Kobe Bryant has died at age 41, officials confirmed to Variety. The former NBA star was traveling in his private helicopter with at least four other people, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, when it went down in Calabasas, CA, on Sunday. The aircraft reportedly crashed "amid foggy conditions into a hillside near an intersection in area north of Malibu State Park" before a small brush fire erupted. There were no survivors.

Kobe is survived by his wife, Vanessa, and their three other daughters, Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, who was born in June 2019.
