On Tuesday, “Extra’s” Billy Bush spoke to actor Lorenzo Lamas, who was friends with Ara Zobayan, the pilot who was flying Kobe Bryant’s helicopter when it went down.

In addition to being a pilot, Zobayan was also a flight instructor who mentored Lamas. He said, “He was a friend, a very dear friend. I’ve known Ara for 20 years… We started flying together back in early 2000. There is a long history of friendship between the two of us, and that’s what makes this so difficult to deal with.”
