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.

Shouldn't he have considered the kids every time he cheated on his wife?

Hindsight is always 20/20 but in this case, common sense should've taken place before the cheating. Dumbass.

I guess it would be too much for the adulterer's family to speak the truth to him, eh? No, it's always "they have to find a way to get along" when he can't keep it in his pants. So let me offer help. "Son, keep it in your #$#$%$#*$*%$ pants, you #$#$#$%^. Those are your $#$#$W# kids you're messing with when you cheat on their mother all the time."

There ya go.

He wasn't thinking of his daughters when he was with other woman. Girls get over no Dad quicker than boys. Divorce him. Don't let him guilt you out of it. Move forward with divorce. He wanted to have both, other women and a family. Doesn't work that way.

Remember, we're talking about the same piece of punk thug trash who ANALLY raped a woman in 2003, then turns around and spouts homophobic slurs on the basketball court. The smartest thing to do for the kids, Vanessa, is to go for FULL CUSTODY so they don't turn into little homophobic hypocrites like dirtbag daddy!

It's always use the kids as money pawns. Kids are not stupid.


Bryant, no doubt loves his 2 little girls. He should take his girls to the locker room and say hey, this is Daddys job. Mom and Dad, whatever, IS TOTALLY SEPERATE. NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR KIDS. Again, completly seperate.


Mom and Dads fight all the time, that's between them. Not their kids.

Kobe Bryant is a very proud man of color & it's good to see him doing the right thing. Vanessa should be honored that Kobe even graces her presence let alone is married to her. We now will see if Vanessa is faithful & willing to stand by her man or in it for the money like Elin.

He should have thought about his kids before he fooled around. What is it with people who seem to have it all but still aren't satisfied? Sorry Kobe but I think you've cooked your Christmas goose.
