Justin Bieber shared a photo of himself with Bryant years ago, writing: “It can’t be. You always encouraged me mamba. Gave me me some of the best quotes that we smile about to this day! Love you man!”

“I cannot believe this is real. My god. Oh my god,” Chrissy Teigen tweeted.

Her husband, singer John Legend, tweeted: “I’m so sad and stunned right now. In Staples Arena, where Kobe created so many memories for all of us, preparing to pay tribute to another brilliant man we lost too soon, Nipsey Hussle. Life can be so brutal and senseless sometimes. Hold on to your loved ones. We miss you, Kobe.”

Taylor Swift said on Twitter that her “heart is in pieces hearing the news of this unimaginable tragedy.”
