While addressing media ahead of the Sunday game, JLo reacted how she and her fiancé Alex are handling post Kobe’s tragic death. Lopez revealed, “Alex came to me with tears in his eyes, and he's like, 'You're not going to believe what happened.' He was devastated. He knew Kobe really well. They kind of came up together, entered sports around the same time, and he was just devasted. I knew Kobe and Vanessa more in passing. He had come to my last show in Vegas — the both of them — as a date night and we had a beautiful night that night".

She further added that she thinks it's affecting everybody so much because it's just reminding us, again, how fragile life is and how we have to appreciate every single moment and how we have to love people while they're here and not wait. And how we don't get the opportunity — it can be taken away from us so easily.
Sharing a couple of pictures of Kobe with family and JLo with Kobe, she wrote a heartfelt note alongside. Her long captioned read, “Family. As I scrolled through Kobe’s feed, and Alex and I talk memories and moments we remember about him ... this is the truth that rings out the loudest ... family is what matters most. We are all feeling sadness from this loss, but all I can think of is that it is a grain of sand compared to what Vanessa must going through right now.”
