BREAKING: Kobe Bryant and 13-Year-old Daughter Dead in Tragic Helicopter Crash
Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant were two of the five people who lost their lives in the tragic accident. We still don’t know where the aircraft was headed to or who was the pilot.
According to TMZ, the Oscar winner and his daughter were allegedly headed to the Mamba Academy for a basketball practice, which is near the Thousand Oaks and Calabasas area in Los Angeles.
Earlier this month, the father-daughter duo went viral on social media after Bryant was caught "explaining" basketball to Gianna.
The basketball star played for the Lakers for 20 years and retired at the age of 39 in 2016.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Bryant is survived by his wife Vanessa Bryant, and three of their daughters—Natalie, Biank and baby Capri.
