Vanessa Bryant has filed for divorce from her husband of 10 1/2 years, Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant. She filed divorce papers Friday afternoon citing “irreconcilable differences.” Sources claim that Vanessa stuck by Kobe after the 2003 incident where he was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado woman, but has decided to end the marriage after suspecting him of being unfaithful again.
One source states that “she’s been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she’s finally had enough. This is the one straw that broke the camel’s back.”
According to the legal documents, Vanessa is asking for joint custody of their two daughters, 5-year-old Giana and 8-year-old Natalia, but wants Kobe to have full visitation rights. She is also requesting spousal support, in which Kobe has agreed to provide.
There is word that the couple signed no Prenup, therefore Vanessa is entitled to half of Kobe’s empire. Hopefully this doesn’t get ugly. Thus far the two have released a statement saying, “they have resolved all issues privately with the assistance of counsel.”
