Guardian Ad Litem Appointed for Daughters
3/23/2020 6:14 PM PT
Kobe Bryant‘s daughters have just been appointed new guardians to represent their interests in their father’s trust … TMZ Sports has learned.
According to new legal docs … Erika Williams has been appointed guardian ad litem for Natalia and Bianka Bryant, and James Summers is repping for Kobe’s youngest daughter, Capri.
Vanessa Bryant and Kobe’s former agent Rob Pelinka, who are the co-trustees of Kobe’s trust, have been instructed to pay any expenses for Erika and James’ roles as guardians, using money from the trust … according to the docs.
As we first reported … Vanessa filed docs Friday asking a judge to appoint the guardian ad litem for Bianka and Natalia, plus another one for Capri. Vanessa said she wanted to get her legal affairs in order ASAP because of uncertainty surrounding the court system due to coronavirus pandemic and potential government shutdowns.
Remember … Vanessa also filed other legal docs asking the judge to amend Kobe’s trust to include Capri, who was born after Kobe last amended it. A judge will handle that at a later date.
