According to TMZ Sports, Kobe Bryant‘s daughters have just been appointed new guardians to represent their interests in their father’s trust.

According to new legal docs, Erika Williams has been appointed guardian ad litem for Natalia and Bianka Bryant, and James Summers is representing Kobe’s youngest daughter, Capri. Vanessa Bryant and Kobe’s former agent Rob Pelinka, who are the co-trustees of Kobe’s trust, must now pay any expenses for Erika and James’ roles as guardians, using money from the trust.

Vanessa filed the documents on Friday, asking a judge to appoint the guardian ad litem for Bianka and Natalia, plus another one for little Capri. Bryant said she wanted to get her legal affairs in order ASAP because of uncertainty surrounding the court system due to the coronavirus pandemic and potential government shutdowns.

Prayers to the family as they deal with life after their losses.
