she says multiple notifications kept alerting her of the tragic truth.
