You may recall that Bryant was featured on the remix of Destiny’s Child hit “Say My Name” and appeared in their music video for “Bug A Boo” in 1999.

We previously reported…  Bryant’s widow made her first comments since the helicopter crash that killed the basketball star and one of their daughters on Sunday.

In a post on Instagram with a family photo, Vanessa said she was “completely devastated” and noted that the family is “completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe – the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna – a loving, thoughtful, and wonderful daughter, and amazing sister to Natalia, Bianka, and Capri.”

She added: “I wish they were here with us forever. They were our beautiful blessings taken from us too soon. I’m not sure what our lives hold beyond today, and it’s impossible to imagine life without them.”
