Kobe Bryant

Busted by Basketball Wives

12/19/2011 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe & Vanessa Bryant
A secret underground society of trained spies is responsible for feeding intel to Vanessa Bryant that eventually led to her filing for divorce from hubby Kobe Bryant -- not the CIA or FBI ... but the basketball wives of the NBA.

Our sources says Kobe's teammates were blabbing to their women about the superstar's exploits ... and those women in turn gave Vanessa the heads up.  We're told talk of Kobe's exploits lately increased in frequency.

According to our sources, the players often swear their wives to secrecy before dishing on their fellow ballers ... but that secrecy is rarely kept. We're told the women all share information about other guys around the league ... in part to ensure word will get back to them if their man ever steps out.

As TMZ first reported, Vanessa filed divorce papers on Friday, after Vanessa learned of what she says is an act of infidelity that became the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.

I think it was right of the other wives to tell Vanessa, even if it was not their business. She should have the heads up that he is screwing around, so she can get checked for diseases, but also so she can find someone to can be faithful to her, like she had been for him. N What a s***bag for bragging to all his friends like his shhh don't stink.

Good for them, that these women told Vanessa the truth, one that her husband was keeping from her. Pretty sick that he was bragging to his basketball buddies (some friends they are if they went along with his infidelities or are as guilty as Kobe is) Glad the women exposed him for the weak little POS he is.

These basketball players (Rodman, Jordan, Kobe, Shaq, etc) all of these serial sports cheaters are disgusting pigs. They take their fame and fortune and then think they are all that, to where they destroy their families because they lack the control to keep it in their pants?

These NBA cats need to learn one lesson when it comes to the extramarital affairs of their buddies:

S.T.F.U.

If you wouldn't want anyone blabbing on you, then don't blab about anyone else.

STRAIGHT COLD BLOODED. Now that's more believable because all they do is gossip and talk about each other. Basketball wives and VH1 is just shady all together but still no women has come forward and said anything. Random ho's normally would be dying for this attention.

Since Kobe doesn't respect her, it's best Vanessa divorce him. Now he can have all the sexual exploits he wants. Perhaps sexual exploits not as much fun when he's not cheating on his wife? The Basketball wives did nothing wrong. If the husbands want to cheat, then they should pay the price. Cheaters should just stay single!

It is so sad that this is actually happening and my simplest advice to Vanessa is; there is no better man anywhere in the world or on this planet earth and I hope that she has thought deeply about this move. And to her friends who have caused that, what you do unto others shall be done unto you someday as it is always a matter of time.
