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.

All the Vanessa Hate and jealousy is wrong. Its called MARRIAGE. Its the LAW. If these mega stars do not want to pay up & know they cannot be faithful, then DON'T GET MARRIED. Kobe has azz cheated for years and it caught up with him. Its KOBE's own fault! By the way, celebrity women have had to ante up as well so it goes both ways!!

You are a bigger idiot than Super Al. Odds against black men? Black folks are their own worst enemy! All Kobe had to do was honor his wedding vow and be faithful and a decent husband. But the little head went nuts and now the big head has to pay. Kudos to Vanessa and I hope she gets even more!!

I hear you guys loud and clear. However, I don't think she needs three homes...that is just ridiculous, and to say she will be broke in a few years? ummmmm...what about the "child support" she won't be broke...she is no dumb mexican!

Are you trying cheer on this as if it were good news? This is the breaking down of America where people get or lose money simply because they got married. This ought to be a sad event...

We saw how Kobe struggled to get to where he is .. and to say that hos wife deserves half the property is sad.

We look forward to the day when these laws will be changed in America.

That's why these ridiculously stupid celebrities, particularly athletes, have nothing to show for all the $ they made in their career & go bankrupt in a short period of time. How would he not have a pre-nup? If he was that dumb not to, he now has to hand over half of his blood,sweat & tears. No matter if he cheated.

Every rich person and celebrity is going to have to turn to prostitution because they are way cheaper. Divorce laws are stupid...

She is a role model to all young women these days, marry a rich guy, let him cheat on you because you are going to stick around for 10 years and cash it in bc you have zero self esteem and can whore yourself out after, or young girls, you could go the kardashian route, be a slut your whole life and then make a porn video and then let your mom whore you out and make money off of you

Well I guess she hit the jack pot, but maybe Bryant wanted that to finally get rid of her, so he can be free to be a man whore. I mean he still wealthy as ever. He didn't really loose everything. I mean if I was him I would start making porn to show how happy I was for the divorce. lol http://www.innocentdiary56ace.com/2012/01/where-will-she-live-kobe-bryants-wife.html
