Kobe Bryant Divorce

Vanessa Gets the Mansion, Kobe Gets the Boot

12/17/2011 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryants Mansion now belongs to 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. TMZ broke the story, the couple had NO prenup ... which means Vanessa is entitled to half of EVERY DOLLAR Kobe made since they were married ten years ago. 

It's unclear where Kobe is living at the moment.

Mansion BS is just that... a BS trophy. Nobody needs that much space. Who are these people trying to impress?

It must be shocking waking up one day with $200 mil ( because apparently that's his net worth - http://cel­ebrityinc.­com/net-wo­rth/athlet­es/kobe-br­yant/) , than sliced all of a sudden to $100, that may affect his game more than the divorce.

@JACKIE:

NUTS! DONT YOU THINK VANESSA HAS HER MONTHLY SPOUSAL PAYOUT INCLUDE THE COST OF MAINTAINING EVERYTHING?? WONT BE SURPRISED IF SHE GETS MORE THAN TIGER'S BABYMAMA LOCK, STOCK, AND BARREL. NO DOUBT SHE WILL GET AN EASY 30-40 MIL CASH/EQUITY UP FRONT. THE INTEREST ALONE PAYS FOR EVERYTHING NOT INCLUDING THE CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS. #TRUTH!!

She should have let Kobe keep that, the taxes are going to be too high for her as the years pass and she burns through her settlement. Plus, she'll have a hard time selling the house for what it's worth.

Why does she need an inside basketball court?

Their announcement said they had already agreed to financial terms privately, so why does TMZ keep hyping the no-prenup angle?
