Kobe Bryant

Hoping to Reconcile

... for the Sake of the Kids

12/24/2011 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant
Kobe Bryant has NOT given up on saving his marriage ... and sources close to the family tell us his two daughters are playing a major role in his effort to reconcile ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Kobe is "deeply depressed" over the situation -- and is very concerned about how his daughters will handle growing up in two separate households.

TMZ broke the story ... Vanessa decided to pull the plug after catching the NBA star in another extra-marital affair.

Sources tell us ... Bryant's family was not aware of Kobe's exploits -- but they hope he and Vanessa can find a way to get along in the future ... if only for the sake of the kids.

I'm sure his depression is treatable with a few hundred more casual-sex encounters with women.

If his wife is truly 29, then she was about 18 or 19 when they married - young enough to be dazzled by him and also young enough to start over in her life.

I've read that she treats their staff very demeaningly - maybe she's been in a bad mood since she figured out that she married a chronically promiscuous man.

I guess even famous rich guys face a consequence to their actions once in a while. He'll get over it, consoled by countless avaricious, horney dames.

Oh yeah he's so concerned now after she left his cheating a** and is going to rape him in divorce court. Where was the big concern for his girls when he was sleeping with groupies all across the country? Did he ever once consider the fact he could give his daughters' mother and STD or AIDS?

Vanessa, girl, take the money and have a nice life with your children.

You don't stay in a marriage where someone is abusing you. If he cannot stop sleeping with other women, why stay together to teach two young impressionable girls to stay with a man who abuses you mentally and emotionally with serial cheating?

If anything is done for the "sake" or best interest of their two young girls, it would be to teach their girls to not stay with a man who disrespects you and sleeps around with other women, even after you forgave and tried to trust him again when he first was caught doing it.

If Kobe and Vanessa really care about their children, they will end this marriage, and teach their girls to not tolerate spousal abuse of ANY kind, including chronic cheating, or cheating period.

Kobe should have thought about the kids BEFORE he went on his cheating marathon. Vanessa would be a fool to take him back because of the kids especially after finding out about the # of women he's had and kids are not stupid, they will know something is up. He played now it's time to pay.

Don't do it girl... If he cared that much about his kids, he wouldn't be trying to bang different chicks every night, especially after getting away with rape a few years ago. He always looks like he has a puss on his face, just drop his tired ass !!!

People keep saying she is such a mean person and antisocial. Maybe she is antisocial because everyone knows her husband is cheating on her and are talking about it. How humiliating. Although this has been going on for a while, and thats only what is publicized.
