Shock As Kobe Bryant’s 13 Year-Old Daughter Also Dies In Helicopter Crash


Kobe Bryant’s daughter is confirmed to have died in the helicopter crash that claimed the life of her father.

Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, 13, also known as GiGi, was also onboard the private helicopter when it went down on Sunday in Calabasas, reps for the former basketball player told TMZ.

It is believed that the helicopter was headed to a travel basketball game for Gianna and that the other passengers were another player and their parent.

Gigi was a talented youth basketball player who regularly attended LA Lakers games with her father.

Emergency personnel responded but no one on board survived. Five people are confirmed dead, TMZ reported. The outlet said that Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant — with whom he shares all four children — was not onboard.

Bryant is survived by Vanessa, 37, and their daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months.
