– Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were buried last week near
their family home in Newport Beach, California, in a private ceremony,
according to death certificates.

A death certificate for the basketball legend, who was
killed in a helicopter crash outside Los Angeles on January 26 along with his
daughter and seven others, states that he was buried last Friday at Pacific
View Memorial Park in Corona del Mar, US media reported.

A memorial service for Bryant and Gianna is planned February
24 at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles which can hold 20,000 people.

The Center, also the home of the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings and
venue for concerts and events such as the recent Grammy Awards, has hosted
memorials for recording artists Michael Jackson and Nipsey Hussle.

Byrant’s wife Vanessa on Monday took to Instagram to express
her grief saying “my brain refuses to accept that both Kobe and Gigi are

“It’s like I’m trying to process Kobe being gone but my
body refuses to accept my Gigi will never come back to me,” she added.

“It feels wrong. Why should I be able to wake up
another day when my baby girl isn’t being able to have that opportunity?! I’m
so mad. She had so much life to live. Then I realize I need to be strong and be
here for my 3 daughters.”

Bryant had an iconic 20-year career playing with the Los
Angeles Lakers.
