NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant died in a helicopter crash on January 26.
As the world is still struggling to come to terms with the news of his death, netizens have unearthed an old tweet predicting the former basketballer’s death.
In the tweet shared on 14th November 2012, a netizen identified as Noso claimed that the fallen star would die in a helicopter crash.

The tweet has since gone viral and many online users have called on Noso to delete the controversial tweet.
In an episode of Legends of Legends of Chamberlain Heights on Comedy central, the star’s death was predicted in a short clip that shows him crashing in a helicopter with the Lakers colors.
