Apart from a few events in tribute to Kobe Bryant, Vanessa shows very little outside: a source tells the American magazine E! News that the young woman prefers to focus on her daughters. She prefers “to take it slow for now” and very often declines the many invitations she receives from celebrities for social events.

Kobe was the only man in her family. life (…) For the moment, in order to preserve her sanity and her well-being, she tries to lead a life as discreet as possible. ” declares this same source.
