Los Angeles (USA), May 23 . .- Vanessa Bryant, widow of former Los Angeles Lakers star player Kobe Bryant, will receive an inheritance of 200 million dollars.
Kobe and her daughter Gianna died in a helicopter accident in Southern California.
Vanessa will be the recipient of an inheritance of $ 200 million from her late husband’s initial $ 5 million stake in BodyArmor.
“I lost a dear friend. I lost a brother with Kobe and BodyArmor lost a founding father,” said Mike Repole, founder of BodyArmor.
He added, “Kobe Bryant’s fingerprints are all over the BodyArmor brand. The brand would not be in the position it is in if Kobe was not a believer in the project in 2012 and 2013.”
Repole sold a significant equity stake in the brand to Coca-Cola in 2018, and the deal valued his company at $ 2 billion.
When the transaction closed, Bryant’s stake was worth approximately $ 200 million, an amount his widow, Vanessa, will receive.
