The NBA star’s private helicopter crashed in Calabasas, TMZ sports confirmed.

And by his second season, Kobe had been named an All-Star and he was branded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

But he stayed busy, focusing on many other career pursuits – alongside raising his family.

The pair were both just 17-years-old but quickly fell in love – becoming engaged after only six months of dating. They were married in 2001, and their first daughter arrived in 2003.

Their eldest was Natalia, who’s 17, followed by Gianna, followed by Bianka, aged 3, and Capri, aged just 7 months.

But tragically on Sunday morning, his private helicopter went down and a “fire broke out.”

And there were 9 bodies found at the scene. Reports confirmed that his wife, Vanessa Bryant, was not among those on board.

TMZ Sports reported that Gianna, aged thirteen, had also tragically died in the crash. It is thought that the father and daughter were on their way to the Mamba Academy for basketball practice, nearby Thousand Oaks.

In fact, from childhood, Gianna would participate in the team warm-ups and she has been proving her abilities as a skilled player over the last few years.

It is completely unbearable to imagine.

And a lot of artists have put together their talents to remember the late Kobe and Gianna Bryant.

And many find peace from his death by drawing it out on a piece of paper.
