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.

For the girls sake it would be great if there dad could grow up and stop acting like he has never seen a woman before. Of course self control can be hard but that is not what life is all about. Family is important

RUN Vanessa RUN! Kobe is too arrogant and HE WILL cheat again and again. Take his money and run to Victor Ortiz! You all would make a beautiful couple. Some black men think that white,latin,asian and all other races accept black women(who are branded as bitter and difficult) are easy and naive. He should have thought about his wife and kids prior to his infidelity! He should have taken a page from Tiger Woods's book.

Typical NBA player. Cheats constantly on his wife then wants everyone to feel sorry for him. Ghetto loser. Once a cheater always a cheater.

No, Mr. Bryant should have first thought about the consequences every time he decided to have each of his several affairs.

Its a little late to be caring what and how the kids will feel. He should of thought of that when he was sleeping with all those other women. Now since vanessa will get most of his money now he wants to be concerned how the kids will feel bouncing from parent to parent
