Kobe Bryant’s heartbroken father has been seen for the first time since losing the NBA legend, 41, and his 13-year-old granddaughter Gigi in a helicopter crash.

Joe Bryant, 65, a retired NBA star, was pictured stepping out of the Las Vegas home he shares with Kobe’s mother, Pamela, after a bouquet of flowers was delivered on Monday afternoon.

His outing comes after neighbors told DailyMail.com that Joe and Pamela’s lives have been turned ‘upside down’ because of the tragedy.

‘I talked to them twice yesterday and took over food and a card, and briefly today, they are just devastated, as you can imagine,’ the neighbor said, adding: ‘It’s a private, awful moment, losing their son and grand-daughter, it’s just horrific. I was talking to Joe briefly the day before, we were out for a walk, it was all happy and good and talking about the gorgeous weather and then it switched in 24 hours where their lives were turned upside down.’

The neighbor said Joe and Pamela are ‘very close’ to their daughters Sharia and Shaya who live in Las Vegas and the family has been rallying together, adding: ‘They just need their peace, it’s been nonstop since yesterday.

‘They were here this morning and yesterday. It’s a sensitive time, I can’t even imagine what they’re going through. They are lovely, kind, decent people.’

This comes after Kobe’s former coach and best friend of his father Joe, Wayne Slappy, told DailyMail.com that the NBA star’s family is struggling to deal with a ‘black hole’ left by his death and have been left feeling empty.

‘Can you imagine a black hole? It’s empty, how do you fill it? They’re a close-knit family. He was 41-years-old, and then his daughter dies in an accident with him too,’ the 67-year-old basketball coach said.

He added: ‘His family are going to miss him more than you can begin to imagine. I know NBA players whose kids can’t stand them, they never spent any time with them. That ain’t Kobe. 

‘He grew up with his family loving each other. He was doing the same thing his father did for him, for his daughters, to the best of his ability.’ 

Kobe Bryant died along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others when his chopper crashed in Calabasas, about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles on Sunday.

The NBA legend leaves behind wife Vanessa, daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, three, seven-month-old Capri, and his parents and sisters Sharia and Shaya.

US President, Donald Trump, wanted his daughter, Ivanka Trump, as his vice-presidential running mate during the 2016 election, a report by The Washington Post published on Monday, September 28, alleges.

According to the Washington Post, in an upcoming book by former Trump deputy campaign chair Rick Gates, “Wicked Game,” that will be published October 13, during discussions about selecting a running mate, then-Republican presidential candidate Trump said to a group of top campaign aides, “I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?”

“She’s bright, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, and the people would love her!,” he added, according to the Post.

According to the paper, then-presidential candidate Trump was so keen to the idea of Ivanka as a vice-presidential pick and “cool to other options, including then-Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, that his team polled the idea twice,”

Ivanka told her father it was not a good idea leading Trump to chose Pence after he gave a “vicious and extended monologue” about former President Bill Clinton and Trump’s 2016 rival Hillary Clinton at a breakfast event.

Ivanka, serves as a senior adviser to her father in the White House and has been a prominent fixture during her father’s political career.

Trump, has often praised what he sees as his daughter’s political talent, suggesting in August that his daughter would be a better presidential candidate than California Sen. Kamala Harris, calling the Democratic vice presidential nominee “incompetent.”

“I want to see the first woman president also, but I don’t want to see a woman president get in to that position the way she’d do it, and she’s not competent, she’s not competent,” he said during a rally in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

“They’re all saying, ‘We want Ivanka.’ I don’t blame you.”

John Mahama Sprays Money On The Massive Crowd As He Tours Berekum | WATCH

Published

The NDC Presidential candidate John Dramani Mahama in the course of his campaign tour has visited Berekum in the Bono Region today 28th September 2020.

John Mahama in the middle of his street cavalcade pulled wads of cash from his car and gave it to some of the crowded party adherents on the streets.

The streets of Berekum was packed as the Mahama passed through to a durbar ground where he would meet the Berekum Traditional council.

The National Democratic Congress-NDC led by its aspirant has put on their full armor of promises and ‘Politricks’ so much to win back the trust of the electorates to vote for them come December 7th, 2020.

It was not long ago that John Mahama addressing people during his tour of Kpando in the Volta Region, stated that his government will legalize the commercial operation of motorbikes (Okada) when voted into power in 2021.

“Our law says okada is illegal, but it is a reality it has come to stay and you can’t stop it. So, I say when we come into the office, we legalize it but we will regulate it.”

Anyone interest in pursuing an okada business will be trained and also educated to obey all needed traffic regulations, John Mahama stated.

Mahama again speaking on Woezor TV, said NDC if voted into power will build more mortuaries in Zongo Communities – a campaign promise that has landed him in serious moments in the hands of Ghanaians.

Graduating from making futile assurances to voters to spraying bundles of cash on teeming NDC supporters at Bono Region has generated an uproar. It’s the topic on the discussion table on social media now.
