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.

If anyone should get half of Kobe's money it should be Shaq. After all, Shaq won more than half of Kobe's championships for him.

the 3 houses are probably the bulk of the settlement, doesn't she realize, now she, not Kobe will pay for the taxes and upkeep? My guess is she spends herself out of most of it in 10 years. She'll be broke, right around the time he stops paying child support.

This day and age...your comments are ignorant at best.... Stop using the excuse of the WHITE MAN holding the BLACK MAN down..... I will agree that there is still racism out there today that is for sure.... But you want to blame everything on the white man and not the individuals who use every excuse in the book to point out as to why they are still unemployed or in prison. There are PLENTY of African American people are are very successful without the help of sports..... And please stop with your OWN racial comment about a Mexican hood rat... Kobe cheated on his wife.. WTF do you want her to do? Wise up....

Tons of people have blown through huge sums of money, and this azzhole will be no different. She WILL end up broke. It may take 20 years or so, but this shiat for brains, with no education, and no life skills beside driving to Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza to blow wads of money, will squander this money like the dumb shiat that she is.

Kobe didn't commit adultery in 2003. He raped a woman. The criminal case was dropped due to death threats, invasion of privacy, harrassment, etc.. In a civil hearing Kobe was found guilty and in a statement he admitted that the "SEX" may not have been consensual. That's rape least you forgot or choose to.

I believe that everyone here is missing the true point. There is NO WAY she should get all three houses just because she was his wife. She should be entitled to one of the homes for the sake of the children and move the hell on with her life. Kobe is not the true culprit here, there is more to this story than meets the eye. What is this woman's track record ? Has she been a 'saint' throughout their marriage ? I but that no one has investigated this.

Come on guys. It is fair that she gets half, because Kobe breached the marriage. He's the one that had extramarital affairs, not her. She stuck in there with him for most of those affairs. She didn't have to do that. Eventually, it just turned into pure disrespect. I wish her and him well.

She may not have shot those freethrows, but she's the one watching the kids and maintaining their homes while he's off ****ing the help. He publicly humiliated her multiple times, not to mention putting her health in jeopardy ****ing around with sluts. Marriage is not for people who can't control their sexual urges, and Kobe made a dumb decision by getting married when he knew what he was about. Now he gotta pay. BUT WTF is up with the mother in law getting a house. Thats just dumb. he should've been able to keep one of these homes.

Don't know why everyone is mad at her. He is the one that messed up his family and has been held accountable for what he did. Yes she earned EVERY penny living with that unfaithful JERK.

Wow, $75 million and 3 mansions and all she had to do was to stand by a rapist and a cheat for 10 years! Hmmm... Apparently karma comes in the form of divorce for Kobe. I wonder what it's going to be for Vanessa? Another cheating jock boyfriend maybe?

Kobe's wife shoulda received 1 home, let her mom move with her and the kids and sell the mother's home, let that money go towards the total settlement after that home was sold, and the total settlement shoulda been around 20 mil not 75. Being a homemaker is job but when u living the high life like them im pretty sure there wasnt much work is ever done. The system is all for women. But at the same time Kobe is ahole for not getting a prenup, and who was his attorney. SHDM
