Recently, NBA superstar Kobe Bryant has passed away along with his daughter Gianna on January 27 in a helicopter crash.
KAMI learned that for the first time since the crash, 65-year-old retired NBA legend Joe Bryant was seen in public.
In a report by the DailyMail UK (authored by Ryan Parry and Katy Forrester), Joe was seen stepping out of their house in Las Vegas after a giant bouquet of yellow flowers were sent to them.
Their neighbors shared that Kobe’s parents, Joe and Pamela, are grieving privately after the passing of their son and granddaughter.
“It's a private, awful moment, losing their son and grand-daughter, it's just horrific. I was talking to Joe briefly the day before, we were out for a walk, it was all happy and good and talking about the gorgeous weather and then it switched in 24 hours where their lives were turned upside down,” the neighbor said.
Meanwhile, Kobe’s former coach and Joe’s best friend, Wayne Slappy, shared that the Bryant family is struggling to fill the void that Kobe and Gianna left behind.
“Can you imagine a black hole? It's empty, how do you fill it? They're a close-knit family. He was 41-years-old, and then his daughter dies in an accident with him too,” Slappy said.
“His family are going to miss him more than you can begin to imagine. I know NBA players whose kids can't stand them, they never spent any time with them. That ain't Kobe.
“He grew up with his family loving each other. He was doing the same thing his father did for him, for his daughters, to the best of his ability,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, Kobe and Gianna attended a morning mass before the helicopter crash happened that took their lives.
Kobe Bryant or the Black Mamba used to be the star player of the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA. He was married to Vanessa Bryant for about 20 years and they had four beautiful daughters.
