Vanessa Bryant finally broke her social media silence after she took to Instagram to share an image of a tribute tattoo her sister-in-law got in honor of Kobe and Gianna Bryant.

...Vanessa had filed a lawsuit against the firm that owned the helicopter that crashed last month which led to the death of Kobe, Gianna, and the seven other people on board.

Pop Culture revealed that the 37-year-old took to Instagram to show off the tribute tattoo which Kobe's older sister, Sharia Washington got on her back.

 

The tattoo, which was a large image on Sharia's left shoulder, featured a blade of a black mamba snake in the shape of an infinity symbol. 

The infinity symbol then went on to surround Gianna and Kobe's basketball jersey numbers, 2 and 24. 

Through the post's caption, Vanessa thanked her sister-in-law for the sweet gesture as she tagged Sharia who also shared the photo on her Instagram page, and then hashtagged Kobe and Gigi. 

 

The bereaved shared the image shortly after Us Magazine reported that the deaths of her husband and her daughter had taken a toll on her. 

According to the site's source, the former model has been "living in a fog" since her loved ones died in a helicopter crash in January.

It would be recalled that the mother-of-four along with family and friends had just hosted a Celebration of Life event in honor of Kobe and Gigi.

During the memorial, which was held at the Staples Center, Michael Jordan had given a moving speech that touched one of Vanessa's daughters, Natalie.

InTouch divulged that while Michael had spoken at the podium, Vanessa had put her arm around Natalie and stroked her gently. 

During his speech, the 57-year-old basketballer stated that Kobe had given everything he had, whether it was in the game of basketball, in life, or as a parent.

 

Meanwhile, Today has revealed that Vanessa had filed a lawsuit against the firm that owned the helicopter that crashed last month which led to the death of Kobe, Gianna, and the seven other people on board.

The wrongful death lawsuit, which was filed just before the memorial service, accused the Island Express Helicopters of putting the helicopter in the air when conditions were not safe for flying.
