Report: Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna have been laid to rest in a private funeral
LOS ANGELES — Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant have been laid to rest during a private funeral service, according to ET.
Bryant was killed when the helicopter carrying him, his daughter and seven others crashed into a mountainside in Calabasas, California, while flying to a girls basketball tournament at his Mamba Sports Academy on January 26.
The report says a private funeral service was held in Corona Del Mar, California, on February 7.
A source told ET, “Vanessa 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.”
Vanessa Bryant announced last week that a “celebration of life” memorial will be held on Feb. 24 at the Staples Center to honor her late husband and 13-year-old Gianna.
