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 really wish someone would put a stop this. This woman deserves nowhere near 75 million dollars...she hasnt earned a penny of it. I mean seriously...WTF!!! Have a little class and dignity like Russell Brand. give 20 millions tops and kick her ass to the curb. These numbers are ****ing ridiculous...

She is only proving the exact reason WHY people that know her DO NOT like her. She acts so selfish like a child and this is a perfect example of her showing that she continues to put herself before her children. Oh CRY ME RIVER, nobody likes her in LA so she's going to MOVE her children across the country and separate them from their father for NO GOOD REASON!!! On top of the fact that it's his money that's paying for her to break up their family. SHAMEFUL!!

Smh     

These girls are ugly. When black and latino mix the children are generally ugly. The children often look too black.

Most kids go through that "awkward ugly phase"...when they start losing teeth, growing, etc.....people just don't usually bring it to the parents or kids attention! The one girl looks like she is just about ready for braces...so hopefully her parents will get on that.

Those kids are going to be gorgeous when they grow up. Cute kid features generally don't look good on adult faces.

If Kobe was smart he would have told her to take the houses and he would keep the kids! It's too bad the kids have to suffer in a situation like this where it could obviously be avoided if some people just acted like mature adults.

she created her own issues with the laker wives/girlfriends...
laker fan will never buy it but its true, the sooner the bryants are out of LA the better...
And the lakers will regain that " i wanna play for the lakers" rep back in the league...not many players at this point in time are willing to deal with the soap opera that is the bryants/ play for the lakers

Wow I don't know how some of you sleep at night. Posting negatively about these innocent, adorable, cute kids is disgusting!!

I think the girls are adorable and very cute especially the older one. I saw a recent picture of her online and she's got beautiful model looks.

Vanessa, I hope you don't leave LA because of these wives who are just jealous of you. You are strong girl and don't let them push you away. I am a Laker fan and I think you are good for LA and the Lakers so I hope you stay and we get to see more of you.
