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.

Love the comment. You are so right.

Couldn’t happen to a better person! His networth is estimated to be $200mm. Oh Vanessa, you are now my hero. I second Dina, “Take it all, honey!” He is such a cocky b-stard.

@SnOOKIE: yeah you do, you get 1/2 and then some.

“Take it all honey!”

Look at all the useless women here.

Next stop, a stint on Basketball Wives.

She only made it ten years for the alimony payments. Their marriage was a mess from jump and Kobe’s about to get “Tigered”.

Divorce is horrible @ 12/16/2011 at 10:36 pm

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.

I don’t understand why these athletes get married knowing that they will be unfaithful.

Oopsie…did Kobe pick up an STD from one of his back alley encounters??

WOW, how piss*d must she be to file BEFORE christmas? Usually couples let the kids have one last happy Christmas…then they have time to adjust before the next holiday…she’s really had enough.


That’s how she is. She is the Blake llively of the NBA. They get passed around.

Good for her.

Good for her.

Such an arrogant douche. Good for her!

That woman is stunning. Why would he cheat on that? And I agree with the others here…take the money!
