Vanessa Bryant Honors Kobe Bryant As Her ‘Forever Valentine’ In Emotional Tribute

Gone, but never forgotten. Vanessa Bryant is feeling the love on her first Valentine’s Day without husband Kobe Bryant. Vanessa remembered the late NBA icon with a romantic Instagram post on the holiday, less than three weeks after he and their daughter Gianna died alongside seven others in a helicopter crash. Vanessa shared a sweet throwback photo of her and Kobe with Lauryn Hill’s “Tell Him” playing in the background, and penned a message to her longtime love and their second oldest child to let them know they’ll always be in her heart.
