A number of people have issues with the way Late Kobe Bryants Parents were treated at his Memorial yesterday, at staples center.
Kobe’s Memorial service tagged the #KobeFarewell was quiet an intensely emotional event where Vannessa and close friends got the chance to speak about their life experience fallen NBA legend and his daughter Gigi.
But two important people were noticeably missing from the stage – Kobe’s parents.
Kobe’s parents were seated in the second row of the audience, and off to the side – away from Vanessa and her daughters.
And many Socialites on social media are upset, believing and of the opinion that Kobe’s parents were being disrespected – relegated to the side and not given a chance to speak at their only son’s memorial.
Many fans of the NBA STAR on Twitter to brutally accusing Vanessa of intentionally not making a concerted effort to mend things and show her husband’s parents some “respect.”
The accusations leveled up against Vannessa are presently not supported, however, by evidence. The fans don’t know what Vanessa’s relationship is with Kobe’s parents.
According to reports, it wasn’t just Kobe’s parent’s who didn’t speak at the memorial service, Kobe’s sisters also did not speak.
Many socialites on twitter believe that it would have been more fitting for an immediate family member outside of Vanessa to speak at the memorial service since for them Kobe Bryant was not just a basketball legend, he was their son and/or brother.
The memorial service was emotional and well done, but there was clearly a giant elephant in the room.
