Sa unang pagkakataon matapos ang pagkamatay ni Kobe Bryant, naglabas na ng public statement si Vanessa Bryant sa kanyang Instagram account.
“My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them.”
“We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri.”
Kasamang namatay ng 41-year-old NBA legend ang kanyang 13-year-old daughter na si Gianna, at pito pa sa helicopter crash.
Una nang nag-private ng account ang asawa ni Kobe matapos ang crash at nag-public ulit ito nitong Miyerkoles.
Si Vanessa at Kobe ay mayroong apat na babaeng anak.
