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 you aholes called this woman names are nothing but jealous immature creeps. He should of gotten a prenup if he was going around raping women and sleeping around.

You hood rats are just jealous that she is not anywhere near where you can touch her as if you could even if she was.

Because that's what life is all about, amassing as many multi-million dollar houses as you can.

I need help. How does she get half and they signed a prenup. This system we have needs to be revamped. I don't object to an ex spouse recieving some alimony. But it doesn't make any sense to me for a rich person to have to give up so much of what they've earned. Why is the mother-in-law living in a mansion? Was kobe played the fool?

Good for her! He is the one who couldn't keep it in his pants! It was his cheating that ended their marraige, and his stupidity with not having a pre-nup that made this all happen! Hopefully next time he'll be smarter :-)

Why all the anger at the mother of his kids after SHE stood by him through the rape charges. HE exposed her to possible HIV and other diseases. Marriage is a LEGAL partnership. Everyone knows. Whopping and JLo had to pay thei ex- husbands but no one is upset about their settlements.
Kobe has more than enough cash to lead a good life. SHE helped him earn those endorsements when she stood by him during the rape accusations. With all the affairs she had enough and he knows it. He is probably fine with the settlement and wants his kids well taken care of.
I hope she can go on and find a better partner.
I wonder if she wer white would there be this much anger.

Isn't there a stipulation to this Ca law, requiring the marriage lasting for 10 yrs for the spouse to receive half of earnings? Hmm....
He's been cheating ALL THESE YRS, and yet she didn't leave!?
Didn't they pass their 10 year anniversary in 2011??$$$? =p

Why is everyone pissed, even if Kobe would have gotten a pre-nup, she still would have gotten half of everything he earned in the last 10 years. You morons need to read a book every once in a while.

She didn't score nearly as big as the former Mrs. Tiger Woods, and she had just as many children and far more years of sorry nonsense to endure. I am tired of hearing that she is a gold digger. If Elin Nordegren (who was nothing more than a half-dressed party girl when she took up with Tiger) can get a pass on gold-digging, so should this young woman.
