We are finding out more about the helicopter crash that took the lives of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gigi and 7 other people. Here’s what we know:

  • The LAPD air support on Sunday was reportedly grounded because of the fog on Sunday.
  • Flight tracker data revealed that the helicopter circled the LA zoo in Burbank 6 times at low altitude, which makes it seem as though the pilot was waiting for the fog to clear.
  • The pilot reached out to the Burbank airport control tower around 9:30am.
  • At 9:40am the pilot turned south in a mountainous region and suddenly climbed from 1,200 feet to 2,000 feet.

Minutes later the chopper crashed into a mountain near Calabasas. All of the audio between the pilot and Burbank air tower has been released and it turns out that Kylie Jenner was a frequent flier on that particular helicopter, knew the pilot very well, and even took her niece, Dream on a helicopter ride for her 3rd birthday.

Kobe was thinking ahead for his daughter Gigi..On Dec 30th he trademarked her nickname “Mambacita” (his nickname is the Black Mamba). According to the paperwork, the plan was to put Mambacita on all sorts of sportswear. Kobe will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame’s 2020 class alongside Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett.

“One round in the chamber. Cocked. Ten steps, turn and fire. That’d settle the score. The way he’s been acting, I think he’d crouch on the ground before he gets to 10 steps. He’s a candy ass. He’s whipped,” Markle said of the royal son-in-law he has never met. Despite his incredible challenge, Markle insists his explosive interviews are his “only shot” at getting through to his daughter, who has not spoken to him since he was a no-show at her May 2018 royal wedding.

“I’m at their mercy,” he told the morning TV show.

However, he bragged about being the key witness against his daughter in an upcoming court case — noting that it could prove to be the only way he could get in the same room as his estranged daughter and her husband.

“If it comes to meeting them in a courtroom, that’s great. At least I’d finally get to see them!” Markle told the UK TV show.
