In the wake of NBA star, Kobe Bryant dying in a gory helicopter crash with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianni and 7 others, it has emerged that Kobe and wife, Vanessa agreed to stop using a helicopter as their means of transportation.
It has also been alleged that Vanessa Bryant refused to fly with her husband in their helicopter anytime he asked her to, and this could be the reason why she wasn’t involved in the crash.
Kobe Bryant in a 2018 interview with Alex Rodriguez revealed why he feels comfortable travelling around Los Angeles with a helicopter, he disclosed that;
“I was sitting in traffic and I wound up missing like a school play. I had to figure out a way where I could still train and focus on the craft but still not compromise family time.
So that’s when I looked into helicopters, to be able to get down and back in 15 minutes and that’s when it started”.
Below is the 2018 interview of Kobe Bryant explaining to Alex Rodriguez on his decision to fly a helicopter in and outside Los Angeles.
