Kobe Bryant

Not as Rich as You Think

12/17/2011 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1216_kobebryant_getty_EXTMZ has learned ... contrary to news reports about Kobe Bryant's wealth -- the BBaller's net worth is approximately $150 million, according to sources in a direct position to know.

Sources intimately familiar with the situation tell us ... the $150 mil accounts for real estate holdings, stock, cash and other assets.

The figure is far less than news reports which set Kobe's fortune north of $400 million.  But the $150 mil figure is the accurate one.

TMZ broke the divorce story and the fact that Kobe and Vanessa DO NOT HAVE A PRENUP.   Given that the marriage has lasted more than a decade and the pre-marriage assets are commingled with what was accumulated during the marriage, the assets are distributed based on the community property laws of California -- which means a 50/50 split.

Kobe and Vanessa have already struck a financial settlement, but she was in a good position to get half of the pie.

Kobe could find an alternative solution to avoid any kind of settlement.

You know, it's really none of my business how much money they have. I'm just sorry their marriage didn't work out.

Kobe Bryant Not as Rich as You Think and on the Verge of being half of that... to the IDIOTS who say he should have had a prenup... yes, there's those insignificant others who's in it for the the money but none of this had to happen if Kobe didn't feel he had to mark every woman who meets. This is not the ghetto, in civil society we believe in monogamy, men are faithful to their spouse they father their kids--they're not sperm donor, baby daddy--hey' "I'm gonna jump on that". I hope THAT was worth, at the very least, $75,000,000. Those booty calls most have been some crazy sessions with that or he thought his wife was stupid and was going to keep turning a blind eye or he's a REALLY good BS'er!!! Kobe and most of those basketball/football dudes can't be a woman man. They will always need to poke a chick to prove he's all that [fragile egos] and the older they get, the worse it'll get after the glory fades because they'll have to prove they're still a stud [vicious circle]

And thats the truth    

Yeah right. I will bet that he "only has $150 million". He probably wants his wife to think so when in reality it is closer to $400 million.
