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.

Kobe, when you met her, she was a 17-year-old high-school Latina, givin' it up hot 'n juicy like there's no tomorrow. Bro, that changed the moment you MARRIED her. Then her vile FAMILY got in the mix, and you had to finance them too. I bet your gated-community, Newport Beach neighbors are just THRILLED having lowlife MEXICANS living down the street. hahahaha LMFAO, bro..... That bitch twisted your sh*t up but good, man. Luckily, you are now FREE!

I think VB is going to proceed with the divorce and then reconcile with KB. It gives her more control over her life. I think she stills loves him and wants to keep her family together. KB has just behaved so poorly. It's hard to take when you love someone, especially a first love.

I wonder why our economy sucks. Maybe because we pay a ball player with the money we should be using to open schools. Pay them well but not like this. Just my thought.

She should have divorced him years ago. He is also lucky that he got off so easily with the charges a few years ago in Colorado.

I want to see how he becomes obligated to pay for the maintenance and huge property taxes on her moms house now that he has no vested interest in it.

Even more so, I want to see how her mom pays for these things.
