Vanessa Bryant Having Difficulty Processing Her Grief


Last month NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a horrific helicopter crash in Calabasas [click here if you missed that].

Kobe's widow, Vanessa Bryant, is having a hard time processing her grief....

Vanessa poured her heart out in an Instagram post sharing her sadness and anger over the tragedy.

I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.

My heart really goes out to her. Losing a spouse is one thing, losing a child is something else, but together at the same time? I'd be a wreck the rest of my life. Day at a time, sis. Day at a time.

Coby and his fam were surrounded by gentiles.

The video brought tears to my eyes. Gigi was a beautiful tough lil girl. And the other girl that passed as well. Praying for them and anyone that has lost loved ones tragically too young.

To post on social media takes effort, she had to dig really deep to share her thoughts and I'm sure it was extremely therapeutic. Hopefully, after the memorial she can go get some privacy because I see how people can be so cruel and judgmental. I can't imagine the pain & terror of losing a husband and a child all at the same time.

Wow so incredibly sad, just leave you at a loss for words. Condolence to his wife, children and family. And may Kobe and Gianna continue to play basket ball in the astral ancestral realm. RIP.

Social media would be the last thing on my mind. You wouldn’t be hearing shit from me for a long ass time.

What I want to know is how his mother, father and siblings are doing. I feel sad for them that no one has really offered condolences to them.

^^^ Exactly! Every time the media mention his family they’re referring to Vanessa and her people SMH Like Damn he had a Mother, Father, Sisters, and other relatives

I'm pretty sure his parents are devestated and will also be contesting the will.

social media was therapeutic for me when my Mom passed away.

At the time of his death he was just mending fences with him mom and dad ---they had not been speaking for several years. Greed is a mother as the beef was over the parents selling some of his high school basketball memorabilia without , permission...if they were greedy then this may get nasty in the future for a money grab.
