Kobe Bryant’s Daughter, Gianna Maria Onore, 13, Also Killed in Helicopter Crash That Crashed Kobe

This keeps getting sadder. Kobe Bryant, 41, died earlier today in a helicopter crash. At the time, there were reports of four other unknown victims. Now, TMZ reports Bryant’s daughter, 13-year-old Gianna Maria Onore aka GiGi, was also on board.

Per TMZ:

We’re told they were on their way to the Mamba Academy for a basketball practice when the crash occurred. The Academy is in nearby Thousand Oaks.

So sad.

Bryant, from a lot of information out there, seems to have been a really great dad, putting all his attention on his kids.

CNN reported that Bryant was flying to the Mamba Sports Academy to coach his daughter.

Bryant called Gigi “Lil Mamba” and “Mambacita” and came across as any other doting, proud father, judging by his Instagram.

Such a tragic story.
