The Bryant Family and Taylor Swift: A Continued Display of Mutual Support.
Taylor Swift and the Bryant family maintain a reciprocal show of support for each other. Recently, Swift was seen wearing a necklace featuring a Kobe Bryant quote, ‘Bet on yourself.’ Fans noticed the accessory, which reportedly stems from a collaboration with the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation, a nonprofit associated with Bryant’s estate.
Vanessa Bryant, widow of Kobe Bryant, acknowledged Swift’s tribute. In a heartening Instagram story shared on January 12, Vanessa posted a photo of Swift wearing the necklace with a note expressing love.
This touching interaction follows a previous wholesome moment between the ‘Bad Blood’ singer and Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s daughters. During one of Swift’s LA shows in August 2023, she embraced Bianka, the Bryant’s daughter, at SoFi Stadium.
Kobe Bryant, known as a proud ‘girl dad,’ consistently showed support for Swift. In a 2019 interview with Newsweek, he recognized Swift’s sustained excellence, stating, ‘Taylor’s been at the top of her game for a very, very long time. It’s unbelievable to be able to pull that off over and over.’
The mutual admiration was further showcased in 2015 when the ‘Black Mamba’ presented Swift with a banner commemorating her 16 sold-out concerts at concerts at Crypto.com Arena, formerly known as Staples Center.
