Kobe Bryant’s Wife Files for Divorce

So why now? Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, filed for divorce on Friday in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Sources told TMZ that Vanessa has decided to end the marriage because she believes Bryant has been unfaithful again, but TMZ reported that Bryant “desperately” wants to save the 10-and-a-half-year marriage. “She’s been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she’s finally had enough,” a source told TMZ. According to court documents, Vanessa is asking for joint custody of the couple’s two daughters, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5. The couple apparently does not have a prenup, so Vanessa is entitled to half of Kobe’s earnings over the past decade.
