NBA Star, Kobe Bryant’s Wife, Files For Divorce

108

December 17, 2011 by The ReadyWriter


When Vanessa Bryant found out Kobe cheated in 2003, the 8 carat, 4 million dollar diamond ring had her forgiving him; but here we are eight years later and Vanessa has filed for divorce, prompted by Kobe’s infidelity.

“The Bryant’s have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a Judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012,” a representative said in a statement.

Kobe and Vanessa met while he was shooting a video for his hip-hop album, which was never released. Vanessa was a 17-year-old backup dancer who was still in high school. When Kobe and Vanessa married in 2001, his parents and sister who disapproved of the relationship were not in attendance (so I know they’re glad).

The couple’s been married 10 years with no prenuptial agreement in place and because California is a community property state, Vanessa is likely entitled to half of Kobe’s earnings during their 10-year marriage. The LA Lakers star is expected to make $25,244,493 this year, according to ESPN.

Vanessa is seeking spousal support and custody of the couple’s two daughters, 8-year-old Natalia and 5-year-old Giana.

      They did not attend the wedding because they didn’t approve or her or like her. Kobe was dating another girl for five years prior to his engagement to Vanessa, and they loved her but Vanessa was Kobe’s choice and they should have respected that. Kobe’s mom should have at least attended to support her son. The son she gave birth to. It must have been very hurtful for this young girl to know that her future in laws and his sisters did not like her from the jump!

        Because his parents wanted him to put his money back into some black folks pockets, these NBA players don’t realize that when a white woman is laying next to them all they want is their money and that puts their money into the white’s man’s pocket and into the white man’s community. Now Kobe will be taking care of this ugky chick as long as he lives.

        I agree with BigBelly,
        @Angelhair,
        i think Kobe’s family viewed Vanessa as a gold digging skank and opportunis­t and didn’t want to support that foolishnes­s. In the end, Kobe’s fortune will be cut by half and look, they are still his family.

But the negroe thinks he’s struck gold because these type of bitches give them play. She’s only doing it for the money. Her pussy is the investment and millions is what she gets back. This nigga is worth over several hundred million and that ho gets half. Bitches like this I wish would eat shit and die because they are a waste of their father’s sperm.

      Divorce is unfortunate for the kids involved. It appears ATM Kobe and Vanessa are handling this very maturely being they have worked out financial agreements already, she could have taken half and kept it moving. I may joke and laugh about her leaving with half, but it’s sad he couldn’t stop cheating. Just like Keisha from down the street don’t leave her cheating man who work for the city, why would Vanessa leave hers?
