Court documents have shown that Vanessa Bryant, wife of late former NBA star Kobe Bryant, claims that the death of her hubby cost their family hundreds of millions of dollars.
The documents were obtained by E! News which previously reported that Vanessa submitted a wrongful death lawsuit against Island Express Helicopters in February 2020.
According to the documents, Kobe and Gianna’s deaths leave Vanessa seeking economic damages, non-economic damages, prejudgment interest, punitive damages, and other relief as the court deems “just and proper.”
The court papers also read:
Although the total specific amount of personal injury damages that Plaintiff seeks is TBD, Kobe Bryant’s future lost earnings equals hundreds of millions of dollars.”
In May, after Vanessa filed the wrongful death lawsuit, a representative for the helicopter pilot issued a response, saying that the “answering defendant bears no responsibility.”
Furthermore, the documents say that any injuries or damages to plaintiffs and or their decedent were “directly caused by in full or in part by the negligence or fault of plaintiffs and or their decedent, including their knowing and voluntary encounter with the risks involved, and this negligence was a substantial factor in causing their purported damages, for which this answering defendant bears no responsibility.”
