"I'm So Mad"

Vanessa Bryant is missing her husband and daughter. The celebrity mom took to Instagram on Monday (February 10) to share a snippet of her grieving process with supporters.


“I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words,” Vanessa told her Instagram followers. “My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone,” the celebrity mom revealed. “I can’t process both at the same time,” Vanessa admitted.

“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,” Bryant said. “Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity,” Vanessa asked.

Kobe and Gianna Bryant were killed in a helicopter crash last month. The former NBA player and his daughter were two of nine victims in the accident.

“I’m so mad,” Vanessa told her supporters on Monday. “[Gianna] had so much life to live.” Vanessa went on to clarify that she was not angry with her husband and daughter for leaving her. “[I’m] mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka, and Capri,” she said.

“I know what I’m feeling is normal,” Bryant told her social media followers. “It’s part of the grieving process,” she added. “I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this.”

More than five million Instagram followers praised Vanessa Bryant for her transparency. “Your openness about your grief is so remarkable,” award-winning designer Ohara Davies-Gaetano wrote after reading the touching post. “Continuing to lift you all up in prayers,” Shaunie O’Neal shared. “We love you!”

A celebration of life event for Kobe and Gianna Bryant is scheduled for Monday, February 24, 2020, at the Staples Center. Stay tuned for more Kobe Bryant tribute news!
