According to TMZ, Kobe Bryant has died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. The 41-year-old Lakers Legend and four other passengers were with him on board at the time of the crash. There were no survivors.
Some of the false reports told Kobe’s four daughters were on the helicopter. But later they immediately deleted their tweets. His daughters were NOT on board.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski confirms the heartbreaking news.
