Tom Brady: Kobe was 'the real-life superhero our world needs'

  Tom Brady: Kobe was 'the real-life superhero our world needs' To Tom Brady, Kobe Bryant was a superhero. The New England Patriots quarterback shared a reflective statement about Bryant on Tuesday, praising the Los Angeles Lakers legend's values on and off the court. "The world we live in is teaching EVERYONE to fear, to worry, to shame, or to give up," Brady wrote in a five-paragraph message posted to Twitter. "And that's the opposite of what Kobe stood for.

He pushed others to find that same confidence. He was the real-life superhero our world needs.

Law enforcement agencies, particularly in Los Angeles, have struggled over the years with the unauthorized use of evidence involving celebrities.

Valdez said he was “unaware of any complaint.”

The other victims were Christina Mauser; Payton and Sarah Chester; John, Keri and Alyssa Altobelli; and pilot Ara Zobayan.

Attorneys for Vanessa Bryant filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company that operated the helicopter.
