Kobe Bryant and Vanessa

Horse Trade Houses

in Divorce

Kobe Bryant and Vanessa are well on their way to becoming single ... because we’ve learned Kobe has already transferred title on two of his mansions over to his soon-to-be ex-wife.

TMZ has checked official records ... which show on January 5th, Kobe surrendered his interest in 2 of their estates to Vanessa ... on that same day Vanessa surrendered her interest in a 3rd home to Kobe. 

As far as who got what ... the title transfers don't list addresses, but our sources say Vanessa is now the full owner of the mansion she shared with Kobe in Newport Coast. As for the second home Vanessa now owns in full ... it's the nearby mansion where her mother has been living.

We’re told the estate Vanessa fully deeded to Kobe is the one currently under construction – also in Newport Coast.

TMZ broke the story ... Vanessa filed for divorce from Kobe on Dec 16th.

Although we heard rumblings of a possible reconciliation ... the property transfers make it seem the divorce is going full throttle.

Kobe's rep, Michael Sitrick, had no comment.

Ah, the life of the rich and famous and the family members who get a free ride too. Nice McMansion the MIL has been living in. Would love to see the digs that Kobe's parents have that Kobe paid for. Or could it be that only Vanessa's family took advantage of the Kobe train?

And this is why white women are his preference? I sure hope his parents have a mansion, but I doubt it. He's just that stupid.

On the other hand, Kobe's parents look like 2 hippies.. here they were a year ago in Tokyo. Evacuated after the earthquake and Tsunami hit Japan. WTF... his mom looks like Kelly Rowland at 70... hahhaa. Yea, they definitely dont live in a house like Vanessa's gold digging mom, just sayin...

"Horse trade" isn't a synonym for "trade", or in this case "forfeit ownership of", which is what they're doing.

I'm trying to figure out why her old azz mom needs all of that. Let's not forget her mom is still getting alimony checks from her ex. I remember when he wasn't even talking to his parents, or maybe it was just his father, so I know they don't have anything.

She absolutly deserve every penny she gets in spite of never thrown a freethrow. She deserves more than half. infedelity is devastating. I don't think it is an addiction anymore than taking a bath versus taking a shower. having sex with his wife was no longer good enough. Selfish, lying snake. She needs to get herself out of that life while she is young and beautiful so she can find someone devoted. It's good that he will be living close by but, if she don't leave him, eventually he is going to leave her for some random chick. Too many women have turned out bitter trying to hold their family together. Leave now while you can get the kind of man you want. Ill bet if he had told the truth that he had no interest in manogamy she would have moved on.
