*Vanessa Bryant has responded to an article claiming her late husband Kobe Bryant had cancer and endorsed CBD oil.
Bryan shared screenshots on Instagram of a fake People magazine article claiming the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation released a CBD oil and sending out free samples. Bryant noted that the article is a hoax and People was not involved with it.
“LIES! Don’t get SCAMMED. Kobe NEVER USED CBD. @people doesn’t have anything to do with this either. (Pay attention to the fake website link),” the caption said.
The article claims Kobe was a cancer victim but didn’t like to speak about his struggle with the disease. There’s even a quote from the NBA legend claiming he turned to CBD oil to ease his pain.

“My Gigi is INCREDIBLE and I truly appreciate your thoughtful letter. She loves you so much. I miss my baby girl and Kob-Kob so much, too. ♥️I will never understand why/how this tragedy could’ve happened to such beautiful, kind and amazing human beings. It still doesn’t seem real. Kob, we did it right. Gigi, you still make mommy proud. I love you!,” she wrote.
