Kobe Bryant’s wife files for divorce after ten years of marriage

After ten and a half years of marriage and two children, Vanessa Bryant wants a divorce.
From TMZ..
Vanessa Bryant filed legal docs Friday afternoon, citing "irreconcilable differences."
Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Vanessa -- who stuck by Kobe after he was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado woman in 2003 -- decided to end the marriage because she believes Kobe has been unfaithful ... again.
The couple have no pre-nup, so under California law, Vanessa is entitled to half his $360million net worth. Go get your money, girl! Lol. Continue reading...



From TMZ...As one source puts it, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough," adding, "This one is the straw that broke the camel's back." And our sources say ... Kobe "desperately" wants to win Vanessa back and will do "whatever it takes" to save their 10 1/2 year marriage.

According to the legal docs, Vanessa is asking for joint custody of their 2 daughters -- 8-year-old Natalia and 5-year-old Giana -- but Vanessa is asking that Kobe get visitation rights, which means she wants the kids in her care most of the time.

    He cheated, I don't support. She's taking half his hard-earned millions just cos he cheated is daylight robbery. I'm against that. The true reason for the divorce is not cos he cheated. It's cos she's after his money. Robbers should be hand-cuffed in jail, not in the bedroom.

    Damn! I'm a huge Kobe fan. Can't blame her for wanting a divorce though but let's take a look at Victoria Beckham. Despite her husband's philandering, she stuck by him. Well, wish Vanessa luck with finding a MAN who won't cheat.(if that's possible)

    Vanessa is Latino and she started dating him when she was 17 he had nothing but prospect when they got together.Not sure why she is the getting the blame, it is the law when you marry in California without a pre-nup you get half.Simple,if he had given her HIV would people be on Kobe' side? Vanessa go and get your money!(

    All of you that are saying men cheat should seriously shut up. Sorry but Kobe had it coming. He should have at least learned from Tiger Wood. And does of you telling her to think about her kids, why the F didn't Kobe think about his kids, or are they not his? Last year there was a story about an NFL player who was cheating on his wife and when the mistress insisted on marriage and the guy refused guess what she killed him and herself, now the wife is a widow raising 4kids on her own all because some jackass couldn't hold his dick, so no Kobe shoulda thought about his kids too, And you know what she is thinking of her girls cause she is asking for joint custody, it could have been worst trust me she can make him loss those kids too. But I digress... Kobe you know you are a target, you know what you stand to loss and you know the girl sure didn't marry you for your good looks, why was he stupid enough to play with fire hoping it won't burn. Yes Vanessa had a plan, but boy Kobe didn't walk into the trap he danced into it. It's ok for the guys that give their wives disease in 9ja all in the name that men cheat. If you want another woman so bad, then divorce your wife and marry that woman. There are way too many diseases and women out there waiting to destroy a family for someone to give me this BS of an excuse men cheat. Yes the babe is crying all the way to the bank, at least next time she deals with a man it will be on her own terms. O and for ya'll info, Cali law says if you divorce after 10yrs of marriage, you get half and that is before child support so boys and girls she is getting more than half, can someone say Chi chag... And like someone else already mentioned here, the moral of the story is boys and girls, if you cheat you pay (at least in America) Ask Tiger Wood, recovery is hard! Next time before he mess with another woman, he will have to think twice about wat he stands to loss.

    And does saying God hates divorce, God also hates adultery and he said this is the only reason a man should divorce his wife so even God knows say constant heart ache is not good for a person. He didn't do it ones its a continuous thing, what he wants to be like magic Johnson before he learn. So girls are seriously on a hunt for this guy, if Vanessa doesn't get hers now, some girl is going to one day crawl out of the wood works to sue him for child support so before other people start dipping into the money I say girl get yours first. One mans trash another mans treasure so Kobe is Vanessa's trash all you that want him as a treasure should go ahead but I guarantee you, u will find out what ol girl went through too!

    Interesting that there are those saying she should put up with the infidelity for whatever reasons.

    Including your health? If he wants to mess around let him do so in his own time, as we know the only 100% way to avoid diseases is to be loyal; no man/woman is worth the risk.

    Perhaps she is thinking about her daughters. He should have changed his ways if was that serious.

    Good for her!

    Let her take his money... What are you all complaining for? Kobe wouldn't even look at any of you black Nigerian girls for a second so why are you taking up for him? Black women can be so foolish sometimes I swear. they make songs about you calling you gold diggers yet the real gold diggers get held up like some kind of prize. Shine your eye.

    I don't support divorce. However Vanessa stuck by him - longer than most celeb wifeys wld...but he kept messing up, plus she'd been instrumental to his success - so who says she's not to get money?
    She'd been doing a good work @ his home front - with d kids while he was out cheating!
    Sides Kobe knows he'd be loosing money to Vanessa cuz they was no pre-nup - so his fighting hard to win her back. Trust me, if they'd been a pre-nup in place he wldnt even be bothered - he'd be waiting 4 her to leave already!
    Greedy Kobe - U can't eat Ur cake and have it broda - not this time, its PayBack Time!...hehehe

    Those of you calling her a gold digger must have lost your minds. This Kobe of a guy cannot keep his penis in his pants. Do you want him to baptize her with HIV/AIDS like many adultrous naija men bless their wives with HIV/AIDS before she leaves him? The bible says you can divorce on grounds of infidelity.

    And for those of you who say all men cheat, then what is the point of getting married then? I thought marraige is meant for one to be in a monogamous relationship. If I am going to hook up with someone who tomorrow will pass me a deadly disease that has no cure, then I am better of remaining single because where there is life, there is hope. Once you are dead, that is it. A cheap piece of jewelry on the fourth finger and MRS to my name ain't gonna protect me from HIV/AIDS.

    If Kobe's wife dies now from Kobe-infected HIV, who will take care of those beautiful girls? Most Married people give marraige a bad name. Most married folks are such bad role models and then tomorrow want to run their filthy mouths when young girls of marrigeable age are thinking twice about getting married. Pathetic adultrous losers!

After 10+ years marriage, how come she is just realising that she can get his money btw if he is smart he would not cheat!I feel bad cos of the children and I think men should realise that life is not all about poking your sticks in every holem You can't claim to love a woman and cause her pain.

    Nigerians and their cheap mentality.especially the men.I read these comments and all I feel is nausea.'All men cheat','its just cheating''she's a gold digger'...Is it till he brings her home the ultimate disease before you all go blaming her for not leaving when she could.360 is so much money but is there a life she wants that Kobe can't buy now and still keep face as a star's wife.I strongly believe they love each other a lot especially Kobe but the body is weak

    You all are trying to justify cheating.glorify it.make it seem Ok as long as it is a man.dumb people.You don't know how it hurts.perharps your wives should cheat on you and giv birth to kids that aint yours.I know you won't be talking this way.You will feel emasculated.Don't judge others,the money may seem huge to you greedy ppl you don't know how chick feels bout it: happiness is better off.

    And someone asked;when she stuck wit him through the most public cheating,why this now?Jeez! Do you know what he did now?What if he was nailing the kids nanny or her sister.Sumtin they will never say but something so shameful and humiliating.PLS THINK STRAIGHT JOR

    All you cheating men that are accusing her of taking half of the Kobe's money are all crazy. Are u 4 real. The hell that she went through being married to him, the 9months that she carried those babies in her tummy is something. Did she cheat? I think not, so you think that cheating is ok in marriage? Why? What if he gave her HIV aids? Then what should she have done.U nigerians are ridiculous, bcos in Nigeria u men cheat like what not, u think it is a right way to treat the mother of your kids. I love the law in America, if u cheat and divorce u get half that is right, bcos he violated the marriage rights, after all what is his is yours. As 4 the men in Naija, it is God alone that will punish all those who cheat on their wives, ur punishment is in ur after life. Abeg Kobe's wife I am happy for u o jare, useless Kobe, he is a fool.Idiot cheater. U go girl!
