Vanessa recently hit the tabloids after she filed a lawsuit that suggested the flight should have never been allowed to take off given the heavy fog on the day of the tragic crash.
According to new publicationTMZ, Kobe's wife believes that the aircraft should have never been placed in danger and the pilot was flying recklessly.
The lawsuit alleges that Island Express were only allowed to fly under certain visual flight rules.
It would seem the the weather conditions in the area on the day of crash would not meet regulations, meaning the flight should have been grounded.
The fog was low and it is believed that the helicopter would have flown in conditions which would have obscured the pilot's vision shortly before it went down.
