Co-trustees of Kobe’s trust, Widow Vanessa and agent Rob Pelinka, are asking the court to modify the language to include their youngest daughter.
According to The Blast, the documents state that it was Kobe’s intention to provide for Vannessa and all of his children.
“The material purpose of the Trust is to provide a fund for Kobe’s wife and daughters of Kobe and Vanessa for their support, care, and maintenance and, at the same time, to provide protection for the Trust’s assets so that the assets will be available for the benefit of Kobe and Vanessa’s daughters, equally, upon Vanessa’s death,” the document states.

The last modification was added in 2017 after the birth of Bianka but before the birth of Capri. The co-trustees are pushing that the trust specifically grants the wishes of Kobe to include all children.
Currently, Vanessa and daughters, Natalia and Bianka can draw money from the trust. The document to add Capri to the trust clarifies that “this was not Kobe’s intent. Nor does it accomplish the primary and material purpose of the Trust – to provide for Vanessa and all his children with Vanessa after his death.”
