Vanessa Bryant

Shops for NY Apartment

Bye, Bye, L.A.?

Vanessa Bryant and her kids were in New York City over the weekend, looking for a big ol' apartment ... TMZ has learned.

Real estate sources tell us ... Vanessa won't say if she's packing up and moving from California -- but she definitely wants to buy a place in NYC.

It's not exactly a sign that she's reconciling with Kobe Bryant, even though the two were kissing after the Lakers game on Valentine's Day.

Vanessa now owns 3 estates in Newport Beach, after Kobe transferred title to her as part of their divorce -- which has not yet become final.  And, as we first reported, Vanessa will score a total of $75 mil in the settlement.

As for whether Vanessa would move away from California ... we're told she thinks Lakers fans and Lakers wives don't like her -- at least that's the way she perceives it.

No doubt ... if Vanessa did move, it would royally screw Kobe up.  He still loves her, wants her back, and doesn't want his kids to live across the country.

Our real estate sources say Vanessa made it clear -- Kobe knows she's shopping in the Big Apple.

I'm sad to see that Vanessa's daughter took after her and she too has that hideous protruding overbite. The other little girl looks like a werewolf. Some people should not mate....at all.

Nothin' but a gold digger! I would never have been with the man in the first place. C'mon, he's an NBA player. They ALL cheat. He's stupid to have given her a $4 mil ring the last time. He's not worth near as much as Tiger, but I'm sure she'll be living in luxury for a long time without having to work.

These dumb guys marry these women who only want their money so they get what they deserve, same with all athletes, get real guys, if you are butt ugly and you get a hot girl they just want your money, no way they love the "real you" they love that lifestyle don't be an idiot. If they marry you and don't want all that fancy ****....then they really do love you.

Would your mostly middle-class white reporting guys Stop with the "he still loves her...". Clearly the fool has no idea love is action. Respectable, protective, action. If you must skewer it, report,"Kobe claims he still loves her" as real women aren't falling for really thoughtless, in every sense of the word, reporting.

Thanks.

Hopefully she will just keep stringing him along rather than go back with him, he deserves it.

I am confused, Sunday you said they were getting back together, Monday she is in New York looking for a place to live? Your sources are wrong?

If Kobe wants her back, then why does he act in public like he doesn't?
