The wife of legendary NBA star Kobe Bryant is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in a wrongful death lawsuit. Kobe was killed in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.
Vanessa Bryant is now seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in “future lost earnings” as a result in Kobe’s death.
“As a result of Kobe Bryant’s and GB’s deaths, Vanessa Bryant seeks economic damages, non-economic damages, prejudgment interest, punitive damages, and other relief as the Court deems just and proper,” court papers filed in the case say, according to The Blast.
The lawsuit is blaming Ara Zobayan, the pilot, for the death. She allegeds that Zobayan failed to “obtain weather data before taking off and for failing to cancel the flight when he learned of the poor weather conditions, which included fog.”
The other families in the crash also filed wrongful death lawsuits.
