Kobe Bryant’s wife Venessa and actress Evan Rachel Wood attack each other after she called her husband a rapist on the day Cobe died from a tragic helicopter crash.
Just after waiting for a year following the deaths of NBA player and his daughter Gigi, Kobe Bryant‘s widow has responded to an old tweet that the “Westworld” star wrote.
On Saturday she attacked actress Evan Rachel Wood who made accusations to Marilyn Manson of sexual assault for calling her late husband Kobe Bryant a “rapist” on the day of his death.
Hours after news broke of the basketball legend’s tragic death in a helicopter crash with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others on January 26, 2020, the star of the series “Westworld “Tweeted: – ” What has happened is tragic. I am heartbroken for Kobe’s family. He was a sports hero. He was also a rapist. And all these truths can exist.
She replied through her Instagram page by saying: “Your tweet is false, insensitive, defamatory and slanderous. It’s vile and disturbing, to say the least, ”the NBA player’s widow wrote about a screenshot of the original tweet. “Behavior like this is part of the reason innocent black men go to jail for crimes they didn’t commit. An accusation does not make anyone guilty. ”
“You do not know the facts of the case,” added the woman, who also sent the same message to film producer Abigail Disney, who tweeted at the time: “The man was a rapist.”
We can recall back lately, Kobe was charged with sexual assault in 2003 by a 19-year-old hotel employee in Colorado. Prosecutors dropped the charges after she refused and refused to testify. He later filed a civil case that was settled out of court in 2005.
At first Bryant denied having had sexual relations with the complainant. Sometime later, when they informed him that there were DNA tests that confirmed the contact, he admitted the fact, although he assured that it ” was consensual.”
When the case became public, Bryant posted a $ 25,000 bond to return to Los Angeles and held a press conference to give his side of the story.
He did it together with his lawyers and his wife, who had given birth to the couple’s first daughter, Natalia. “I did not force her to do anything against her will, I am innocent, ” he said in that meeting before the media that took place at the Staples Center, the home of the Lakers.
” I am furious with myself for having made the mistake of adultery,” he added, making it clear that what really hurt him was having broken the engagement with his wife.
