50 Cent has vowed to make a huge life change following the sudden and tragic death of Kobe Bryant, and says he will no longer feud in public.

Kobe died on Sunday at the age of 41 in a helicopter crash which also killed the NBA legend’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people.

The news of Kobe’s sudden passing has shaken his loved ones and celebrity peers, including 50 Cent who has reflected on how life can be cut short unexpectedly.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, the In Da Club rapper said: ‘I feel like I have to achieve what I want in life now after this.

‘I have to focus, I’m not arguing with anyone anymore. I’ll deal with it another way if there’s a problem.’

He accompanied the post with a video of him sharing a warm hug with Kobe on the court of a basketball game.

50 had earlier said: ‘RIP to KOBE I send my sincere condolences to his family.’


The TV producer isn’t the only star to enter a state of reflection after the devastating loss of Kobe, Gianna and the other victims on-board the helicopter.

Rapper T.I. has publicly apologised to his daughters for ‘any imperfections that cause misunderstandings’ between them.

The Expeditiously podcast host wrote in a lengthy caption: ‘I love you girls more than my vocabulary will allow me to express. You have grown so much right before my very eyes & blossomed into strong, brilliantly opinionated, independent young women.

‘I’m so proud of you both and I love you to no end, more than you’ll ever know.’

He continued: ‘Please forgive me for any and all imperfections that cause misunderstandings between us…. Charge my mind, not my heart. You see Life may throw us curveballs & deal us some pretty bad hands at times.

‘But rest assured, you’ll NEVER find yourself in a place too high or low for me to be there to catch you when you fall. I just Can’t let another second go by without letting you know while we’re still here in this life together… You have ALL MY LOVE FOR ALL MY LIFE…&AFTER‼️’

All nine bodies of those who died in the crash have been removed from the crash site in Calabasas, California.

Kobe is survived by his wife Vanessa Bryant, and their three other daughters Natalia, 17, Bianka, three, and seven-month-old Capri.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is underway and there are reportedly plans to host a large memorial service in Los Angeles for the former LA Lakers icon.
