Kobe Bryant's Widow Vanessa Shares Pic of Fan's Tattoo Tribute to Him and Their Daughter Gianna

The widow of the late NBA legend, Kobe Bryant, expressed her gratitude after a fan delivered a stunning tribute to the basketball star.

A fan honored Kobe Bryant by getting a spectacular tattoo of the late star and his daughter, Gianna. Vanessa gave the devoted fan a huge shoutout on her official Instagram page.

In her post, Vanessa praised the gorgeous design of the tattoo and thanked the fan for the special tribute that involved both her late husband and her daughter.

A BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE

The beautiful tattoo uses ample colors and covers almost the entire of the fan's left calf. It shows an adorable image of Kobe and Gianna, smiling side by side.

It also portrays Kobe's Los Angeles Lakers jersey as well as his iconic number, "24." The tattoo is also adorned with colorful butterflies.

"Just came across this. So amazing. What a BEAUTIFUL tribute to my Gigi and Kobe," Vanessa captioned her post.

She especially thanked the fan for honoring Kobe and Gianna together as the NBA player would have never wanted to "outshine [their] baby daughter."

THE HORRIBLE TRAGEDY 

The iconic athlete passed away earlier this year in a helicopter crash that also claimed the life of his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, as well as 7 other people. 

The helicopter crashed in a remote field in Calabasas, California at around 10 am on January 26, 2020. The pilot of the helicopter was also killed in the crash.

While Vanessa continues to mourn the tragic loss, she is also caught amid a lawsuit battle against  Island Express, the company that owned the fateful helicopter.

ACCIDENT OR NEGLIGENCE?

By filing the lawsuit, the late star's widow is seeking punitive damages so that the company is discouraged from showing a disregard for other's safety in the future.

Meanwhile, a representative for Island Express claimed to "TMZ" that the incident was "a tragic accident," denying Vanessa's accusations of negligence.

"This was a tragic accident. We will have no comment on the pending lawsuit."

Vanessa's lawsuit further accused that the Island Express helicopter neglected visual flight rules and was flying despite the unfavorable conditions of that day. It also mentioned that the pilot was flying 180 miles per hour in the heavy fog just a few moments before it went down.
