Vanessa Bryant Surprises Kobe Bryant’s Sister Sharia Washington with a New Tesla

“We love you!!!” Bryant wrote about Sharia Washington. “Tesla Tunnel, here she comes!! Vegas to Cali.”

Kobe Bryant’s older sister Sharia Washington received a sweet surprise from her sister-in-law Vanessa Bryant.

That surprise was a brand new white Tesla with a bright red bow placed on the center of the hood. 38-year-old Bryant shared the exciting moment on Instagram on Thursday.

“Surprise @shariawash! We love you!!!” Bryant shared. “Tesla Tunnel, here she comes!! Vegas to Cali.”

Washington, who was at a loss for words, broke down in tears as she approached the car.

“I’m done,” Washington said. “I can’t take it, I can’t take it.”


Bryant wiped a tear off her sister-in-law’s face as the family members shared the precious occasion. With tears still dripping down her cheeks, Washington, 45, entered the car filled with joy.

“Oh my God… I need to do the whole tutorial,” Washington said as she sat in the driver’s seat for the first time.

Bryant shared an inside look of Washington exploring her new ride in another post featuring a string of videos.

“Is that my bestie in a Tessie?” Bryant said in a video, quoting Saweetie’s and Doja Cat’s popular song “Best Friend.”

Celebrities, friends and fans shared the excitement on Bryant’s post.

“Both beautiful, inside & out!!“ one person wrote.

“I’m crying with her! @vanessabryant this pulled at all the heart strings!” another person shared.

@kobebryant is looking down smiling at this,” another person wrote.

Family has been front and center for Bryant following the tragic passing of her late husband Kobe and their 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant, who lost their lives among seven others in a devastating helicopter crash in California on Jan. 26, 2020.

Bryant told PEOPLE in March that her “strong, resilient, respectful and kind” daughters Natalia, 18, Bianka, 4, and Capri, 1, have tremendously helped her in navigating her journey with grief.
