The basketball legend d!ed in a helicopter cr-ash this January alongside his daughter, Gianna, and seven others.Kobe, 41, is surv!ved by his 37-year-old wife and daughters Bianka and 11-month-old Capri.
Vanessa posted a video of Capri – nicknamed ‘KoKo’ – wearing a festive bow and eating orange segments out of a bowl.
“What are you eating?” Vanessa asks to which Capri replies “orange” prompting her mum to say “Good job! Orange – you say it like daddy.”
Vanessa has posted several videos since Kobe’s loss showing Capri growing up, including one of her taking her first steps. She met Kobe in 1999 when Vanessa was working as a background model on a music video and was engaged just six months later.
The former Los Angeles Lakers star referred to Vanessa, 37, as “my Queen” and “best friend” in an Instagram post just eight weeks before the tr-agic cr-ash. Kobe and Gianna, herself a promising basketball player, were on their way to the Mamba Academy for basketball practice when the chopper cra-shed at around 10 am on January 25 this year.
The aircraft was flying in conditions that had fo-rced the LAPD to ground their own helicopters. In the wake of the cr-ash Sheriff’s deputies so-calling took cell phone pictures of the helicopter d!saster v!ctims including Kobe and Gianna “for their own gratification”.
In response, a new law has now been passed making it il-legal for first responders to take unauthorized photos of a de-ad person at an acc!dent following Kobe Bryant’s loss. The “Kobe Bryant Law,” signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday, will take eff-ect on January 1.Kobe recently made the list of highest-paid de-ad celebrities, coming in at number six on Forbes’ “Highest-Paid Dead Celebrities of 2020” list.
