No mention of mom & dad, even though they sat right in the audience. No words from sisters either, ok.

Not trying to be mean/inconsiderate but this "Service" was ridiculous. IMHO i feel the same way about all celebrity/political funeral services. These figures are idolized and mourned over more than some people's own relatives or close neighbors.

Every month cities in the US have funerals for people that have NO ONE. Some of these people live in our own communities.

But when it's a celebrity, people find a way to "be there".

No taking anything away from the Bryant Family because their deaths was definitely a tragedy. I pray the Family finds the comfort and support they need to -not forget- but to move on.

Glad I didn't watch. Beyonce sang? Lol Why not get a local choir of kids or something. Anyway the family had a private memorial and should've left it at that.

It’s crazy they didn’t let his Parents speak. Damn Muthafuckas acting like they don’t exist. At least Shaq mention them.

They never even mentioned the family, no parents, siblings, or other family, yall couldn't even find a cousin?, this was so selfish.

When I watched the memorial, I realized how deep the rift was between Kobe and his parents and now Vanessa. If it were not for them, Vanessa wouldn't have the millions she has today. She would probably be on the side rode selling tacos somewhere.

At the end of the day, Kobe's parents lost a child too, not just Vanessa. But I guess she was too busy being petty and vindictive to make that correlation in her speech.

And even if the parents were too grief stricken to speak, you can't tell me that not one person on Kobe's side was not willing to talk about his life BEFORE he became a superstar.

Well like somebody said before, Kobe taught her to be that way. Now those kids will probably never see their grandparents SMH!

And btw, I would say people be careful who you select as your partner in life, but this rule doesn't apply in Kobe's case

Just remember folks, when death occurs, people have no problem showing you who they truly are!

She's a money hungry bitch. She made everything about her. How much Kobe loved and adored her. She is a complete narcissist with an insipid and sinister soul. All of his money will go tho her family, leaving his family with nothing. She didn't even bother to acknowledge them, spoke only of herself, what a selfish woman she is.

Kobes parents did not give him his millions, he earned every penny on his own. Whatever issue(s) existed between him and his parents was just that...between him and his parents. It's not for Vanessa to fix after his death. Get a grip.

So much negativity in here, is this a black site or what? I LOVE AND MISS YOU KOBE, the GOAT.

Kobe's family and lineage was directly responsible for his success. He pissed on his family, while elevating hers. He was blackmailed into marrying her bc she was a minor when they started dating. His fortune will now be passed into the Mexican community.

@ 10:21 Kobe was a narcissist. Vanessa pretty much stayed outta the limelight during Kobe's career unlike. Failed actress,Ayesha Curry

Ya'll should google what his parents did to him and then speak on it. It was all over the news years ago because his mother and siblings were money hungry. He did reconcile with his sisters.
