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.

What took her so long? MONEY. She's just as evil as he is for doing it. She made her bed for MONEY and it is what it is.

Vanessa was just too much woman for Kobe. In the end, he proved he didn't have the character and commitment of a man that truly loves his family and the institution it represents. All these guys should just do like Derek Jeter and not get married.

my buddy's ex-wife makes $80 hourly on the laptop. She has been out of a job for 9 months but last month her check was $8522 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Here's the site to read more... LazyCash4.com

Adultery destroys families. It destroys lives. It is a leading cause of domestic violence, including murder and suicide. Men who want to pursue multiple women need to GET SINGLE and STAY SINGLE. No one has the right to torment their spouse and children with a cheater's lies, disrespect, disease and neglect, no matter how successful or high-status they are in their careers. Be married or be single. Pick one. It is unspeakably selfish and cruel to try to be both.

Time for Gloria Alred to come out of the woodwork with another "poor abused girl"...

For some reason, this revelation is not as racy as those connected with Tiger Woods. I guess it's because we kind of expected this kind of behavior from Kobe based on his rape allegation 5 years ago, which led us to believe it was just the tip of the ice berg.

200 million? Not bad pay for a high school graduate. Spread those legs and wait out the infidilities for a few years until your lawyers say you're good to go and then CHING CHING? Life should be so easy for the rest of us.

Is it just me or does anyone think of the dangers involved with cheating in a marriage? Like when Jessie cheated on Sandra, the risk he was putting her at! IMO (especailly if the cheaters have kids in the marriage) its the danger you put your partner in when you cheat. STD's. What if the cheater gets HIV/AIDS and passes it on to the spouse (which they're probably not using condoms) and they have kids. Its so selfish...I don't get it. Is it really worth it? When you cheat like that you're doing so much more than having sex with another person. thats imo

honesty    

Are any men truly faithful? Can men truly be in love? Do any of them take their vow to God seriously? This woman was absolutely gorgeous. He did not cheat on her because she let herself go. He has two children. I do not understand. Is it impossible for men to be a soul mate, to be a best friend, to be a partner, and be committed to an honest relationship?

Well Vanessa, if you made yourself more available to Kobe maybe he wouldn't of cheated. You need to spread your legs and your lips more often. You should even provide him access to your buttocks since your va jay jay is probably wider than the grand canyon.
