Kobe Bryant & Wife Vanessa Split

Kobe Bryant & Wife Vanessa Split

Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are ending their 10-year marriage, according to TMZ.

Vanessa, 29, filed for divorce on Friday (December 16) citing “irreconcilable differences,” with sources claiming the split happened because the 33-year-old Los Angeles Lakers star was allegedly unfaithful.

“She’s been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she’s finally had enough. This one is the straw that broke the camel’s back,” the source explained.

Vanessa stood by Kobe during his 2003 scandal when he was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado woman.

The two, who reportedly do not have a prenup, have two daughters together, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5.

    Divorce is horrible Says:

    I dont know what’s sadder the fact their getting a divorce or the rude and unnecessary comments people are making. No matter who they are or what it is they might have done, divorces are very hard and especially when there are kids involved. I am completely opposed to divorces, marriage is a sacred thing which shouldn’t be overused. We should give them the privacy they deserve, for their sake and the girls. The fact that people are saying “take it all honey” or ” this is guna hurt Kobe, no prenuptial” is so ughhh annoying!!!! What if we come to that the only thing on our mind is money, anywayssss I’m going off track this is just sad wish them the best as they go through this.
