People's report came soon after ET Online revealed that Vanessa was feeling "almost numb to everything" after she lost her husband and their 13-year-old daughter, Gianna. According to ET Online's source:

"Vanessa married Kobe when she was 18 and never expected to live her life without him, and that is going to take time."
