Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them… I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved.

Abigail Disney about Kobe Bryant

While multiple fans and friends of the late NBA star mourn his tragic loss, social activist and filmmaker Abigail Disney released a pretty controversial comment about Kobe Bryant on Twitter.

In her tweet, Abigail recalled a long-forgotten scandal, in which Kobe was involved, and called the sportsman “a rapist.”

In their turn, fans of the late star got furious about Disney’s offensive tweet and rushed to Kobe Bryant’s defense.

How Vanessa Bryant supported her husband

Frankly speaking, we have no desire to recall the scandal, which happened many years ago, not to defame the good name of the late Kobe Bryant. In a few words, the NBA star was accused of sexual assault in 2003, but the case was closed in a year because the accuser refused to testify.

Vanessa Bryant supported her husband and was by his side amid that tough period. She made it loud and clear that she didn’t believe in all those accusations.

Vanessa said about Kobe:

He is not a criminal.

In his turn, Kobe admitted he was grateful for his beloved wife’s support:

I love my wife with all my heart. She's my backbone.

Kobe Bryant was not just a sports legend, he was a loving husband and a doting father to four kids. It is just our opinion of course, but we think it’s not right to defame a person’s good name after his passing. We hope Abigail Disney will understand this too.

Again, we want to express our deepest condolences to the late Kobe Bryant’s family. Stay strong! Our prayers are with Vanessa Bryant and her kids at this devastating period.
