巨星殞落!Kobe曾陷危機低潮 靠信仰走過人生低谷

美國職籃NBA巨星柯比布萊恩(Kobe Bryant)和女兒搭乘私人直升機,不幸失事身亡,享年41歲,震驚全球!各界表達哀悼,球迷充滿震驚與不捨。 Kobe是虔誠的天主教徒,靠著信仰度過了自己人生,和家庭生活中的艱難時期。

綜合媒體報導,1999年21歲的Kobe因為拍攝MV,結識當年17歲的舞者凡妮莎(Vanessa),二人一見鍾情。凡妮莎出身不好,一度被Kobe父母嫌棄,她配不起兒子,反對二人交往。不過,Kobe和凡妮莎愛得更深,於2000年5月訂婚,2001年4月正式結婚,婚後生下四個孩子。

2003年7月Kobe入住鷹郡當地酒店,被一名17歲的酒店女員工指控性侵,讓Kobe形象一落千丈。他承認與女員工發生性關係,但強調絕不是「性侵」,Kobe因此失去了廣告贊助商,並面臨刑事指控,案件最終達成和解被撤銷。

Kobe在接受《GQ雜誌》專訪時指出:「當時我跟神父說:『真正幫助我的一件事是,我是天主教徒,我從天主教徒長大成人,我的孩子們也是天主教徒。』」神父指引他「放手吧,讓這一切過去。神不會給你無法承受的考驗,現在都在祂手中了。面對無法掌控的事情,就放手吧。」這是Kobe人生的轉折點。

Kobe的妻子曾2011年提出離婚,但Kobe不放棄婚姻。兩年後,他的妻子撤回了離婚申請。他說「我不會說我們的婚姻是完美的。」Kobe表示「我們仍在戰鬥,就像每對已婚夫婦一樣。但是,我全力以赴。」後來2人決定在2013年復合,在2016年、2019年又生了2個女兒。

歌手克莉斯汀娜.巴列絲特蘿(Cristina Ballestero)得知噩耗後感到相當不捨,她在IG
發文,回憶Kobe「他最鼓舞人心的特質是他決定轉向對上帝的信仰,接受上帝的憐憫,並在遺憾的事件後成為更好的人。」

I wanna tell a story about the time I met Kobe Bryant. I was sitting in the very back of Holy Family Cathedral in Orange, CA, on a WEEKDAY mass. At the time I was very into wearing veils and on this particular day I had a scarf I used as veil. Right as mass begins I see a huge shadow in my right peripheral vision and hear a decently loud creak from probably a big man. I double took to see… it was KOBE BRYANT IN THE SAME PEW AS ME ON THE OTHER END! I just went about my normal praying and singing as usual cause he like all of us came to pray. Thank God I had the veil so I could stay focused on Jesus not this insanely talented Basketball player my whole family has looked up to and watched our whole lives. As we went up to communion, he waited for me to go. If you grew up in the Catholic Church, you understand this is a respectful thing men do in church as a sign of respect to women. He said I have a beautiful voice. I said thank you and went up to communion. @marydallal @mandymissyturkey and a couple other friends saw him standing behind me going to receive Jesus. And we talked about it after mass and freaked out together. It was such a cool experience to receive Jesus right before him, and also, to walk up to receive Jesus together. It was also cool to see him come for a weekday mass. He said in his GQ interview how a Catholic Priest helped him through the tough time he went through in the media. He also talks about how his faith is important. His most inspiring trait was his decision to turn to his faith in God and receive God’s mercy and to be a better man after a regretful decision. Him and his wife do so much great work with their foundation. I’m heartbroken at the news of his death, alongside his daughter Gianna. My prayers go out to his Family, friends and loved ones. Eternal rest grant unto him, and her oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they Rest In Peace, Amen. We love you Kobe & Gianna. 💔 . . . . #kobebryant
