Kobe Bryant and Vanessa

Reconciling ...

With Their Mouths

2/15/2012 5:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant and Vanessa shared a kiss in the tunnel on the way into the locker room.Another come-from-behind victory for Kobe Bryant ... sucking face with the woman who has now taken all of his homes, Vanessa Bryant ... and now TMZ can confirm the two are working on a reconciliation.

Vanessa showed up for the Lakers Valentine's Day victory over the Atlanta Hawks. The two shared a kiss in the tunnel on the way into the locker room.

TMZ broke the story ... Vanessa filed for divorce in December, and they have already sealed the property settlement deal in which Vanessa got all 3 Newport Beach estates.

But sources told us at the time Vanessa filed ... don't be surprised if she goes back to Bryant.

And, although Kobe and Vanessa have submitted all the necessary docs to divorce, it doesn't become final until mid-June, so there's plenty of time to withdraw the papers.

FYI -- we're told Kobe and Vanessa are NOT living with each other ... yet.

well I see the kobe haters are out. Kobe I'm happy for u. If she makes u happy go for it...and get that money back. All these haters wanna bring up Colorado, which was bull because he didn't rape her...no need to cause he's kobe bryant. She even took a settlement so what does that say. Kobe and Vanessa ignore the haters and do what makes u happy.

Anybody else thinking that they are just looking for a tv show like the Kraptashians?...like he doesn't have enough money already....and since TMZ is all of a sudden writing about them....they are probably being repped by Momager Kraptashian......GROSS!

Kobe is the dumbest MF on the planet for getting back with this golddigger! Reminds me of that song..."The Whole Towns Laughing At Me!"

Body language: when someone kisses a person with their eyes open, it means they don't trust the person they are kissing. But I would've guessed that even without this picture.

Wow, I was actually starting to have some respect for her. She is an enabler. Since there are really never any consequences for Kobe he will continue his behavior once their relationship is secure again. I hope she has accepted she will always have to share him.

Don't cave Vanessa. You finally stood up for yourself only to back down. If you keep him you deserve what you get.

I think Kobe had proved that he can do whatever he wants without his woman.at leats 40pts each match! They are married for 10 yrs, the splitting wont be easy , seems being a truly love...

Well, what can I say really? She's been with him since she was in highschool. I think it's more than just money to her, she true loves him. I was super shocked when she filed for divorce but right now, I'm glad that they can work it out. However, I do not condone his cheating whatsoever!! If you're unhappy then why stay? I guess she's so head over heels for him, her love is totally blind.
