Kobe’s Wife + Daughter Get Tats
Recently, Vanessa honored both Kobe and her late daughter GiGi following their January 2020 deaths. She and daughter Natalia relied on celebrity artist Nikko Hurtado for their remembrance body art.
“(All my tatts are single needle to keep the lines clean)…jokingly referred to as “vato style” in this video since I’m still using this older historical process. This style is not really called “vato style” (for you LITERAL headline writing folks)…. It’s referred to as Single Needle🪡 🤦🏻♀️. First tatt of the night done…. 8 hours to decide on the font 🙃😁 @nikkohurtado#Mambacita ❤️🦋 Thank you @bjbetts for collaborating with Nikko on my font! Tatt took 5 mins. ❤️”
“Mambacita ❤️🦋 #Gianna#Gigi#2“

Kobe’s Widow Speaks On Her Life + Motivation
In a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, Vanessa spoke about how her daughters Natalia, Bianka and Capri helped her cope with the family tragedy. She was featured on the magazine’s “Women Changing The World” cover.
“This pain is unimaginable. You just have to get up and push forward. Lying in bed crying isn’t going to change the fact that my family will never be the same again. But getting out of bed and pushing forward is going to make the day better for my girls and for me. So that’s what I do.”
Vanessa Slams Meek Mill For Kobe Lyrics
Recently, Bryant went to her Instagram page and didn’t hold back on checking Philly rapper Meek Mill. She quoted his leaked lyrics and explained just how much of an impact they’ve had on her.
“Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period. I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this. If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact.”
