The mother of four also shared a post from an Instagram account dedicated to murals of Kobe, which showed one of the 18-time NBA All-Star outside of an establishment with the accompanying message, “They know Kobe is off limits.”
In January, Kobe and Gianna were killed in a California helicopter crash that also claimed the lives of seven others. Kobe was 41 years old at the time and Gianna was 13.
Vanessa is survived by the couple’s daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and 11-month-old Capri.
On Sunday, Vanessa spoke out about Floyd’s death on social media, posting an older photo of Kobe wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt. Floyd said “I can’t breathe,” as former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was filmed pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck.
“My husband wore this shirt years ago and yet here we are again.💔#ICANTBREATHE,” Vanessa posted to Instagram.
Chauvin has since been fired, in addition to the three other officers with him at the time. He has also been charged with murder and manslaughter.
