Kobe Bryant has died. The 41-year-old was among the nine killed in a helicopter crash yesterday morning in Calabasas, California. His 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, was also on-board. They were on their way to the Mamba Academy in Thousand Oaks for basketball practice. Kobe was born in Philadelphia but grew up in Italy where his father played basketball. Kobe joined the NBA right after graduating high school. He spent his 20-season career with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was the third all-time scorer in the NBA until Saturday when he was surpassed by LeBron James. He also won five NBA championships. When he retired in 2016, he set another record by making 60 points in his final game.

Taylor Swift talked about overcoming an eating disorder in her documentary "Taylor Swift: Miss Americana" according to OK! USA. She admitted that in the past, there were a few times when she would see a picture of herself and think her "tummy was too big" or someone said she "looked pregnant," which would then just "trigger" her "to just starve a little bit... just stop eating.” Taylor said now, she has learned that body acceptance is a constant battle and added, “If you’re thin enough, then you don’t have that a** that everybody wants. But if you have enough weight on you to have an a**, your stomach isn’t flat enough. It’s all just f***ing impossible.”

The Harvey Weinstein rape trial is set to resume today, following testimony from several prominent actresses this past week. As we told last week, actress Annabella Sciorra, testified Thursday that Harvey raped her in the early 90s. And while his attorneys tried to pick her apart, she stood strong. And on Friday, she had backup from Rosie Perez, who took the stand, standing by Annabella's account and saying that she got a phone call from Annabella, who told her, “I think something bad happened to me.” Annabella also swore Rosie to secrecy, and it was a secret she kept for years, but ultimately she told Nicole Wallace, former co-host of “The View.” She explained, “I betrayed my promise to her to never tell anybody I knew.” Testimony is expected to resume today.

The Jonas Brothers performed on the GRAMMYs last night, and while they debuted a snippet of a new song, “Five More Seconds,” people on the Internet couldn’t stop talking about Nick Jonas’s teeth. Apparently, during the song, people thought they saw some food caught in Nick’s teeth. But Nick was a good sport about it. He responded to the tweets, “And at least you all know I eat my greens. --.”

Kobe Bryant was honored at the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards last night after his sudden passing. The GRAMMYs took place at the Staples Center, where Kobe spent his entire career as a Los Angeles Laker. Lizzo was the first to pay her respects, saying before her performance, “Tonight is for Kobe,” host Alicia Keys then opened the show acknowledging the feelings of everyone in the room. She noted that everyone was feeling “crazy sadness” over Kobe's death, and that they were all “heartbroken” standing in the “house that Kobe Bryant built.” She added, “We never imagined in a million years we'd have to start the show like this, so we wanted to do something do describe a tiny bit how we feel right now.” She was then joined by the Boyz II Men for an emotional performance of their classic “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday,” which was followed by the cameras panning to Kobe's jersey hung in the rafters.

Jennifer Aniston played guest host on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Friday, and since she was close to where “Friends” was filmed, she decided to have some fun on the Warner Bros. tour. Jen shared a video in which she was hiding behind the iconic orange couch from the Central Perk set and jumped up behind fans as they sat on the couch to have their picture taken. What's really funny is that you can hear someone off-camera ask the fans who their favorite "Friends" characters are. It was pretty embarrassing when none of them said Rachel. Awkward.

Bravo is losing another “Real Housewives” OG. After weeks of speculation, Vicki Gunvalson has confirmed that she won’t be returning for the next season of “Real Housewives of Orange County.”We’ve been telling you that Vicki’s future on the show was unclear after she was demoted to a “friend” for season 14. Vicki insisted during BravoCon that she would only return if she got a full-time role, and it looks like that didn’t happen. She told fans she’ll “always be the OG of the OC” but after an “incredible ride for 14 years,” she’s ready to work on “new projects,” like her upcoming podcast, “Whoop It Up with Vicki.” But it’s not just Vicki leaving - Tamra Judge is out too, and her exit is more of a shock than Vicki’s. She wrote on Instagram, “It’s been a wild 12 years, but it’s time for me to move on. I'm sad to go but I’m very excited about my future.”

“This Is Us” star Chris Sullivan is going to be a dad! Chris, who plays Toby on the show, has revealed that his wife, Rachel Reichard, is expecting their first child. And just like his character, he revealed it in a very funny way. In his post to Instagram, Chris shows the picture of the ultrasound, but then you can click through for his not-so-subtle hints as to the baby's gender. Let's just say I'll never look at a banana, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or a cactus the same way again. He's also ruined clouds for me too.

As we reported, Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among the nine killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday morning in Calabasas, California. Besides being an all-star player for the Los Angeles Lakers, he was an Oscar-winning filmmaker, children’s book author, Olympic gold medalist, husband to Vanessa, father to Gianna, Bianka, Natalia and Capri, and a friend and mentor to virtually all of Hollywood. Now, celebrities are joining sports stars and fans in paying tribute to Kobe on social media. Kobe’s longtime Lakers teammates Shaquille O'Neal and Lamar Odom, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are particularly heartbroken by the news, remembering Kobe as “so much more than an athlete.”
- Shaq wrote, “There are no words to express the pain I’m going through now with this tragic and sad moment of losing my niece Gigi & my friend, my brother, my partner in winning championships, my dude and my homie. Whenever we got together I would hug his children like they were my own and he would embrace my kids like they were his. I miss you already brother. This is truly unbelievable." Kobe had even texted Shaq's son earlier that morning, and Shareef responded with a text that Kobe would never see.
- Michael Jordan has shared a statement about the tragic news, saying Kobe was like a "little brother" to him, adding, "Words can't describe the pain I'm feeling, I loved Kobe – we used to talk often, and I will miss those conversations very much. Kobe was an amazing dad who loved his family deeply – and took great pride in his daughter's love for the game of basketball."
- Though Kobe's jersey numbers had been previously retired in December with the Lakers, the only team he played for during his professional career, Mark Cuban is setting aside #24 in Kobe's honor, saying it will "never again be worn by a Dallas Maverick." He added, "Kobe's legacy transcends basketball. Our hearts go out to all the lives lost and the families impacted by this terrible tragedy."
Other celebrities to share their condolences include Khloe Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon, Lance Bass, Barack Obama, Khalid, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, Disney boss Bob Iger, Kelly Clarkson, fellow basketball legends Vince Carter, Scotty Pippen, and Paul Pierce, also NFL players Tom Brady and Brett Favre, rapper A$AP Rocky, Ellen DeGeneres, and former Lakers cheerleader Paula Abdul.

When we told you that Channing Tatum and Jessie J were back together, the news wasn’t technically confirmed. Now, not only is the reunion Instagram official, but Channing has had to defend his love, according to "Today." When Channing shared a picture of him and Jesse, someone commented, “Jenna looks better with you,” referring to his ex. Channing didn't take that so well and responded, “If you can't not be a horrible (hateful) person on my page and support the infinite and untouchable beauty and woman that Jess is... please kindly get TF out of here. No one wants you here. Especially me. Ain't (nobody) more stunning and beautiful to look at but even more as a human than Jess. And yeah that includes my ex. Sorry about your opinion. But what I said is facts. Just facts.” And lest his comments about Jenna Dewan were misconstrued, he came back with, “Jenna is beautiful and amazing in her own right. But no and I mean no (one) is more beautiful or better than anyone else. Beauty isn't measurable. It's in the eye of the be holder (sic).” Jessie appreciate his defending her honor and responded with, “My BABY! Horns OUT!” Meanwhile, Jenna didn’t respond to Channing’s post, but it appears that her man did. Steve Kazee shared a gif meme of Will Ferrell with the words, “Watch your mouth,” on his IG Story. Underneath he wrote, “That reckless talk bruh…”

“Bachelor” alum Jade Roper won’t be getting her $1 million fantasy football prize after all. DraftKings has stripped her of the win after she and her husband Tanner Tolbert were accused of cheating, according to Us Weekly. Jade came out on top of DraftKings’ Millionaire Maker challenge during wild Card weekend on January 5th after choosing 150 different rosters for 300 unique entries between herself and her husband. Twitter users couldn’t help but notice the similarities, calling it “the clearest collusion ever.” Meanwhile, the couple told Us Weekly they “respect” the site’s decision, but they also wonder if the same questions and accusations would come up if they weren’t “in the public eye.” They’re still insisting her win was “pure luck.”

Former "Dancing with the Stars" pro Julianne Hough got an “exorcism” treatment, thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow. In an Instagram video that’s getting some attention, Julianne can be seen receiving a bizarre treatment by a doctor who was featured in Goop’s new Netflix documentary. In the clip of the demonstration, Julianne was lying face-down on a massage table, and after the doctor lightly touched her around her neck, her body started twitching in some avery awkward ways, and she even screamed at some point when the doctor touched some pressure points on her body, supposedly “releasing stored-up energy.” Apparently, you know the treatment is working if you "make sound,” no matter how that sound ends up coming out. No thanks.... I think I'm just going to stick with my regular chiropractor.
