Kobe Bryant And The Notebook

0 484

Kobe Bryant was one of the most loved heroes in the world. Besides winning 5 NBA championships with his team, The Lakers, Kobe was always amazing at winning people’s hearts. And his tragic demise along with his daughter, Gianna Bryant, left the world crying.

How Did He Die?

Kobe and Gianna passed away in a devastating helicopter crash on January 26th, 2020. Kobe left behind his wife, Vanessa and three daughters, Natalia, Bianka and Capri. A memorial service for the deceased two was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It was more of a celebration of the life of the father-daughter duo than a memorial service.

Vanessa Bryant took the microphone first and started off the service by giving a heartbreaking speech for her daughter, Gigi. She shared how lovely Gianna was as a person AND as a daughter.

Kobe Bryant And The Notebook

And then the mother of four, who had been married to the NBA star for nearly two decades, paid tribute to her late husband, Kobe Bryant and spoke of their undying love. Vanessa Bryant called him the romantic one in the relationship and the lengths he had gone to for their relationship.

And then Vanessa mentioned The Notebook and how it had played a role in making their love story special.

“He gifted me the actual notebook and the blue dress Rachel McAdams wore in The Notebook movie,” she shared.

When she asked Kobe why he chose to give her the blue dress, he said Ali wore it in the scene when she came back to Noah. This scenario fits well with Kobe and Vanessa’s love story as they had decided to call off their 2011 divorce filings and had reconciled a month before Vanessa had posted on Instagram about this gift.


“We had hoped to grow old together like the movie. We really had an amazing love story. Kobe and I loved each other with our whole beings, two perfectly imperfect people making a beautiful family and raising our sweet and amazing girls,” she said.
