Brandy revealed through an Instagram post that she will "never understand" the death of her 1996 prom date, Kobe Bryant. The singer mourns Bryant and his daughter's passing with millions of others around the world.


A week after the tragic helicopter crash that took the lives of Kobe and Gianna Bryant and seven others, people continue to show their love for the late basketball legend and his family.

Kobe Bryant took the "Moesha" star to his Lower Merion Township High School Prom in May 2016.


Norwood is the latest celebrity to publicly send her condolences to Kobe's wife Vanessa and their three children, Natalia, Bianka, and Capri.

"Never will I understand. My condolences to [Vanessa Bryant], the entire family, and all in pain during this tragic time. Love #Mamba #Mambacita."



Weeks before being drafted in the NBA, Kobe Bryant took the "Moesha" star to his Lower Merion Township High School prom in May 1996. At the time, Kobe donned a black tux with no tie, and Brandy was in her signature braids and a sleeveless champagne Moschino dress.


After going to prom together, the friends, later on, attended several events together, with Bryant even guest-starring on an episode of "Moesha."



While people still have millions of questions about Kobe's untimely death, he once spoke about the topic years ago, and why he felt prepared for it.

In 2016, Kobe sat down with The Ringer's Micah Peter to promote the release of his newest sneakers called "Kobe A.D.," the first-ever not to follow a numerical sequence.

In the interview, Kobe revealed that he was comfortable knowing that he will once pass away and that he accepted that fact.

"It's a comfortable one. It's an understanding that you can't have life without death, can't have light without the dark, right? So it's an acceptance of that."



Kobe and Gianna Bryant, along with seven of their peers, passed away after their helicopter crashed into a hillside in Calabasas on the morning of January 26.

They were on the way to the Mamba Basketball Academy in Thousand Oaks California and were flying in foggy conditions that grounded other helicopters.

Kobe was 41, while his daughter Gianna was only 13-years-old. May they and the rest of the passengers Rest In Peace.
