Kobe Bryant's Wife Files For Divorce


Apparently Vanessa Bryant finally decided no amount of money or jewelry was worth the amount of cheating that Kobe Bryant does so she filed for divorce. Almost immediately, Kobe Bryant filed his own petition and released a statement saying the couple had settled all of the issues in their divorce. The reason this was done so quickly is because Kobe does not want any of this coming out. I could practically put up a plaque with his name on it in the blind item hall of fame. He could have his own wing. I could write about him everyday, but have chosen to highlight only his memorable escapades. I need to go back, but I do think he had a Christmas one which is fitting considering the time of year now and the time of year of his divorce.

Also, isnt there a law in Cali that after ten years you are entitled to either half of the assets or spousal support for the rest of your life? Any Cali lawyers out there?

I heard that there's no prenup too, This little witch hung in there long enough to end up very wealthy.

after 10 years you 1/2 their social security, lol. i'm not in the 1%, so that is what i know. was thinking when i head this, that she had to have seen or found out something pretty big to leave just before christmas. no one with kids wants to do a divorce this time of year. january is the biggest month for filing, because everyone waits until after christmas. i left my ex the day before thanksgiving because what i found out was SO beyond what i could imagine. and like this woman, i knew there were other women. so what did she find out, is what i would like to know.

THIS is how it's done (channeling Michael K on gold diggers). She deserves every penny, and I'm going to enjoy watching her get it. Michael Jordan may have cheated on his wife, too, but he did so discreetly and was still a class act. Can't say the same for Kobe. Too much fame and adoration too young sort of ruined him.

Unknown said...

yes and yes! no prenup so she gets HALF of every-freaking-thang! ha-ha!!! she was smart.

Syko said...

On the social security, if you are married to someone for ten years, you can choose to get benefits based on their earnings rather than your own. When I applied, it turned out my benefits would be higher than my ex's, which is really pitiful because I was a stay-at-home housewife for 17 years.

I worked for over 30 years as a legal secretary in California, and did lots of dissolution of marriage filings. After ten years, a marriage is considered "long-term," so I guarantee she was counting the days until she could file to end the marriage. She probably had a calendar, and every day put up a big, red "X" and the words, for instance, "2,500 of 3,650," so she knew how many days were left. I've hated Kobe since the rape allegations, so good for her.

nancer said...

git it, girl. you earned every dime, IMO.

timebob said...

I thought she enjoyed being Mrs. Kobe Bryant vs. the daily cheating and would of stuck it out until the end.

She is every video girl's hero. Good for her, enjoy your bank. Just don't blow it all in bad investments like Eddie Murphy's ex wife did.

Bangagong said...

@ MadLyb I don't know if cheating discreetly on your spouse actually qualifies you to be a "class act." LOL

But good for them for sticking it out for so long. I remember when Kobe and Vanessa were first getting together and *no one* in Kobe's family wanted him to marry her but he was adamant and if I remember correctly, most of his family didn't go to the wedding.

The Black Cat said...

Has it really been 10 years? Where does the time go? :(

Christine! said...

I think she hung in there...good for her if she is getting a large payoff/payout-he can afford it. He certainly wasn't worried about her leaving over the cheating now was he...It seems like this has been worked out- it just DIDN'T HAPPEN, it has been in the making because you don't just go I want a divorce and take 6 days to figure it ALL out- what they have to work out took MONTHS!
He is a jerk, she probably is a jerk- and lets just hope their 2 daughters don't turn out to be like the Gretzky girl...
BEST OF LUCK to you girl- I hope you stash that $$$, focus on your kids and when they are outta the house- play all you want.
Merry Christmas Kobe- hope it was worth it!

Kobe is an ass, and Vanessa is no fool. The only reason she stuck around this long is because she knew the payout would be worth it. Get that money, girl. You deserve it after putting up with his shit for so long.

The Bitch Next Door said...

Sadly, we'll probably have to see her on THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEV HILLS. I know they live in the OC but that franchise is soooo tacky she's better suited for Bev Hills , when they kick off Taylor.

The Bitch Next Door said...

P.S. let's hope he hasn't pulled a Magic Johnson on her and brought home more than crabs.....

The Bitch Next Door said...

One more thought.....too bad Lamar was traded as KHLOE could have taken over the reigning bitch spot....Vanessa ruled with an iron fist & caused lots of probs with the other wives.

Char said...

Of course she filed for divorce as soon as she put in her 10 years. In most cases I would call her a gold digging b!tch but in this case, good on her. She did her time, and put up with WAY more than anyone ever should. She deserves every penny of the millions and millions of dollars that she is going to get. Suck it Kobe, you entitled dirtbag.

sunshine said...

if you have a good lawyer doesnt matter. my parents were married for 27 years with quite a few assets of course nothing compared to kobe. there was no 50/50 because one of them had a better lawyer!

Henriette said...

You know she counted the days until her ten years were up! It was just too obvious. Remember Kobe started dating her when she was in high school Gross. Good for her! Get your money and live well.

Layna Day said...

When I first heard this, my initial reaction was "Guess Kobe stopped going to the jewelry store for purple diamond rings."

Kobe is no saint and has this bad luck coming his way, but all signs point to Vanessa being a money hungry witch. She was just a teenage video girl, shaking her ladybits for rappers when Kobe came along and caught the love bug. Vanessa's parents made sure they got married--upward mobility, boys and girls! Vanessa married into more money in 10 minutes than she could have made in 10 years as a video vixen.

Kobe's dad told him to get a prenup, but ol' dummy didn't listen. In a way, K & V deserved each other. He's a smug bastard and she's a straight-up hag.

Eh, I'm not going to cry for either of them. Neither should suffer financially if they play their cards right.

shehlaS said...

Haha you suck Kobe!

Lelaina Pierce said...

His latest alleged affair is with one of Kim Kardashian's best friends. And her lawyer represented Kim K.

Doesn't everyone hate Vanessa? Good job on putting up with his shit for ten years, I guess?

FS said...

They got married in April, 2001, so if she was "counting the minutes" until she filed, then this all started back in the Spring. Either that or something huge had to happen for her to finally say that she had had enough and file right before Christmas. Whatever, none of us are in this marriage, we can only post the things we've heard. I have no pity nor care for either of them, I just hope their two daughters turn out okay.

Henriette said...

I love the pics of their wedding. It looks like a bad quinceaƱera. It's true---taste cannot be bought.

Kobe's family never liked her and I,believe, boycotted their wedding. He was an idiot for not having a prenup. I bet he got somebody pregnant or brought home a really nasty STD.

Ray said...

GOOD for her...I hope she takes him to the cleaners!!!

Moonmaid said...

I don't care for either, but glad he is getting bad press, since I have also despised him since those rape allegations. He should have gone to college and gotten a clue as to how to deal with life. He is thoroughly unpleasant - I hope their kids have some good adult influences in their lives. I hope she finds a decent man who loves her. No woman deserves to be cheated on and humiliated like that, no matter how much of a bitch she is.

weezy said...

Ray --- it may have been worse than that; during the rape allegations 8 years ago it was said he had herpes *then.*
