VANESSA Bryant says she fears that sick trolls will share images of her late husband and daughter’s remains taken at the helicopter crash site.
Court documents viewed by TMZ revealed that she asked Los Angeles County Police Chief Alex Villanueva on the day of the tragedy to ensure the security of the site and did not take any photos because there were no survivors.
Vanessa was appalled when police allegedly shared images of the tragedy in a bar.
Her lawsuit alleges that within 48 hours of the accident, photos went viral to at least 10 members of the department, and that a deputy took between 25-100 photos of the scene.
She said the “leak” had put her in a “continuous cycle of suffering”.
Vanessa claims that the trolls threatened her by claiming to have the photos and promising to release them.
In the document, she said: “One of two things will happen: either close-up photos or the bodies of my husband and daughter will go viral online, or I will continue to live in fear of it happening. out.
“I am extremely angry when people I trust to protect the dignity of my husband and daughter have abused their positions to obtain mementos of their deaths, as if possession of photographs of Their remains somehow make them special.
“It makes me sad to think that deputies and firefighters have been staring at pictures of the bodies of my husband and children for no reason.”
Vanessa’s lawsuit accuses Los Angeles County of invasion of privacy and negligence.
When she was deposed on October 12, Vanessa recalls the moment she learned about the accident When a family aide knocked on her door about two hours after the accident.
“She told me there was an accident and there were five survivors,” the mother of four testified, according to USA Today.
“I asked her if Gianna and Kobe were okay. And she said she wasn’t sure. She didn’t know.”
‘I FEEL Sick’
Vanessa said she tried calling Kobe and her mother before getting in the car to pick up her other daughter, Natalia, from her ACT class.
She recalls: “I picked her up and told her that Dad and Gigi had an accident.
“Don’t worry. I’m sure they’re fine because there are five survivors. And I’m sure Dad and Gigi are fine. I just feel, I know they’re going to help everyone.”
Vanessa said she started getting notifications on her phone that read: “RIP Kobe”.
The mother said she tried to get a helicopter to bring her child to the crash site but was blocked because the weather conditions were “too bad”.
Los Angeles Lakers CEO Rob Pelinka then drove Vanessa to the sheriff’s station in Malibu. She admitted she was “unprepared” for what happened next.
Vanessa added: “I said: What’s going on? Where are they? Why didn’t anyone tell me what was going on?
“And then they said, ‘Actually, this is not a good space. Let’s take you back to the first room. ‘ So then they led us to this little closet area where we waited and waited. There was a police chief present.
“I asked him: ‘What’s going on? Why isn’t anyone telling me what’s going on?” They will not answer. “
Vanessa claims it wasn’t until about four hours after the collision that Villanueva told her what had happened.
The county maintains that the photos its employees took of the crash site were not made public or posted online.
It comes later Reports emerged in October that Vanessa could be forced to take a “test” on her mental state after filing the lawsuit.
