Vanessa Bryant, widow of late Basketball icon Kobe Bryant, has taken steps to create a sports and entertainment empire enabling Kobe’s legacy to continue.
Vanessa, who submitted documents earlier this month, is said to have filed to trademark “KB24” for digital collectible items, websites, training camps, broadcasting platforms, podcasts, TV shows, movies, documentaries and music … as well as sports cards, food/drink containers and t-shirts.
The move comes six months after she severed ties with longtime sneaker and clothing partner, Nike over money issues.
Also in March, Vanessa Bryant filed for trademarking of the name Mamba and Mambacita, with the aim of using it for clothes and sneakers.
Other trademarks that Vanessa and Kobe’s company have since Lakers’ legend tragic passing include “Mamba Sports Academy,” “Mambacita,” “Lady Mambas,” “Lil Mambas” and more.
Meanwhile, Vanessa Bryant and others are suing LA County for emotional distress over leaked photos of the helicopter crash that killed her husband, daughter and seven others.
