Vanessa Bryant announced the launch of a clothing line to honor her late teenage daughter, Gianna, who died in a helicopter crash Jan. 26, 2020 that also claimed the lives of eight others, including Gianna’s father and former Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant.
Vanessa Bryant made the announcement Friday and indicated that the line will launch Saturday, May 1, which would’ve been Gianna’s 15th birthday.
Crash Scene Photos:
A young Californian police officer allegedly leaked photos of the NBA legend’s body in a bid to impress a woman at a bar.
Bryant’s lawsuit alleged that within 48 hours of the crash, photos had spread to at least 10 members of the department.
One deputy took between 25 and 100 photos of the crash scene on his cell phone, according to the suit.
The pilot who crashed the helicopter carrying Kobe Bryant, killing all nine aboard, made a series of poor decisions that led him to fly blindly into a wall of clouds where he became so disoriented he thought he was climbing when the craft was plunging toward a Southern California hillside, federal safety officials said Tuesday.
Kobe’s agent told the packed crowd, he almost didn’t respond because it was business, but felt at this moment he should text with his longtime friend and brother. He responded he had seen that exact agent recently at a Lakers game.
In the text chain, Rob explained, Kobe was asking so he could help get a friend’s young daughter an internship at the agency so she could get a foot in the door of the business.
The text came through around 9:30 a.m. — Kobe was texting him from inside of the helicopter.
