Nearly ten days later, the 37-year-old has taken to Instagram to share an old Kobe interview with Extra, according to a People report.

In the clip, the last basketballer revealed that Vanessa was his best friend and that his daughters simply referred to him as "daddy."


Vanessa shared the video, which has garnered a little over eight million views, with her ten million+ followers with read heart emoji caption.

Kobe had met his wife during his short-lived career as a rapper, on the set of his only music video in 1999. The basketballer had recounted their first meeting in a 2015 Showtime documentary saying:

"I would finish a take and go to my trailer but I would wonder where she was the entire time."


The five-time championship star stated that he had eventually left his trailer in search of the beauty as he wanted to talk to her.

When he finally found her, he got her phone number and was soon spending hours talking to and bonding with Vanessa over the phone.

Mirror added that the duo's love affair intensified when they realized their mutual love for Disney.


Due to that, they often spent their time hanging out at Disneyland, and from then on, Vanessa grew to become Kobe's best friend.

Up until his death, the 18-time All-Star was a friend and a great father to his four daughters. Kobe had dedicated months coaching and inspiring his 13-year-old Gianna in the game they both loved, according to CNN.

On the day of their deaths, the duo had been on their way to Gianna's Lady Mambas team game against the Fresno Lady Heat at his Mamba Sports Academy.

The 13-year-old basketballer, who inherited her father's competitive streak, was ready to take over as heir to his legacy before she passed away on January 26, 2020.
