Earlier this week, in a shocking turn of events American superstar basketball player Kobe Bryant lost his life in an unfortunate helicopter crash. His daughter Gianna Bryant also passed away in the accident. All through the week, celebrities from all over the world have been expressing their grief over the death of the LA lakers legend and extending their love and prayers to the Bryant family. Kobe is survived by his wife Vanessa Bryant and three other daughters Natalia Bryant, Bianka Bryant and Capri Bryant.

Vanessa finally issued an official statement in what we can only imagine being the toughest time for the family. And the note is heartbreaking. She gracefully thanked the millions of people who’ve shown her family support and love during such a horrific time. She expressed that her family is devastated by their loss but was equally devastated for the families who lost their loved ones in the same crash. She also said there weren’t enough words to express words to describe their pain. She even said that she wished she could hug and kiss her husband and daughter and keep them forever. She also asked everyone to give them the respect and privacy they need during such trying times.

My girls and I want to thank the millions of people who’ve shown support and love during this horrific time. Thank you for all the prayers. We definitely need them. We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna — a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri. We are also devastated for the families who lost their loved ones on Sunday, and we share in their grief intimately. There aren’t enough words to describe our pain right now. I take comfort in knowing that Kobe and Gigi both knew that they were so deeply loved. We were so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives. I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them. But we wake up each day, trying to keep pushing because Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever. Thank you for sharing your joy, your grief and your support with us. We ask that you grant us the respect and privacy we will need to navigate this new reality. To honor our Team Mamba family, the Mamba Sports Foundation has set up the MambaOnThree Fund to help support the other families affected by this tragedy. To donate, please go to To further Kobe and Gianna’s legacy in youth sports, please visit Thank you so much for lifting us up in your prayers, and for loving Kobe, Gigi, Natalia, Bianka, Capri and me. #Mamba #Mambacita #GirlsDad #DaddysGirls #Family ❤️
