Kobe Bryant

Cheated with 'Multiple Women'

12/18/2011 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant
Kobe Bryant
's wife Vanessa caught the NBA star "very recently" in the latest act of infidelity, and that is why she filed for divorce ... sources directly connected with the couple tell TMZ.

Our sources would not tell us how Vanessa caught Kobe, but we do know it was NOT through text messages a la Tiger Woods.

We're told Vanessa had caught Kobe with "multiple women" over the years ... but his latest affair was the straw that broke the camel's back ... and she felt she needed to finally end the marriage.

What's ironic ... is that Vanessa still loves Kobe -- but she just can't stand his infidelities anymore.

There's a problem here    

RE:Comment #11 - If Kobe was so proud of his race why did he take on a golddigger who kept trying to "white it up."? If Tiger was a "proud man of color" as you say, he would have been proud to have a woman of the same "color." Instead he went for the blonde. I was married to a blonde. They're not that big of a deal. Trust me.

I can't believe the posts on here that are defending this dirt bag. After she stood by him when he committed rape, and then he continues to cheat?? He is a PIG, pig!! Oh, he is GREAT example for his kids, what a jackass!!!!

I'm glad she is divorcing him---she deserves better than this. I have no doubt she will go on to have an incredible life without him.

Some women need to be streeeeeeetched...if you know what I mean. Some dudes just do not have to try, women through themselves at them with no pride.

It's not hard to figure out women, it's all about ego and power. Doesn't matter that you're gorgeous, these guys like him, Tiger, etc. will cheat. Marry a down to earth guy who worships you and isn't in a power job. But then again, it's a double edged sword, cause most women want money.

TMZ has a habit of getting the story behind the headline so I wonder if there is any validity to the "rumor" of why this particular episode was the last straw. The rumor is that Kobe was spending both time and "money" on this latest woman...more like a long term mistress versus just some groupie. Some one already mentioned her name, playboy model Jessica Burciaga. Since so many male athletes, actors etc. seem to love attending parties at the playboy mansion, this relationship may have been too public or known around town for Vanessa to tolerate....that is IF the rumor is true.

Good for her!!!!
I like Kobe but that cheating is disgusting and sooo disrespectful. Now he can be a single hound dog all he wants without the security of a nice home life. Sorry Kobe.... oh well.

I don't feel bad for her, she stayed with him after a rape charge. She's supposed to be a nasty piece of work, sued by her maid for being a "horrible person". I'm sure she is.

They don't have a pre-nup. By California law as a community property state she is entitled to half of everything.

It's his own stupid fault. No way he didn't know it would end up like this.

What's ironic about loving your husband? SMH.

Once in a while, it would be great if TMZ would just report on a story and move on, instead of beating the story to death, over and over and over.

Maybe spend a little time you regularly spend regurgitating the same news, and deal with some of this spam instead.

Page after page of spam. Inexcusable.
