CALIFORNIA – Kobe Bryant’s family is requesting privacy following the death of the NBA star and his daughter, saying inaccurate reports are only adding to the pain for his grieving loved ones.

Bryant, his daughter, Gianna, and seven others died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

Gianna, 13, her teammates and their parents, their basketball coach and the pilot were headed to a game last Sunday when the helicopter crashed into a hillside and killed all nine people aboard.

The “unnamed sources and blind quotes” cited by the media following their deaths are not coming from the family, Molly Carter, president of Kobe Inc., said in a statement delivered to news outlets.

“To this point, no one has been authorised to speak on behalf of the family regarding any personal details surrounding Sunday’s tragedy, including stories related to the family’s previous air travel decisions,” Carter said. “We ask members of the media for respect and responsible judgment during this difficult time. These inaccurate reports only add unnecessary pain to a grieving family.” (CNN)
