This is gutting.
Former NBA player Rasual Butler and his wife Leah LaBelle tragically died in a Studio City, CA car crash early Wednesday morning.
While little details have been released, TMZ is reporting the 38-year-old lost control of his Range Rover around 2 a.m., struck a parking meter, and slammed into a wall which caused the car to flip.
Butler played in the NBA until 2016 — joining the Heat, Hornets, Clippers, Bulls, Raptors, Pacers, Wizards and Spurs on the court during his professional career. Leah placed 12th on the third Season of American Idol in 2004. She was an R&B singer signed to Epic Records.
We’re sending love and light to the couple’s family during this tragic time.
