Beyoncé paid tribute to the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter, 13-year-old Gianna, in a series of Instagram posts late Wednesday.

According to "Entertainment Tonight," the singer shared one photo of the NBA icon kissing Gianna's head, another of Bryant as a boy and a third image of Gianna smiling at the camera.

"I will continue to diligently pray for your Queens. You are deeply missed beloved Kobe," Beyoncé captioned one of the photo

The posts came just days after the father and daughter, as well as seven other people, died in a California helicopter crash.
