Kobe and Gigi passed away with 7 other people in the accident that shook the world in January.

Queen Bey was dressed in a gold-coloured suit, according to a report by TimesLIVE, and sang his favourite song, XO.

She described Gianna as a sweet and gentle soul saying she regrets she will never witness her wedding.

Kobe, 41, was also eulogised by former NBA Legends Michael Jordan who broke down in tears. The widow chose 24 February as the date for the memorial in honour of the pair's uniform numbers.

Meanwhile, it was also reported that Vanessa is suing the owner of the helicopter which killed Kobe and Gigi.

Vanessa's suit against the company came just days after her hubby and daughter were laid to rest.

She sued for damages from the company for allowing the helicopter to fly in bad weather condition, causing deaths. The suit also implicated the pilot for excessive speed in the weather conditions.
