Little has been released about Kobe Bryant’s grieving wife, Vanessa.
She has kept a very low profile and also made her Instagram private to avoid prying eyes.
This comes after her basketball legend husband and 13-year-old daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash on Sunday.
The NBA legend and Vanessa married in April 2001 when he was 22 and she was 18.
Together they have four children: Gianna, 13, who was killed alongside her father, Natalia, 17, three-year-old Bianka, and seven-month-old Capri.
‘It’s an extremely difficult and devastating time for Vanessa and the whole family,’ a source told People.
Another insider said Vanessa is completely ‘devastated’ and can ‘hardly keep it together’.
‘She can’t finish a sentence without crying. But she is working very hard to pull it together for the other girls. She now has to be the strong one.’
