Vanessa Bryant Warns Against Buying Fake Kobe Bryant Items At Auction

Vanessa Bryant, 38, is giving a fair warning to those Kobe Bryant fans who are interested in purchasing certified memorabilia of the late legendary Lakers player who tragically passed away in January, along with their daughter Gianna Bryant and 7 other souls.

Vanessa Bryant took to her Instagram story to post a pair of signed Kobe sneakers with a message of fair warning.  She stated,

Heard there’s a lot of FAKE items being auctioned.  Careful what you purchase(d). #HoarderWife Keepsakes


Since his passing, Kobe Bryant items have reportedly been up for auction with signed Jerseys going for $10-$20k, conservatively.

After the sudden and tragic helicopter accident that took the lives of all the passengers on board, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department came under fire for allegedly sharing photos from the crash site.

Eight deputies allegedly shot cellphone photos of the bodies of Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant at the site for their own personal gratification and now Vanessa Bryant is filing a lawsuit against the department citing that the leaked photos have caused “severe emotional distress.”

On Sep. 16, she also called out L.A. Sheriff Alex Villanueva for challenging LeBron James to match a $175,000 reward for the shooter of two ambushed L.A. deputies.  She shared the sentiment of a social user media by reposting a message in her Instagram story calling out the Sheriff.  The message read:

‘He shouldn’t be challenging LeBron James to match a reward or “to step up to the plate.”  He couldn’t even “step up to the plate” and hold his deputies accountable for photographing dead children.’
