Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa, is suing the L.A. County Sheriff and department for leaked photos from the helicopter crash that took the lives of the basketball star and their child.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit claims deputies at the crash scene were taking photos on their personal phones, not using them for any investigative purposes.
Claims include a deputy showing photos in a bar, trying to impress a woman.
Vanessa Bryant is claiming emotional distress over the photos. The lawsuit claims, “Ms. Bryant feels ill at the thought of strangers gawking at images of her deceased husband and child, and she lives in fear that she or her children will one day confront horrific images of their loved ones online.”
