PEOPLE’s Kobe & Wife Helicopter Pact Must’ve Started In 2018

People magazine wants you to believe Kobe and his wife had a pact that they wouldn’t get on helicopters together

I saw a variation of this Kobe Bryant-Vanessa Bryant ‘No helicopter together’ pact headline on Facebook and it stopped me in my tracks. I’ve followed Vanessa Bryant’s Instagram before and I was pretty sure I’d seen these two helicoptering around L.A. here and there. None of this matters at this point with the guy and his daughter dead, but PEOPLE might want to have one of their 22-year-old interns scroll through Vanessa’s Instagram. I’d hate to ruin a story for them. Maybe the pact started in late 2017 after his retirement night when Vanessa was on their chopper.

Let’s see what PEOPLE had to say about this pact:

Kobe Bryant used helicopters to get around Los Angeles, but he and his wife Vanessa Bryant made a point not to fly together.

“He and Vanessa had a deal that they would never fly on a helicopter together,” a source tells PEOPLE of the couple, who tied the knot in 2001.

Cool story. Now tell us when that pact started.
