Jennifer Lopez compartió un momento íntimo y conmovedor que vivió al lado de Alex Rodríguez al enterarse de la trágica muerte de Kobe Bryant.
A pesar de que JLo ha pasado más de una semana concentrada en los ensayos para lo que será el espectáculo de medio tiempo en el Super Bowl LIV junto a Shakira, la cantante estadounidense de origen puertorriqueño detalló el momento en que recibió la lamentable noticia.
“Estaba en medio del ensayo y hablando del show y Alex, vino hacia mí, con lágrimas en los ojos, y me dijo, ‘no vas a creer lo que ha sucedido’. Y estaba devastado, conocía a Kobe muy bien”, contó la llamada “Diva del Bronx”.
Cabe señalar que en redes sociales Alex Rodríguez dedicó unas emotivas palabras para Bryant. “Pasamos de secundaria a los profesionales y nuestras hijas crecieron juntas. Él era mi entrenador secreto. Me empujó y me motivó, especialmente en el final de mi carrera, cuando más lo necesitaba. Siempre estuvo ahí”.

My heart hurts so much right now. I still can’t wrap my head around this. How can it be? . I learned so much from Kobe Bryant. He was naturally gifted, but had a passion for basketball like no one else I’ve ever seen. His work ethic was impeccable and his stress on mastering the fundamentals is what elevated him to the player he was. I’ve never met anyone more focused with a myopic approach. He didn’t pursue approval, affirmation or adulation. He pursued excellence and process. He followed my career and would often call to help with my health, daily routine … and would even chime in about hitting techniques. He was a role model to me, and millions around the world. . We met as teenagers. We followed similar paths. We went from high school to the pros and our baby girls grew up together. People don’t know this, but he was my secret coach. He pushed me and motivated me, especially toward the end of my career when I needed him most. He was always there. Even after our playing days, he was there for me. He attended @Jlo’s last show in Vegas. He appeared on TheCorp podcast. . I last saw him a few months ago. I will remember what he told me about how much he loved Vanessa and his girls, and that he continued to say no to 99 percent of offers, choosing instead to spend as much time with his family as possible. . I will remember his greatness. I will remember his guidance. I will remember his friendship. I will remember that he made me a better person. . His 13-year-old daughter Gianna was following in her Dad’s footsteps. She was kind, smart, caring and going to be a star. . Rest in peace, Kobe. Rest in peace, GiGi. My heart and prayers go out to the Bryant family and the passengers’ families.
De la misma forma ha trascendido que en el esperado partido del fin de semana en algún momento se dedicará un homenaje para el fallecido ex estrella de la NBA.
