Vanessa Bryant's Brain "Refuses to Accept That Both Kobe and Gigi Are Gone"


On Monday night, Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram to share her raw thoughts on grieving husband Kobe and daughter Gianna. After writing that her "brain refuses to accept" the pair "are gone," she continued, "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." Bryant--who shared the text alongside a short video highlighting footage of Gianna's basketball team--added that she knows she has to be "strong" for her three other daughters, Natalia, Bianka and Capri, and expressed prayers for the others who also passed away in the January 26 helicopter crash. "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," she wrote. "God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over."
