Kobe Bryant Wife

Scores BIG in Divorce

1/20/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Vanessa Bryants HousesKobe Bryant's wife Vanessa is the big winner in their divorce property settlement ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the couple and with direct knowledge of the situation tell TMZ ... the property settlement agreement is signed, sealed and delivered -- a done deal.

Vanessa is walking away with $75 million, which we're told represents close to half of their total assets, estimated at around $150 million.

TMZ previously reported several transfers of property earlier this year between Kobe and Vanessa.  It turns out, based on the property settlement, Vanessa scored a clean sweep, snagging ALL THREE of the former couple's mansions in the Newport Beach area.

Vanessa gets the estate the couple was living in, the estate her mom is living in, and she gets the new estate that had been under construction for 2 years and was just completed.  We were told Kobe was moving into the new estate, but that's not true.  It's Vanessa's crib, lock stock and barrel.

Vanessa just scored 3 ... where it counts.

Fvk her and all the women across this country who are incapable of feeding themselves and have to resort from huge welfare checks from their ex husbands. Get a vasectomy and bang em all with NO worries.

Her and her mother will both be broke in a few years and lose it all... Ridiculous taxes and upkeep on that stuff.

Strange that so many people here are getting emotional defending a rapist, simply because he can play basketball.

Mehhh, let's see how long the c*nt holds up the houses. Chances are she will waste the divorce settlement right quick, cant pay minimum expenses/mortgages/property tax on the properties over time, and then have to sell from being bankrupt. I'd say within 3-4 yrs... What happens when you're a gold digging bitch without no skills for income. #Truth!!

Once Vanessa convinced him to buy that big azz house for her mom, I bet that's when everything went south for them. She and her mom saw Kobe as their meal ticket out of whatever poverty they were living in. 10 years from now, they'll both be destitute.

I still don't understand how Half is fair. She has never worked a day in her life has maids and nanny's but she gets half of what he made because they got married. Sounds fair.

And Koby didn't score big? Why does TMZ always pick on the wife in a celebrity divorce--except when the woman is the bigger star with more money?

OK - She gets $75 mil and the three houses. That money will be gone in just a couple years to pay the property taxes. The she will be on the street, unemployed with no job skills.
