Kobe Bryant's Wife Vanessa Receives A Huge Inheritance
Nicki Swift
Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna's deaths in late January 2020 felt like a tragedy to so many fans, who didn't even know the athlete personally, which only means it must have been far worse for his family, including his wife Vanessa Bryant and their three other children, Capri, Bianka, and Natalia.
Although nothing can truly make the loss better, it was reported in late May 2020 that Kobe was worth $600 million at the time of his death, thanks to his basketball deals and his business investments, according to Extra TV. Vanessa stands to inherit his stake in BodyArmor, a sports drink brand founded by Mike Repole. In 2013, Kobe invested $5 million for a 10% stake in the brand. In 2018, the basketball player's stake was worth $200 million after a deal the brand made with Coca-Cola, which spiked the brand's worth to upwards of $2 billion.
Repole was floored by Kobe's passing, telling Fox Business,
"I lost a dear friend. I lost a brother with Kobe and BodyArmor lost a founding father. Kobe's fingerprints are all over the BodyArmor brand. The brand wouldn't be in the position it's in if Kobe wasn't a believer back in 2012 and 2013...To me, BodyArmor really is his business legacy."
Kobe wasn't just a guy with money to throw around, either, he was really active in the BodyArmor brand.
According to Fox Business, Kobe was on the company's board of directors and had creative control over the national ad campaigns, going so far as to write, direct, and narrate the first ever TV ad for BodyArmor in 2017. It's unclear if Vanessa plans on holding the same kind of leadership role or what she'll do with her stakes in the company, but since it was clearly so dear to her husband, it's likely she'll continue his legacy in some capacity.
Kobe invested in a couple other companies as well, including the UFC after the organization made BodyArmor its official drink. UFC president Dana White said that Kobe was pumped about the move. White told TMZ in February 2020,
"Kobe got a distribution from the UFC the Wednesday before the incident and he was so pumped up and excited and he said what everybody always says, 'I wish I had invested more!'"
In 2013, Kobe and his friend Jeff Stibel founded Bryant Stibel & Company, a firm that has invested in over 28 companies, according to Extra, and Kobe was smart with his money. While discussing his second life as a money man since retiring from the NBA, he once told USA Today,
"I understand the importance of building value and being smart with your finances."
Kobe passed away in a helicopter crash in Calabasas with Gianna and seven other people in late January 2020. According to CNN, Vanessa filed a wrongful death suit against Island Express, the helicopter company, and deceased pilot Ara Zobayan, though the pilot's family responded that the passengers were negligent and knew some risk was involved in the flight.
Vanessa and Kobe married in April 2001, and she memorialized him on Instagram for their wedding anniversary. In mid-April 2020, she shared a picture of the two hugging as Kobe kissed her cheek, captioned,
"My king, my heart, my best friend. Happy 19th wedding anniversary baby. I miss you so much. I wish you were here to hold me in your arms. I love you."
Given that she met Kobe when she was just 17 years old and he was 20, they really did know each other for their entire adult lives and stayed seemingly madly in love with each other throughout. After the wedding, Kobe told MTV News,
"Love is a funny thing. I can't explain it and I can't understand it. All I know is, she caught my heart and I just knew that she was the one."
It makes sense that Vanessa is inheriting her husband's accumulated wealth, and she'll certainly know what he would have wanted to do with it. Watch the video to learn how Kobe Bryant's Wife Vanessa Receives A Huge Inheritance.

    She should donate it to the businesses affected by the looting and people in despair because of the pandemic. She was already rich, do something with it that feels good. Kobe seemed like a kind hearted person.

    I think VANESSA would give away all that money If she could only get back her Love of her life KOBE and her beautiful Gianna 😥

    But not to worry about $$$ makes it a lot easier. Women that loose their spouse or partners income can also end up loosing a home. That is double devastation especially with kids. Vanessa doesn’t have to worry about finances and their way of living changing. Some women fall into poverty after loosing a spouse and have to work 2 jobs while caring for children. Sometimes even in lose we can count our blessings.

    You can have all the money in the world but if you don’t have your love one and your daughter money doesn’t mean anything because the most important thing is happiness she lost a husband and a child and I know if it was me I wouldn’t even be in my perfect mind and I know she feels the same So I wouldn’t care about millions it won’t bring my family back God bless their soul .

    So call Black man. Hopefully you learn from this story... This is why you should always marry a so call black woman at all cost. See all that money this so call black man worked and earn is now going to a different race and for the betterment of their people...You gets nothing do black man black woman...The wife of his doesn't even speak to Kobe's family.....This is another reason why the so black community remains poor and every other community gets richer...

    If a lucky woman have such a handsome and loving husband. Then be unlucky enough to lose him. No amount of money can compensate for that loss. He literally made her queen of his life. I can't imagine such big loss in life.
