Besides being an American citizen, Vanessa Bryant is also of Mexican, English, Irish, and German ancestry. Additionally, she is also a well-known philanthropist.

She established a philanthropic organization dubbed the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation for the benefit of young and suffering families. They had four children: Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, Natalia Diamante Bryant, Capri Kobe Bryant, and Bianka Bella Bryant.

What is the net worth of Vanessa?

Vanessa Bryant’s net worth is estimated to be $75 million. She also owned three villas in Newport Beach after her divorce. Her career also made a huge impact on her property.

Her late husband passed away in a helicopter crash in 2020, along with their 13-year-old daughter Gianna. After this tragedy, she decided to continue her family’s tradition and works to fulfill her late husband’s wishes.

What was Kobe Bryant’s fortune?

In 2016, he retired from NBA as the third all-time leading scorer. In a two decade long career, he won 5 NBA titles. His net worth was estimated to be around $600 million at the time of his demise.

It was a record for an athlete at that time to earn $680 million in his salary and endorsements, both on and off the court.

In 2016, Kobe Bryant and Jeff Stibel formed a $100 million venture capital firm called Bryant Stibel. It focused on investments in technology, media, and data companies. Nike, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Mercedes-Benz, and Hublot were just some of the brands he promoted during his NBA career.

Who inherited Kobe Bryant’s fortune?

It seems that Vanessa will inherit Kobe Bryant’s fortune, although every state in America has different inheritance laws. If all goes well, his property will be divided equally between his wife and children. Meanwhile, Vanessa will receive her share of the deposit once the legal requirements are met.

The children will receive their part of the deposit in the future.
