Kobe’s Family Is Selling Tickets To Staples Center Memorial Service

We reported earlier that Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi’s bodies were laid to rest last week Friday. And just in time, Bryant’s memorial service will be held next weekend.

But there’s a controversy over the service already. In a shocking move, the Laker’s organization and Kobe’s family have chosen to sell tickets to the event, instead of giving them away.




The money they earn, will purportedly be given to charity. But the Lakers aren’t selling them to the public, Lakers’ season ticket holders will get first dibs at the tickets, which can cost in excess of $200 each.

Here’s the report culled from TMZ :

“We’re told tickets will be available to the general public, although there will be a number of invited guests who get tickets first, including family, friends, players, NBA officials and, we’re told, season ticket holders.




We’re told the seats that remain will be sold to the public at a price that reflects the memories of Kobe and Gigi. We’re told one of the options being discussed was to sell the upper bowl seats at $24.02 — 24 representing Kobe’s number and 2 representing Gigi’s.

The net proceeds will go to a charity selected by the family. Whatever the price ends up being, our sources say it will reflect and honor Kobe and Gigi.”




But folks online are not pleased with the idea of forcing Kobe’s fans to pay for the memorial service. In comparison, Michael Jackson’s service, and Nipsey Hussle’s service both held at the Staples Center, were free.
