Vanessa Bryant calls off divorce from Kobe, but she’s already got 1/2 his money

Vanessa Bryant calls off divorce from Kobe Bryant

This story is from yesterday, but I still wanted to cover it and speculate about what’s going on in Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa’s relationship. The last we heard from these crazy kids, they were back together after Kobe gave Vanessa a bunch of expensive jewelry and swore up and down that he’d never cheat again. (Didn’t he do that in ’03 after the trial?) It’s been a whole four months since we’ve heard new about Kobe and Vanessa, and it looks like their divorce is off, for now. Vanessa already filed for divorce in December, but apparently there’s a clause that she has to wait six months before filing additional papers to make it a done deal. She can pull the plug at any point now, but she’s not doing it yet. It looks like she’s content to reconcile and is letting the threat of divorce loom over Kobe’s head too. Here’s more, thanks to TMZ:

Vanessa Bryant will NOT sign documents to make her divorce final … at least for now … because TMZ has learned, she and Kobe are working on a full reconciliation.

We’ve learned Kobe and Vanessa are trying to work out the issues that caused her to file for divorce back in December. They spend a lot of time together but he has not officially moved back in with her.

Under California law, Vanessa has to wait 6 months before she can file final docs making the divorce official. The 6-month mark hits this weekend, so Vanessa could end the marriage as early as Monday … but we know she won’t.

Now here’s the deal. We’re told Kobe and Vanessa have had their ups and downs since she filed for divorce … and there’s nothing stopping her from filing final divorce papers at some point in the future if things don’t work out.

One more thing. If Kobe and Vanessa end up living together … it will be in one of her 3 mansions, because he signed over all the deeds to her while they were working out divorce details.

These two have been married for 11 years, they met when Vanessa just a senior in high school and Kobe was 21. She knew he was cheating again this time around, we even heard who the other woman was. She filed for divorce, got $75 million and all three of his mansions, and now she’s got his attention back from his side pieces (as far as she knows). Being Kobe’s wife and mother to his kids is the only job she’s had (not that being a mom isn’t a full time job for normal non filthy-rich people, you know what I mean) and I’ll be damned if she’s not exceptionally good at it. Look at how she got his attention and half his stuff. Who’s the player now?

Here are Kobe and Vanessa at a Los Angeles Kings vs. Vancouver Canucks NHL playoff game on 4-15-12. Look at her bitch face! These two are also shown in 2009 and 2011 with their girls. Credit: FameFlynet and

    • johnnybadboytapia says:

      i was just thinkin that…she has two little girls to be an example for. ( im not saying that he isnt a good dad i dont know, i think u can seperate the two) but is this how she wants her daughters to grow up thinking its okay to have a guy cheat on you all the time.. oh wait its okay as long as u get a big payday!

  2. Tifygodess24 says:

    Are those ginormous nipples trying to escape from her dress in the first pic? I didn’t need that first thing this morning …..

  3. Hautie says:

    Oh please.

    Make no mistake. She sooner die that let someone else be Mrs. Bryant.

    Vanessa is not about to let someone else take her place, in that arena, on game day.

    I feel sorry for the other players wife’s who can’t stand her. They are never going to be rid of her till he retires.

    (BTW: Those are some big ugly fake boobs in that picture above. If you are going to buy a set, at least buy the best ones possible. That don’t look like sloppy, cheap.. hooker boobs.)

    She’s a gold diggers dream. She will make a lot of money if she was to write a how to manual about gold digging the right way.

    That first photo is kind of hilarious.

    He must have gotten something else she wants. There’s no other reason to go back to him, she knows he’s a perpetual cheater. These two were too young, too indulged with all that money, and don’t know anything about respecting themselves or each other. Sad for their kids.

  6. mel2 says:

    Another plastic surgery pooker lip Kim K wannabe. Kobe will be cheatin on her as soon as he’s back on the road next season.

    OK, first of all, there’s a 6 month MINIMUM to finalising a divorce in Cali. And that’s from the date of filing until an agreement is reached and a judge signs off on it.

    Second of all, if anything is contested or not agreed upon, a whole shitload of other stuff comes into play. Who gets the kids? Has visitation been decided and/or agreed upon? Do we need a Psych Eval? Do we need to send you to CFS to determine custody/visitation? Who filed what? How much is child support? Is it being paid? Is there a cause for alimony? How much? Do both parties agree to these terms?

    (See, I know this shit because I’ve been through it. And my “simple” little divorce could have been done in 6 months, but it took 3 YEARS to finalise!!!)

    • MW says:

      It’s actually six months from date of service on the responding party, I believe. I think you can get the divorce finalized in six months no matter what, if you need to, and bifurcate the financial issues, for instance, and wait to settle that even after the divorce itself is finalized. Therefore, I can’t understand why I read Katy Perry’s divorce is coming up final so quick. She must have filed in CA, so why are there reports saying she filed 2-3 months ago and it’s almost a done deal. Mayebe the tabs counted wrong and their big blow-up/split did occur around Christmas, which is almost 6 mos. now.

  8. Chinny says:

    She looks exactly like Kim K in the 3rd picture… it’s scary! Maybe they have the same plastic surgeon lol

  9. Eve says:

    He’s a repulsive rat-faced prick. This bitch’s got a strong stomach.

  10. mel says:

    I give them credit for continuing to try to work it out and they don’t trash their dirty laundry all over TMZ and Radar. I for one and rooting for them.

  11. Crystal says:

    LOL. He probably wants to work it out because he thought it’d be cheaper to keep her. She’s not having any of it.
    More power to her though…get that money !!!

  12. Sarah says:

    Oh man, my sister saw Kobe and Vanessa and their kids at Disneyland a few weeks ago and she said that Kobe was all over Vanessa trying to put his arm around her and hug her and she was NOT HAVING IT.

  13. Kim says:

    She is as addicted to the fame as she is the money. Without Kobe there arent red carpet parties etc. She is staying with him for the fame & her hopes he will land her her own reality show. He wont. No one cares about or is interested in her. And no way would she have another girl being photographed with him/getting media attention if he started dating after divorce. It would kill her to lose that attention & see someone else be Mrs Bryant. She is addicted the limelight big time. I think he is staying with her to avoid a tell all.

  14. Izzy says:

    Maybe now that she has all that money, she can get a stylist, because her style is FUG-LY!!!

  15. Emma says:

    All that money won’t buy her peace of mind or happiness. But I think she’s making the best of her situation being married to him. That’s what it means to be Mrs. Kobe Bryant and she’s making her choice for better or worse. He will never change though. Cheating is in his blood.

  16. Benny says:

    I’m glad they’re still together. He’s a world-class d!ck, and she’s a trashy ho — being married to each other saves two other innocent people who might otherwise have married them. So I am rooting for their marriage to work.

  17. bubbles says:

    … and now she is coming back for the other half.

  18. jesstar says:

    She’s probably getting her kicks making him squirm. She must hate him by now. He should probably be on alert for any recent increases to his life ins. limits.
