Kobe Bryant & Daughter Gianna Bryant Laid To Rest With Private Funeral

Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Bryant have been laid to rest, according to reports. The NBA legend and his 13-year-old daughter were said to have been buried with a private funeral in Los Angeles.

A public memorial will take place on February 24th at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

As previously reported, on January 26th, the pair died in a helicopter crash along with passengers Christina Mauser, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester and pilot Ara Zobayan.

Yesterday (Feb. 10th), Kobe Bryant’s wife and Gianna Bryant’s mother Vanessa Bryant shared an emotional message about how it is hard for her to conceive that they are both gone.

I’ve been reluctant to put my feelings into words. My brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are gone. I can’t process both at the same time. It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me. It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be here for my 3 daughters. Mad I’m not with Kobe and Gigi but thankful I’m here with Natalia, Bianka and Capri. I know what I’m feeling is normal. It’s part of the grieving process. I just wanted to share in case there’s anyone out there that’s experienced a loss like this. God I wish they were here and this nightmare would be over. Praying for all of the victims of this horrible tragedy. Please continue to pray for all.

The cause of the crash is still unknown, as the helicopter was not equipped with a black box.

The Lakers held a tribute to Kobe before playing against the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center on January 30th.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all families effected.
