In a second reposted video, Bryant wrote, "I wanted my boo boo's @kobebryant sweet message transferred on me. @nikkohurtado came through for me. Thank you!"

Kobe, their daughter Gianna, along with seven other people, were killed on January 26 while taking a helicopter to the Mamba Academy for basketball practice in nearby Thousand Oaks.

Vanessa Bryant has filed a  wrongful death lawsuit against the owner of the helicopter company in the crash. According to the Los Angeles Times, the complaint was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Fillmore-based Island Express Holding Corp. and Island Express Helicopter.  The lawsuit alleges that pilot Ara Zobayan, who also died in the crash, failed “to use ordinary care in piloting the subject aircraft” and was negligent.
