The Daily Mail has confirmed that Kobe Bryant and daughter, Gianna, died in a helicopter crash on Sunday morning in Calabasas, CA.

TMZ initially reported the incident but after confirmations have taken place, the worst imaginable situation has been revealed.

I’m in shock right now. Lebron just passed his scoring record last night and took the time to thank Kobe. Now this. This gives me chills man. I’m heartbroken for his family. May God look down on his wife and children.

Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Sunday morning.

The 41-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star’s death was first confirmed by TMZ.
