Vanessa Bryant has finally opened up about the recent controversy surrounding rapper Meek Mill and his reference to Los Angeles Lakers icon Kobe Bryant. It’s safe to say that she’s not very happy.
The widow of the great Lakers was offended by the rapper’s choice of words in his recent song. In the leaked song titled “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe),” the rapper referenced the tragic death of the five-time NBA champion, and Vanessa believes his bar is “extremely disrespectful“.
The 38-year-old took to Instagram to express her anger at Mill’s line about the former Lakers star and criticized the rapper.
“Dear @meekmill, I find this line extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period. I’m not familiar with your music, but I think you can do better than this, ”Vanessa posted in her IG Stories. “If you’re a fan that’s fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact. “

Vanessa Bryant is right here.
Even if we give Mill the benefit of the doubt, it’s hard to argue against Kobe Bryant’s wife. Even if you say he was just bowing to the Lakers legend with the name removed, it’s probably not the best idea to refer to someone’s tragic death in a line over someone you’re sleeping with.
Here’s how the Meek Mill bar goes on “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe)”:
“This bitch that I’m fucking always tells me that she loves, but that she never showed me,” says Mill’s line.
For what it’s worth, after Vanessa posted the IG story, Mill apparently tweeted in response.
I’m going to go back wild in this shit … fucking feelings!
