Vanessa Bryant Is Seeking Millions in Damages in Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Helicopter Company

Vanessa Bryant is suing a helicopter company following the deaths of her husband Kobe Bryant and their 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

A wrongful death lawsuit was filed against Island Express Helicopters after the company’s pilot Ara Zobayan flew a helicopter that crashed and killed all passengers on board, as well as the pilot.

People obtained the court documents and it does not specify the amount of damages being sought by the Bryant family, but it was estimated that the family has lost “hundreds of millions” in future earnings because of the loss of Kobe.

“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,” the documents say.

Last week, Vanessa celebrated what would have been Gianna‘s eighth grade graduation.
