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.

Vanessa is a super C*NT and everyone in L.A. hates her. I wouldn't be surprised if they fed her bogus info just because they hate her so much.
Not taking Kobe's side, because everyone knows he's a cheating dog, I'm just saying. No one likes Vanessa. At all.

I think everybody is over it. Big deal, Kobe wasn't some goody-goody Tiger Woods, no need to call a press conference to "apologize" or anything. These days, we expect it's only a matter of time before married people get a divorce.

Marriage contracts should last two years, save on divorce, if you don't want to be married anymore, don't renew your contract.

I'm sorry but these marriages aren't really about love. It's a business deal...for most of the women anyways. Of course, they are going to keep each other informed of their husbands infidilities. What better ammo is there in divorce court to take half of these ballers incomes? No I'm not justifying cheating but lets be honest here. Gold diggin hoes drivin me crazy I can take it no mo!

Every guy knows you NEVER, EVER, tell the wife, girl friend, what ever ANYTHING about another guy's side-action (unless that other guy is eying your girl, in which case you want to make him out to be a total dawg)! Maybe there are different rules down in the hood?

I can't help but think that it's possible these guys blabbed to make them better in their wives eyes. "See honey, Kobe cheated, I don't." No man can possibly be stupid enough to think that telling a hen who hangs out with all the others in the henhouse wouldn't peck to get to be the head hen with the "best" husband. These chicks thrive on internal competition.

When women come together and work for and with each other it's amazing what can be done! It's no surprise with Kobe; but if the other women helped with the evidence and got her brain straight; she should take him to the cleaners; after all she stood by him in the Colorado scandal. Power to the V!

Sounds like he was doing layups and slam dunks off the court, has been caught and fouled out. No more free throws for him.

Ah, but do they pass word back to the husbands when they are ******* the paperboy? I think not. Let's face it, for the most part, these women really have no skills other than the ones on their chest and between their legs. Make sure you know what your husband is doing and more important, make sure they never find out what you're doing. #S_L_orewives
