According to a report in the Guardian, Vanessa Bryant won $16 million in her lawsuit against Los Angeles County on August 24. The jury decided unanimously to give her the money. Here’s a quick look at how much Vanessa will be worth in 2022.
Vanessa and Christopher Chester sued Los Angeles County over some photos that were leaked from the site of Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crash. In 2022, Vanessa Bryant’s net worth will be $16 million because she won a lawsuit against Los Angeles County over photos of Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crash. On January 26, 2020, the NBA legend and his daughter, Gianna Bryant, both died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Christopher, who is also a plaintiff in the case, lost his wife, Sarah, and their 13-year-old daughter, Payton, in the terrible helicopter crash.
The Celebrity Net Worth website says that in 2022, the American philanthropist Vanessa’s net worth will be around $600 million. The International Business Times said in a report from 202 that Vanessa and Kobe did not have a prenuptial agreement. In a separate report, however, MarketWatch said that the philanthropist is in charge of the Bryant estate. Back in 2011, ten years after they got married, Vanessa asked Kobe to end their marriage. At the time, a report from the Celebrity Net Worth website said that the basketball legend was worth around $200 million. But two years after the divorce was filed, the couple got back together and the divorce was dropped.
Fox News says that Vanessa and Chris sued the county of Los Angeles because “close-up photos” of the terrible helicopter crash site were shared on multiple devices.
On Wednesday, August 10, the case went to court. After 14 days in court, the jury agreed with the plaintiff and told the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) to pay Vanessa $10 million and co-plaintiff Christopher $9 million in damages. In addition, the jury told the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) to give each of the plaintiffs, Christopher and Vanessa, $6 million. People said that 40-year-old Vanessa could be seen crying in court after the jury’s decision was made public. Once the decision was made public, she reportedly gave hugs to her lawyer, Luis Li, and her co-plaintiff, Chris. After the verdict was made public, the mother of four went on Instagram to remember her late husband and daughter.

In 2001, Vanessa and Kobe got married. At the time, Kobe’s parents, agent, and sisters reportedly turned down their invitations to their wedding. According to rumors, they didn’t go to Vanessa’s wedding because she was only 19 years old and still in high school at the time. But when she had her first child in 2003, things changed for the better. Together, Kobe and Vanessa had four kids. Natalia Diamante Bryant, who is 19 years old, is their eldest daughter.
