Marie wasn't the only overwhelmed celebrity as Wonder Wall reported that other stars including former US President Barack Obama, Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Taylor Swift had paid tribute to Kobe.

Taylor had shared her love for not only the late basketball star but for everybody who had lost a family member on that flight.

Barack stated that although he was saddened about Kobe's death, he was even more heartbroken to learn of his daughter's passing as he was a parent himself.
