Vanessa Bryant sobs in LA court and recalls horrifying moment she learned of graphic family photos

Vanessa Bryant burst into tears on Friday at the booth as she recalled the moment she learned that first responders had leaked footage of her husband Kobe’s horrific helicopter crash.

Bryant cried heavily and gasped as she testified to run outside after seeing media reports of the photos so her daughters wouldn’t see her cry.

The late NBA legend’s wife said she was breastfeeding her youngest child when she heard the news, saying, “I felt like I wanted to run down the block and scream.”

‘I can’t escape my body. I can’t escape what I feel,” she told the court.

Bryant confessed that she suffers from severe panic attacks because she fears that the graphic images of her late husband and daughter will one day surface online.

“I live in fear every day of going on social media and seeing these images pop up,” adding that she had never seen the images.

“I never want to see these pictures,” she said. ‘I want to remember them as they were.

Bryant is seeking millions in damages from Los Angeles County after learning that first responders allegedly sent gory images of her Kobe and Gianna between them.

Multiple witnesses involved in the incident have stated that they saw the footage, which caused Bryant to collapse repeatedly over the course of the trial.

She was even forced to leave the courtroom last week after a bartender, Victor Gutierrez, testified that a sheriff showed him photos of severed body parts after the crash.

Earlier this week, LA Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Russell revealed that he sent photos of the wreckage to Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Deputy Ben Sanchez a day after the incident.

Russell said he was playing the popular Call of Duty shooter game with Sanchez when he told the sheriff’s deputy he had crime-scene photos he allegedly got from fellow LA Deputy Joey Cruz. TMZ reported.

Los Angeles fire officials reportedly knew that sharing graphic photos of the crash that killed Bryant would land them in hot water because they were dubbed “plutonium” and had to be removed.

Sky Cornell, a public information officer for the LA County Fire Department, told a jury on Tuesday that first responders limited the damage after it was revealed they shared photos of the helicopter crash that killed Bryant, 41, and his daughter, Gianna. 13, in 2020.

Cornell, who admitted to investigators that he “wanted to see Kobe” while the photos were being shared, said an official warned the department of what they were doing. TMZ reported.

‘Just a reminder folks, there are no secrets! Somehow people are exposed,” the email reads, Cornell said.

He added that colleague Tony Imbrenda, who admitted to sharing the photos at an awards ceremony, called the photos “plutonium” and that he had to “get rid of them”.

Imbrenda, another public information official, was fired on Wednesday as he testified that he shared photos of the helicopter crash at the 2020 Golden Mike Awards, a journalism awards gala in Southern California.

Cornell claimed that was when he first came across the photos, neither of which showed Bryant’s body, but did depict other human remains.

Cornell told the court on Thursday that while the setting was not appropriate for sharing the graphic photos, he claimed they were being used as a “training” opportunity.

Also on Thursday, Arlin Kahan, another firefighter, said he was the person who took the first pictures of the crash and sent them to Imbrenda, who described Kahan as “the one who manages the pictures.”

Kahan claimed his photos were intended to document the crash site, not to capture human remains.

Widow Vanessa Bryant’s attorney refuted the claim, suggesting that it was a fire chief who took the photos of the crash for documentation purposes, not Kahan.

“You weren’t even a first responder,” the lawyer said, according to… Insider.

Kahan also claimed that his intention was to delete the photos once the investigation was closed.

On Monday, Brian Jordan, a retired LA County firefighter, claimed he had been instructed by his superiors to take photos of the helicopter crash site.

Jordan denied sending the footage to anyone outside the sheriff or fire department, but at times seemed confused about the events.
