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.

Seeing all these comments cheering the women is a bit disgusting. Not defending Kobe, but Vanessa is the dumb one to stay after he boinked the Denver chick for her $4 mill rock. But you all are excited over the girls telling on him - when their husbands asked them not to. They are going behind their husband's backs, even after promising NOT to, and gossiping about it. No one sees any problem with that trust being broken between those marriages because of Kobe's cheating marriage that is widely known about?

Kobe isn't exactly known to be "best buddies" with the other players so....I'm sure they knew "lose lips sink ships" and just waited for the reaction to the bomb they dropped (gossiped)when they shared with their wives. Just a guess.

Kobe like most ballers is part of the "sexual elite." He can get it any time, anywhere, from a lot of people. With no effort.

Like this artilce says: http://kissingup2.blogspot.com/#!/2011/12/sexual-elite.html

So ghetto. The basketball wives are trash, nothing more. All of them are divorced, or former ho's, from the players, have nothing else to do except go broke and talk smack. Kobe met this girl when she was 17, still in HS. I assume that he was forced to get into this "relationship" due to the fact that her family could, would, have pressed charges against him if he didn't consummate the relationship through marriage. Would have been a felony rape charge - under 18 in CA. I have heard this "lady" is a real beatch, who is extremely rude and hard to even deal with. She would have been a ghetto rat with a GED if Kobe didn't find her appealing.
