    Kobe Bryant died in a helicoper crash in Calabasas Sunday morning ... TMZ Sports has confirmed.

    Kobe was traveling with at least 3 other people in his private helicopter when it went down. A fire broke out. Emergency personnel responded, but nobody on board survived. 5 people are confirmed dead. We're told Vanessa Bryant was not among those on board.

    The cause of the crash is under investigation.

    Kobe has famously used a helicopter to travel for years -- dating back to when he played for the Lakers. He was known for commuting from Newport Beach, CA to the STAPLES Center in DTLA in his Sikorsky S-76 chopper.

    KB is survived by his wife Vanessa, and their four daughters -- Gianna, Natalia and Bianca and their newborn Capri.

    Multiple outlets are reporting about a helicopter crash in Calabasas, but TMZ is the only one reporting that Kobe was on board.

    Reading descriptions of the helicopter crash, it's eerily similar to the one that claimed Stevie Ray Vaughan.

    Most of the news outlets are referencing TMZ. Must not be many articles because it is so recent.

    Sadly, this appears to be for real.

    RIP black mamba

    My son just came in and said the same , that it's being reported Kobe's dead but isn't sure if it's for real.

    That sucks if true.

    Dang, my favorite basketball player ever. We were only a month apart in age so it was always inspiring to me how much he achieved and how hard he worked. It made me work harder too. Damn this is really upsetting and I'm not one to usually care about celebrities
