Vanessa Bryant

Shops for NY Apartment

Bye, Bye, L.A.?

2/20/2012 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

The mean comments about the kids are so uncalled for. These kids will have a hard enough time in life because of their idiot parents and the stupid way they both conduct their lives. Both of these girls will soon be of an age where they will discover the truth about their rapist father and their foul mouthed, POS mother.

Why did TMZ print the kids picture anyway? What do the kids have to do with Kobe's moron ex-wife buying a NYC apartment?

So because she thinks Lakers fans and wives don't like her, she's going to take the man's kids away from him?

Question (?) For TMZ Attorneys:


? Can V go through with the divorce, keep everything, then would they have to start all-over-again with a NEW pre-nup?


SHOULD they get back together with the divorce settlement REMAINING in place?


Does Kobe really want her BACK that bad?


Or IYLO (In Your Legal Opinion) does he want to get the
75 million/property back?


-How complicated IS this, cuz to the lay person this seems awfully complicated?


If you know or if you'd profer a legal opinion ... Is Kobester asking her to rip up the divorce agreement?


-cuz I would.


If I got stuck with a 75 million dollar payment -


Do I want to go around AGAIN -


And for ANOTHER 75 million?


Oh, and just for the hell of it.


Are the KNICKS interested in Kobe and is something going on behind the scenes that would BRING him there?

@ TMZ Legal Staff p.s.

Arguably-Interesting What-If Thought:


What If:


(re: Vanessa's alleged comments that the Laker wives don't like her)


What-if this is based on ...


Vanessa "outing" them for spying/reporting on Kobe?


What-if no none of the other WIVES ever TOLD Vanessa - that Kobe was cheating on her?


What-if Vanessa made the entire thing up.


Based on her own imagination/speculation.


THEN engineered an entire confession/divorce settlement OUT of Kobe -


Based on a complete lie.


What-if the Lakers' wives KNOW none-of-them said/did this, and that Vanessa's F.O.S?


Would make for a compelling movie - and I'd certainly be the one to WRITE it.


Wonder-if Vanessa'd take A LIE DETECTOR TEST about her own allegations regarding Laker wives/Kobe's cheating.


If this entire thing was CONCOCTED by Vanessa, then we have a pretty smart (and rich) cookie in the house.


And God knows she has a lot of time to THINK.

She has that exact same soul-less greed look in her eyes that the Kardashians and Hiltons have.

I am beginning to think her father was right about her

I don't think no black man should get married... there's just to big of a void to fill. It's virtually impossible for any one woman to help him to fill that void. Therefore, it would behoove the black man to not get married, but stay single and free enough to find himself. It could take a lifetime, but it's worth it. Otherwise, with the laws the way they are in America, women will always have and take the advantage. Especially when it is a rich black man. Even if he is poor, she will have and take the advantage.

STAY SINGLE.
