A drug found in Kobe Bryant’s system during his autopsy suggests the former Los Angeles Lakers star may have had ADHD. The autopsy report, the details of which were made public last week, confirmed all of the victims of that fatal helicopter crash on January 26 died from blunt trauma while it was also confirmed that the pilot, Ara Zobayan, had no drugs or alcohol in his system at the time.
Per ESPN, Bryant’s report claimed the only drug he had in his system at the time was methylphenidate. The stimulant medication is sold under the brand name Ritalin; it is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy.
The findings have unsurprisingly prompted loads of internet speculation.
That the drug was found in his system suggests the late icon was likely taking it for ADHD, which is defined as “A chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness.”
Of course, it isn’t really anyone’s business. But now that it’s out there, people are curious.
