Kobe Bryant's Heartbroken Father Joe Is Seen For The First Time Since His Son & Granddaughter Died In Helicopter Crash

Kobe Bryant's heartbroken father Joe has been seen for the first time since losing his son, 41, and his 13-year-old granddaughter Gigi in a helicopter crash.

The 65-year-old retired NBA star, affectionately known as Jellybean, stepped out of the home he shares with Kobe's mother, Pamela, in Las Vegas - after a giant bouquet of yellow flowers were delivered on Monday afternoon.

This comes as neighbors told DailyMail.com that Joe and Pamela's lives have been turned 'upside down'. A neighbor, who asked not to be named, said the family is too heartbroken to comment on the tragedy and are grieving privately.

'I talked to them twice yesterday and took over food and a card, and briefly today, they are just devastated, as you can imagine,' the neighbor said, adding: 'It's a private, awful moment, losing their son and grand-daughter, it's just horrific. I was talking to Joe briefly the day before, we were out for a walk, it was all happy and good and talking about the gorgeous weather and then it switched in 24 hours where their lives were turned upside down.'
