Kylie, 22, once rented the helicopter and flew niece Dream Kardashian in it for her birthday.
In November last year, her brother Rob Kardashian posted photos of his daughter, Dream, 3, posing outside the aircraft with a big smile on her face. Another picture showed her on a leather seat inside the helicopter with headphones over her ears and a cuddly toy next to her.
One fan who noticed commented: “Oh wow I just noticed this is the same helicopter which was Kobe Bryant’s. That’s really eary…”
Another posted: “Is that the helicopter that Kobe and his daughter died???”
Kylie later confirmed it was the same helicopter while mourning pilot Ara Zobayan, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gigi, and others on board.
Sharing a photo of all who died in the helicopter crash, Kylie wrote on her Instagram Story: “rest in peace..and prayers to these families. i still can’t believe this. that was the helicopter i would fly on from time to time with that pilot, Ara. he was such a nice man. hold your loved ones close.”
