Vanessa Bryant can’t believe her husband Kobe and daughter Gianna are gone.
In a new Instagram post, she opened up about the grieving process, writing, “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?!”
She went on, “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.”
Vanessa closed by writing, “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.”
Kobe and Gigi and seven others died January 26 in a horrific helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.
Vanessa recently confirmed a memorial has been planned for 10 a.m. on February 24, 2020, at Staples Center.
