Kobe Bryant & Daughter Gigi Buried In Private Funeral
According to a new report, Kobe Bryant and daughter Gigi Bryant have been laid to rest – two weeks after the tragic helicopter crash that claimed their lives.
ET has shared that the NBA legend and Gigi – a budding basketball talent – were buried last Friday following a private funeral in Corona Del Mar, California.
A source told the publication:
“Vanessa [Bryant] and the family wanted a private service to mourn their loss. The ceremony was extremely hard for everyone as it’s still hard for them to grasp they lost two beautiful souls.”
As well as wife Vanessa, the LA Laker star is survived by the couple’s three other children Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months.
News of the private goodbye comes days after a public memorial at the Staples Center was announced for February 24th.
It also comes a day after Vanessa, Kobe’s wife of 19-years, grieved publicly for her husband and daughter:
Our thoughts and prayers remain with The Bryants and the families of the other victims of the crash.
