Tamar Braxton, Her Sister, Toni Braxton, And Her Boyfriend, David Adefeso, Reach Out To Kobe Bryant's Wife, Vanessa, With Moving Messages
A long list of celebrities, including Tamar Braxton, her sister, Toni Braxton, and her boyfriend, David Adefeso, have taken to social media to pay tribute to the gifted basketball player Kobe Bryant who sadly died in a helicopter crash on Sunday morning alongside his beloved 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.
Gianna, lovingly known as GiGi, passed away after the helicopter crash that was transporting them to the Mamba Academy for a basketball event.
Toni said she is at a loss for words in a message the read: "Praying for these two, and Vanessa and the girls...for the rest of the victims. I can’t put words together; I am a mess. I can only imagine what The Bryants are going through. RIP Kobe and Gianna."
Tamar had the following to say about the heartbreaking situation: "#nowords prayers are going up hard for u Vanessa."
David, a man of many words, eloquently stated: "It was the 33,643-lifetime points, the 5 NBA titles, the 2 Olympic gold medals, the Hollywood career, and the transcendence onto the World stage as a true global celebrity. But it was also the example of hard work and dedicated passion he set for all those aspiring to something greater; it was the role model he showed young professional athletes on how they can successfully navigate the dilemma of making the most money they likely ever would at the time they are least capable of handling it. It was also the spotlight he shined on and support he gave to our young female athletes, the love and attention he showed children through those wonderful storybooks and the genuine lifetime growth he demonstrated, through often great adversity, both professionally and personally. He was a father of 4, a modern-day cultural icon and a symbol of what many aspire to. @vanessabryant, words can never be enough to describe the deep sorrow you must feel at the loss of your ever-loving @kobebryant and you beautiful cherry, Gianna. The only assurance you have is that they are in a much better place than here, and our God has a reason which may yet be fully revealed. #ripkobebryantandgianna"
Many fans stepped up to pray for Kobe's wife, Vanessa. One person said: "Prayers up for Vanessa and the Bryant family my condolences 🙏🙏🙏."
Another commenter stated: "Well said!!! Thank you for those all so truthful words!!! Prayers to the entire family.☹️☹️☹️"

Kobe was a real legend.
