NBA legend, Kobe Bryant, was honored during the 2020 ESPY Awards on Sunday evening (June 22) nearing the five month anniversary of his untimely death in a fatal helicopter crash.
Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, along with seven other people, were killed on January 26 while taking a helicopter to the Mamba Academy in nearby Thousand Oaks.
In February, Vanessa Bryant filed a wrongful death complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court against Fillmore-based Island Express Holding Corp. and Island Express Helicopter.
PEOPLE reports the documents did not specify the exact amount but estimates the Bryant family lost "hundreds of millions" in future earnings due to Kobe's tragic death.
The documents reportedly state, "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.”
