BASKETBALL : FORMER NBA STAR RASUAL BUTLER AND WIFE AMERICAN IDOL'S LEAH LABELLE KILLED IN CAR CRASH !
Former NBA player Rasual Butler and his wife RnB singer Leah Labelle had been killed in a tragic car crash in Studio City, Los Angeles, California, early dawn today.

Rasual Butler played in the NBA for 14 years from 2002 to 2016, while his wife Leah Labelle was a finalist of American Idol, Season 3, in 2004.

Reports say, the couple was travelling along Studio City's iconic Ventura Boulevard, near Hollywood, aboard their Range Rover SUV when they lost control, mowed three parking meters roadside, hit a concrete wall, then rolled into a mall's parking lot.

Rasual Butler and Leah Labelle were both pronounced dead at the scene, 2:30 am, as a result of their injuries sustained from the fatal impact.

Butler was 38, Labelle was 31.

RASUAL BUTLER
Rasual Butler had played for some heavyweight teams in the NBA during his 14-year career , drafting with Miami Heat, then moved to New Orleans Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards and San Antonio Spurs.

He played a total of 809 games in his NBA career.

Years after her American Idol stint, Leah Labelle was signed by Epic Records and So So Def Recordings in 2011.

Condolences poured on social media following Butler and Labelle's sudden deaths.

"The NBA family is devastated by the tragic passing of Rasual Butler and his wife, Leah LaBelle", posted the NBA @NBA.

"Our hearts go out to the family, friends and many fans of our former Idol Leah LaBelle and her husband Rasual Butler, who passed away early this morning", tweets the American Idol @AmericanIdol.

"Rest In Peace my brother', said NBA Legend Kobe Bryant @KobeBryant.

Seemingly ominous to the impending tragedy, Rasual Butler posted a rather spiritual message on Instagram just days before his and his wife's deaths.

"You are my King! I look up to you for it all! Thank you for always answering when I call . . ", the befallen NBA star had said.
