Vanessa Bryant Explains How She Feels And It’s Heartbreaking
Written by Broadcast HipHop Network on February 11, 2020
“I’m so mad. She had so much life to live.”
Vanessa has shared a little bit here and there since the tragic passing of her husband Kobe and 13-year-old daughter Gigi. First she changed her profile picture to the two of them looking into each other’s eyes and smiling. Then she directed the fans on where to leave the gifts for the Bryant family. This time she digs a little deeper and tells us what she’s going though – even though most of us will never be able to truly imagine such a pain.
Vanessa explains that she is having difficulty grieving the both of her loved ones because she tries to grieve for one person, then she’s reminded of the other. It will be insanely hard for her to grieve and move past this because she not only lost a child, she lost her life partner and best friend. She says it helps her that she has to be strong for her two other daughters, but I’m sure that it can also make it harder once in a while. It’s hard to remain strong for others when sometimes all you want to do is be weak.

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?! 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. 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.
