Looks like the winds of divorce have been swirling over the Bryant home for some time now.
According to TMZ, reports have surfaced that Kobe has long moved out of the Califonia mansion he shared with wife of 10 year, Vanessa.
Kobe Bryant has already moved out of his MASSIVE Newport Coast mansion … permanently — because TMZ has learned Vanessa gets the estate in the couple’s divorce.
Kobe purchased the sprawling Orange County property back in 2001. As part of the divorce settlement, Kobe agreed to give up the property
As we reported last night, Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, has had enough and has filed for divorce. Citing “irreconcilable differences,” the one time high school cheerleader has had enough with Kobe’s cheating ways.
According to TMZ,
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.
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.
And the worst part for Kobe is that there is NO PRE-NUP!
Kobe and Vanessa were allegedly battling a paternity suit after Kobe was served with “mysterious papers” after a game early this year. According to TerezOwnes.com Vanessa was so worried about Kobe’s behavior during All Star Weekend, after hearing the news, that she banned female cocktail waitresses from his VIP area at an All-Star after-party.
“Right around the time Tiger Woods was involved in his whole affair mess, a girl Kobe was mixed up with earlier in the year gave birth to his ‘alleged’ child…Kobe paid for her to live in Italy for the last year..She’s returned to the states and is now seeking legal rights.”
