Vanessa Bryant Learned Of Kobe and Gianna’s deaths Through ‘RIP Kobe’ Push Notifications

Vanessa Bryant said she learned of the helicopter crash that k*lled her NBA legend husband Kobe Bryant and their 13-year-old daughter Gianna last January from a family a*sistant nearly two hours after the crash and through a series of “RIP Kobe” push notifications, according to a deposition for a lawsuit she filed against Los Angeles County.

In her testimony, which was given via Zoom on Oct. 12, Bryan said around 11:30 a.m. PT on Jan. 26, 2020, a family a*sistant knocked on the door and told her “there was an accident and that there were five survivors.” The helicopter crash that k*lled Kobe Bryant and Gianna, along with seven others, occurred at approximately 10 a.m. local time that day.

“I asked her if Gianna and Kobe were okay. And she said she wasn’t sure. She didn’t know,” per the deposition, a written copy of which was obtained by the New York Times.
Bryant said that she tried calling her husband and was unable to get through, so she then called her mother and asked her to come watch her youngest daughters, Bianca and Capris.

“As soon as I was on the phone with my mom, I was holding onto my phone, because obviously I was trying to call my husband back, and all these notifications started popping up on my phone, saying ‘RIP Kobe . RIP Kobe. RIP Kobe.'”
When Vanessa Bryant couldn’t get through to her husband, she said she left to pick up her daughter Natalia from an ACT prep class.

“I told her that Daddy and Gigi were in an accident,” Bryant said. “Not to worry I’m sure they’re fine because there’s five survivors. And I’m sure Daddy and Gigi are fine. I just felt, I knew that they would be helping people.”
During this time, Bryant said the family a*sistant was continuing to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, and Bryant was “getting frustrated because I didn’t know — no one was answering my question. No one was telling me whether or not they were okay.”

Bryant said that at this point, she went to the airport and tried to fly via helicopter to the crash site, but was told that weather conditions were too bad.

Bryant gave the testimony as part of her civil lawsuit against Los Angeles County that accuses sheriff’s and fire department employees of improperly sharing photos from the crash scene, including the dead bodies of Kobe Bryant and Gianna. Vanessa Bryant is suing Los Angeles County for invasion of privacy and negligence in an attempt to “make an example of” the county employees “to the community.”

fu*ked up... But that's the media for you unfortunately.



They don't give a fu*k if your family has been notified yet or anything; just as long as they're the first to get the story out.

That’s the pitfalls of social media these days.. everybody wanna be first to post something not even knowing that the family wasn’t even notified yet.. That’s the most devastating way to find out someone you love died..

His death is still something that's unbelievable to me. I'll look up lakers stuff, or just google him, and see his birth date & passing date. And that moment hits me: "Like, fu*k. Kobe is really dead."

Tmz ain't sh*t. They actually called nas to tell him Kelis was in labor with their son. Nothing ain't private any more.

fu*k the media but hell fam... that's most people these days and not just media.

Most people want to be first, like you get some sort of award for it . Folks want to the first to post breaking (gossip etc.) news on Twitter, FB, BX etc. you name it. Don't matter what the story is either, no empathy at all.
