Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant has been awarded $1.5 million in attorney’s fees following a legal battle with the former president of Kobe Inc. over her late husband’s investment in the sports drink company, BodyArmor. Recall that the battle all started back in 2019, six months before Kobe’s death, when Molly Carter, the president of Kobe Inc., claimed late Kobe promised her a cut of the earnings he received from his BodyArmor investment.
After his demise, Molly filed a lawsuit, but Vanessa immediately made a counterclaim accusing her of violating the duty of loyalty and non-disparagement clause she signed as part of her employment contract.
Vanessa eventually emerged victorious in the original lawsuit and her counterclaim after the case was taken to arbitration, and she won $1.5 million in attorney’s fees.
