Vanessa Bryant posted a photo of Kobe Bryant carrying her on his back to Instagram with the caption, “I love you forever, baby. Happy Anniversary.” She also added #21 since this would have been their 21st wedding anniversary. The comments are flooded with hearts and support for Vanessa. It’s sweet to see how much love she still has for her late husband and how much people still love her and her family and legacy. Vanessa actively works to keep the legacy of her husband and daughter alive with the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation. According to their website, the foundation helps support underprivileged athletes and provides equal opportunities for both girls and boys in sports — a vision that both Gianna and Kobe believed in.
Vanessa has sued Los Angeles County after some employees took and inappropriately shared photos of the helicopter crash site where Kobe, Gianna, and seven other people died, per USA Today. The suit is pending, and a jury trial is set for July if a settlement isn’t agreed before that, according to the Los Angeles Times.
