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.

Kobe has been an a****** since his days at Lower Merion High School.He should have gone to college,played college basketball before he went pro.I blame his parents for that He should have never married or became someone's father so young.Blame his other brain for that. Now he's going to pay.No one to blame but himself for that Maybe he'll learn this time.

If you only went by what you see in the media you would think black men have no control over their libidos and egos. I mean, my goodness. Keep it in your pants gentleman.

FIrst off...Anyone who marries an athlete or a celeb should know this comes with the territory. (a few good ones out there but they are the 1%) If not you have been sleeping under a rock. Now you have to ask yourself are you looking for love or a lifestyle you have to choose wisely.

Why did anybody have to TELL Vanessa that Kobe was cheating? Come on now. After the incident in 2002 with the white chick at the hotel? That did't tell you anything Vanessa? You know damn well he did that ****! Then you should have just been prepared because you married an arrogant ****y ass basketball player. Not all of them are like that. But girl you married Kobe Bryant. Why divorce him though? I wouldn't!

Everyone is putting Kobe Bryant on the bad side, but they act like he is the only one who does that. He is a famous athlete and KOBE BRYANT at that. She should not be surprised at all honestly. And everyone who put his buisness out there is pretty shady. They should have let them handle it on their own and also she should not have just straight threw the divorce papers out at em right away. There marriage has 2 kids involved and I Don't believe she have thought about it first instead of having the divorce out there like that out in the public eye. ( Yes I was mad, not I'm good ! )

Well, now we know why the Lakers traded Lamar, who is married to Khloe, who is the sister to Kim, whose friend was banging Kobe. Kim told Khloe and Khloe blabbed to all the other Laker wives, and Kobe got pissed and demanded they trade Lamar. So now, the Clippers roll the Lakers last night and that ends the Laker dynasty for a while, thanks Kobe.

And these NBA wives who ratted on Kobe don't think their Laker husbands are messing around on them? Probably the only NBA player who hasn't cheated on his wife is Humphries and that's because he was only married 72 days.

Vanessa does not know that Kobe represents an entity in the basketball arena, and is representative of a man with a greater degree of freedom relative to his identical brothers that also participate in the NBA.
