“Thx so much for all the [love],” Vanessa wrote over the weekend. “@nataliabryant and I have unfortunately had to block fan pages because it’s been really hard to go online and constantly see pics of our beloved Gigi and Kobe under every single square of our explore pages.”

She added, “Blocking the fan pages has helped change the algorithm. We [love] you all but please understand that we had to do this for our own healing not because we don’t appreciate your [love].”

Just recently, Vanessa revealed she got two tattoos in honor of Gigi and Kobe.

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.
