Los Angeles Police Insists Vanessa Bryant Must Submit to Psychiatric Examination Following Lawsuit

Complex is reporting that the Los Angeles County wants Vanessa Bryant and other family members to submit to psychiatric examinations as part of the ongoing court process centered on a lawsuit filed last year.

Per the outlet, this comes amid a recent court filing, in which the county asked for Vanessa and other family members to submit to the exams. Their argument is that any emotional distress argued in the lawsuit is due to the fatal January 2020 helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and 13-year-old daughter Gianna, as well as other passengers.

Complex adds:

Put another way, the county is arguing that the crash is the sole cause of distress, not by county workers or crash scene photos. In the related legal docs, the county argues that such independent medical examinations are “necessary” to determine the “existence, extent, and nature” of alleged emotional distress.

And addressing this in a statement, the attorneys representing Vanessa and other plaintiffs’ families said they are fighting the county’s attempt at requiring the exams:

“Plaintiffs cannot claim that they are suffering from ongoing depression, anxiety, and severe emotional distress and then balk at having to support their claims.”

We can’t wait to see how it pans out.
