Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department after pictures of her late husband and daughter at the crash site were shared by deputies, it's claimed

Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa is suing the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department over the sharing of "unauthorised" photos of the scene of his death, it's claimed.

The LA Lakers player tragically died in a helicopter crash in California on January 26 which killed eight other people, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianni.

Vanessa alleges that shortly after the crash Sheriff Alex Villanueva personally assured her that deputies were securing the crash site to ensure her privacy, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The lawsuit allegedly says that "no fewer than 8 sheriff's deputies at the crash site, pulled out their personal cell phones and snapped photos of the dead children, parents and coaches.
