Lauren is still mourning her late partner Nipsey Hussle who was shot to death last year, but that hasn’t stopped the model and actress from lifting another woman in her time of grief.

Following the tragic death of Kobe and Gianna, Lauren reached out to Vanessa in a heartbreaking Instagram post. She shared several photos depicting the close bond shared by the father-daughter duo.

"Nip did it not just for the awards, but for the people. God allowed him to use this music to speak his truth"

"Heart is heavy. There are no words. Just real conversations with God," Lauren admitted in the caption. "Sending my heart to Vanessa and the Family."

Kobe and Gianna died on Sunday morning after being involved in a disastrous helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. The Los Angeles Lakers legend was 41 while his daughter was 13 years old.

The news sent shock waves across the world as fans and celebrities sent in their condolences to the Bryants and families of the other seven passengers who all perished in the accident.

Tributes and memorials popped up nearly everywhere, including the Staples Center, where Kobe led the Lakers to many victories during his time. Ironically, on Sunday evening, Lauren was present at the same venue to accept a posthumous Grammy award on behalf of Nipsey.

Nipsey, 33 at the time of his death, was shot and killed outside his L.A. clothing store on March 31, 2019. At the time, he and Lauren had been together for nearly six years and shared a now-three-year-old son, Kross.

Lauren was at the Grammys with a few of Nipsey’s family members to receive the rapper’s first Grammy in the Best Rap Performance category for "Racks in the Middle." Nipsey was nominated for three Grammys in all.

According to E! News, the 35-year-old also showed up at the Staples Center paying tribute to her late lover with a fashion accessory. Lauren’s necklace pendant featured a photo of Nipsey from the 2019 Grammy Awards.

As she received the honor on behalf of Nipsey, Lauren got emotional, saying:

"I speak on behalf of our family and in honor of Nip, who was a phenomenal vessel. Nip did it not just for the awards, but for the people. God allowed him to use this music to speak his truth, give his wisdom and something we will forever be able to live with."

Later during the Awards ceremony, music artists John Legend, DJ Khaled Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, YG, and Kirk Franklin, also paid tribute to Nipsey’s legacy with a breathtaking performance.

While unplanned, Grammys host Alicia Keys also paid tribute to Kobe – with some help from Boyz II Men – with an emotional rendition of the band’s song, "It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday."
