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.

I thought divorce settlements are done only between husband and wife. How did the freaking MIL get a house even before coming to a settlement?

Your dumb as well I am guessing... Shaq did not win all those rings by himself.. He needed Horry, Fisher, Kobe and the rest of the cast. Learn some basketball before making comments about how Shaq won all those rings by himself....

Wow! Can't believe the hating going on agaisnt Vanessa. Kobe finally got what he deserved, a big bit out of reality, lol. Hey Kobe! If you cheat on your wife you have to pay the piper. She stayed with you way longer than I would have stayed, but then again she thought you loved her. And, Kobe, when you cheated on her, you also cheated on your kids. The fact that they accumulated wealth was because of Vanessa, if it had been for Kobe it would have gone up his nose and to Ho's. Everybody hating is just money jealous and are venting cause they don't have none. Bunch of tricks :P

Some of you people are just DUMB.... Typical ignorant peons who have no clue as to what is going on with Kobe and Vannessa... Kobe did not protect his assests... that is his own fault... Kobe cheated on his wife and that is his fault.... While Kobe was out playing basketball and traveling Vannessa took care of THEIR kids.. As far as the Mother-n-Law getting a mansion of her own.. now that I don't agree with.

This is got nothing to do with Black or White, its got everything to do with the screwed up system that gives the ex-wife half of everything. Maybe if she knew how to keep him happy he would have not looked away. Ex-wives suck!!!!

first off..wtf does she need with three houses!!!??? living out her means..its ridiculous and selfish of her to even want that. 2nd off...why the hell does her mother get her own house..last time i checked she didn't marry Kobe..Vanessa did. that mother of hers could easily move into the house with Vanessa. no need for her home..if she didn't purchase it herself. third...Vanessa was smart..hoodrat knew what she was doing...PRENUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No winners in divorce...we should pray for everyone involved - especially the children.

Exactly why I'm not married and have no interest in getting married. You get married then 2 years later you get divorced because you don't get along or whatever reason. The ex gets the house, cars, keeps her money and gets half my money. I'm then left with nothing all because a judge thinks she deserves it all. That **** just sounds crazy.

Kobe and all the men in the U.S. are doing the Florida Evans. "Damn, Damn, Daamn". They want equality all right, as long as it benefits them.

Are some of you people complete idiots? The man cheated on her for years and she stood by his side. Kobe is an awesome ballplayer but a crappy husband. How can any of you talk bad about this lady, you need to get a life...I feel she deserves what she gets for the embarrassment that she has been put through...

Total injustice. The laws are ridiculous. He does all the work and she takes 1/2. Yes I know being a mother is work but let's be real there are likely nannies involved so she doesn't do all the work. Unreal.........men get screwed in CA for sure. You're a fool Kobe for not having a pre-nup!
