Vanessa Bryant‘s trying to get affairs in order for her and her kids following Kobe‘s death, and coronavirus is making it difficult … so she’s asking the court for some help.
Vanessa filed legal docs asking a judge to appoint a guardian ad litem for her 2 daughters — Bianka and Natalia — as well as another for Capri … as it pertains to modifying Kobe’s trust to include Capri. This is a standard way of doing things — judges routinely appoint guardians to represent the independent interests of the children — but now she says it’s urgent.
Why? Vanessa says “due to court closures caused by the global pandemic” there is major uncertainty with how the court system will stay open … so she needs to get her ducks in a row STAT.
We broke the story … Vanessa just filed other legal docs asking a judge to amend Kobe’s trust to include their youngest daughter, 9-month-old Capri, who was born after Kobe last amended the trust.
A hearing’s scheduled for next week to see if Vanessa’s guardianship request will be approved. It shouldn’t be a problem, but it shows how coronavirus is wreaking havoc … even with the court system.
