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.

She is a classic gold-digger and it won't take long before the properties are on the market because she won't be able to afford the taxes which I'm sure are ridiculously expensive. That would interfere with her jewelry and clothes budget. 10 years from now she'll be broke and latching on to the next NBA Sucker!

This is Kobe's fault, 1000% This is why you don't get married at 21! Let alone the fact that you knew you were gonna make a lot of money and did not get a pre-nup!! He deserves to shell out every last penny. DUMBASS (E.G. Eddie Murphy RAW)

I wounder if she will be able to pay the property tax on these, i mean she doesn't work. I'm sure she will get spousal support and child support for the girls but..the way she spent his money all those years..and I'm sure she is not going to slow down. Oh she will find another rick man when she needs too if she hasn't by now.

Oh well! He should have secured himself prior to marrying her. I think it's crazy for him to have to pay money that he making before her. Yes, he should take care of the children but not her and her mother. She got three houses but she'll also have to maintain three houses! Any buyers...lol.

I think it's pretty sad that everyone is bashing on Vanessa, like she did wrong. She married a man, and had two children by him, if he wanted other woman, than he should have filed for a divorce and than did his thing. Vanessa sacrificed a lot, she had those beautiful babies, and raised them solo, while her husband was out on the road, not only doing basketball, but obviously all the woman he could as well... WY TO GO VANESSA!!!

Why is everybody all butt hurt? This was a marriage and in divorce isht gets split up. They do have 2 kids together, and ultimately the money will go to the kids. Who gives a **** if Kobe now has only $75 million, and will continue to make millions over his lifetime. Kobe cheated in the marriage and she is entitled to half their wealth. Not the first divorce in the US, get over it.

Divorce from Vanessa Bryant : 75 Million and Three estates lost.
Not having to deal with a nagging broad who does nothing besides sit around all day and complain, especially when your trying to win your 6th NBA ring so that you can make history like your idol : PRICELESS

I'm glad that Vanessa is walking away with half. He thought so much of her when he snagged her, dissing all other women. Stating, "anyone who thinks they have a chance, they don't." Well, as it turns out, over 110 women did have a chance. He is another self-loathing black man who thinks having a white woman is grand. He just like OJ, taking care of the entire family!! Another black man who made the made and gave it back to the white man!! White man capitalism at its finest!! He should have listened to his parents and family when they tried to tell him that she was nothing more than "poor white trash." I hope he has learned a valuable lesson: Stick with your own kind!!

People.... Kobe got off good. all he paid was $75 Million. he's made over $200 Million so FAR. not including his $90 million extention he JUST signed, and the other 100 mill he's made from endorsements. so if all she got was $75 Million and 3 houses. (2 are already paid off) then good for Kobe.

He was well warned before he married her from his family and others. I am really sick of these black athletes choosing non black partners. They still dont get the fact that these women only want them for their money. If they had no money they wouldnt look twice at them. Wise up brothers!
