Kobe Bryant’s wife still can’t process the devastating loss of her husband and thirteen-year-old daughter Gianni as she has revealed in an online post.

The late sportsman died alongside his teenage daughter on January 26, 2020, in a helicopter crash that also claimed the lives of others on board.

Kobe was one of the greatest basketball players and many of his colleagues were in awe of his amazing skills, with singer and actor Justin Timberlake stating that he could do things not humanly possible on the pitch.

In a touching Instagram post, Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant talked about how difficult it has been for her, stating that she has been reluctant to put her feelings into words.

She disclosed that her brain has refused to process that both Kobe and Gigi (the pet name of her late daughter) are gone, revealing that it feels wrong.

The grieving wife and mother questioned why she had to wake up another day when her little girl couldn’t have that same opportunity.

I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.
