Kobe's sister Sharia Bryant also took to Instagram recently to honor her niece. She did so by sharing never before seen pics of Gianna.
Gianna looked absolutely bright and gorgeous in the first picture of her aunt's post. She was dressed in playful clothing, with Mickey Mouse attire and a polka-dot bow in her hair.
Many are familiar with the lawsuit that Bryant has launched against deputies due to the sharing of unsanctioned photos of the crash that Kobe and Gigi died in. Recently, the LA County spoke on this, stating:
"The county does not condone this showing of accident site photographs and has taken corrective personnel actions accordingly,''
However, they alleged, this does not mean that Bryant herself has any legal ground. They stated that the pictures referenced in this case did not contain images of human remains.
