Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were laid to rest with Lakers-colored flowers at a private grave site in California.

Rainbow colored pinwheels, flowers, and rosaries were scattered beautifully on their finally resting place.



A stone wall, trees, and bushes surround the plot of land – which appears to have a gate at the entrance.

Yellow and purple flowers seem to have been delicately placed in the soil along the stone wall.

The burial service was held at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona del Mar, California – near the family's home.

A private funeral was held for the NBA legend and his second-oldest daughter, Gianna Bryant, in Los Angeles, California on Friday February 7.

A source with knowledge of the event told ET Tuesday that Kobe's loved ones wanted privacy to process the tragic loss as they continue to grasp a new reality without the family man.

The 41-year-old NBA legend and his 13-year-old daughter were buried two weeks after they tragically died in a helicopter crash alongside seven others as the group was headed to Kobe's Mamba Sports Academy training facility.

The Sikorsky-76 chopper came down in fog in the Calabasas mountains northwest of Los Angeles.

Kobe is survived by his wife Vanessa and their three daughters Natalia Diamante, 17, Bianka Bella, 3, and Capri Kobe, 7 months.



The death certificates of Kobe and Gianna reveal the NBA legend and his daughter both died "rapidly" in last month's helicopter crash.

Their cause of death was listed as blunt force trauma.

The cemetery in Los Angeles is also the final resting place of actresses Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood, actors Jack Lemmon and Don Knotts, as well as musicians Dean Martin and Roy Orbison.

Gigi was herself a talented athlete who was following her father's footsteps into basketball.

Vanessa Bryant, 37, is said to be so devastated she "cannot finish a sentence without crying" but is trying to stay strong for daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, three, and Capri, seven months.

At the controls was Ara Zobayan, 50, said to be the only pilot Kobe would fly with.

Also killed were Orange Coast College basketball coach John Altobelli, 56, his wife Keri, 46, and their daughter Alyssa, 13, who played on the same team as Gianna.

The Sun was told how the Altobellis' surviving daughter Lexi, 16, travelled to LA to identify her parents and sister.
