Were you shocked to hear Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa file for divorce? Yeah, neither were we, but apparently although she’s known about several affairs throughout the year, the most recent one is the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Kobe was “very recently” caught doing the nasty with another woman and was caught red handed by Vanessa. According to TMZ, the source wouldn’t confirm just how he was caught, but it was not through text message. So did she walk in on him? We need details people!
She’s obviously caught him with multiple women throughout the years, but this specific affair was the breaking point.
She filed for divorce on December 1, 2011, citing the usual “Irreconcilable differences.” Kobe signed his response on December 7. The couple confirmed the split to The Insider saying, "We ask that in the interest of our young children and in light of the upcoming holiday season, the public respect our privacy during this most difficult time."
So what’s going to happen to his massive fortune considering the fact that they DO NOT have a prenup? He’s already agreed to give her spousal support and they’ve reportedly already figured out their financial situation. Boring.
She was legally entitled to half of his $140 million dollar fortune but I’m assuming a few mil a year in spousal support alone will do. Long story short: aside from sketchy details about how he got caught, don’t expect any drama in court over money.
