Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa Bryant is seeking hundreds of millions of dollars as part of a wrongful death lawsuit against the helicopter company and the estate of a pilot involved in the deadly January crash that killed her husband and daughter, according to a report.
Bryant filed suit in February, blaming pilot Ara Zobayan — who died alongside Kobe and his daughter Gianna — for failing to obtain weather data before taking off and for failing to cancel the flight when he learned of the poor weather conditions, which included fog.
Now, Vanessa Bryant has made a claim that she is entitled to hundreds of millions in future lost earnings as a result of the LA Laker’s untimely death, The Blast reported.
“As a result of Kobe Bryant’s and GB’s deaths, Vanessa Bryant seeks economic damages, non-economic damages, prejudgment interest, punitive damages, and other relief as the Court deems just and proper,” court papers filed in the case say, according to the outlet.
Other passengers who perished in the Jan. 26 crash in Calabasas, Calif. have since filed their own wrongful death lawsuits.
