Rick Fox was not a passenger in helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant
Former L.A. Laker and Boston Celtic -- not to mention former Mr. Vanessa Williams -- Rick Fox has come a long way as an actor since stepping off the basketball court with several guest-starring TV roles like "Dirt" and "One Tree Hill."
To confirm my stepdad Rick Fox is ALIVE and safe! I just got off the phone with my sister. We are all in shock and deeply saddened but please don’t spread false news. #ripkobe 💔 pic.twitter.com/vGSAShagkk
