Kobe and Vanessa Bryant

DIVORCE OFF ...

For Now

0611_vanessa_kobe_bryant_article
Vanessa Bryant will NOT sign documents to make her divorce final ... at least for now ... because TMZ has learned, she and Kobe are working on a full reconciliation.

We've learned Kobe and Vanessa are trying to work out the issues that caused her to file for divorce back in December. They spend a lot of time together but he has not officially moved back in with her. 

Under California law, Vanessa has to wait 6 months before she can file final docs making the divorce official. The 6-month mark hits this weekend, so Vanessa could end the marriage as early as Monday ... but we know she won't.

Now here's the deal. We're told Kobe and Vanessa have had their ups and downs since she filed for divorce ... and there's nothing stopping her from filing final divorce papers at some point in the future if things don't work out.

One more thing. If Kobe and Vanessa end up living together ... it will be in one of her 3 mansions, because he signed over all the deeds to her while they were working out divorce details.

Advantage Vanessa.

Cheaper to keep her. Who gets married without a prenup in this day and age? Tiger gave a $100 mil with a prenup,crazy.. I wish them well, because marriage is a wonderful thing when done properly...

This is calculated on both of their parts. She wants more cash, he doesn't want to lose all his cash. It's brilliant. But for her, she's already gotten a lot of cash so isn't it enough? He has humiliated her on a nationwide level.

For Kobe: It's cheaper to keep her.
For Vanessa: No perks in L.A./Staples Center being the EX-Wife of Kobe Bryant "Win-Win"

I think she should drop him like a hot rock. Once the trust is gone, you're done. No amount of money makes up for the horrible emotional pain when your spouse cheats, and the constant suspicion it's going to happen again. They have loved each , other since high school, so even if she is paid a huge amount, I am sure it still really hurts.

Yeah Kobe's been going up and down on women since the beginning. Guess he'll BUY her off with another house or huge gemstone. What does that make her?

Alimony is only half the time of the marriage. You gave her the houses... now get the f..k out Kobe. Don't even pack... RUN !

This is what I see in this relationship:

Vanessa diabolically smart and just want to go after his money plus his property and live a lavish lifestyle. She is afraid to drop down towards the middle class after so many years and be like the rest of us.

Kobe is really blind and just wanted to stay with her because of her beauty. Maybe this is the only latina he'll ever get probably. He's such a loser realizing not having a prenup, she takes half of his stuff and still wanted go get back with her. Also he cheats and that should mean he's already tired of commitment .

I'll conclude that this so called relationship still has some essence form their high school days and what I mean is that they're actually not grown at all. Relationships from high school is not meant to last a long time. They should just move on already and take their separate ways. Having married at a young age is really bad, I think Kobe was 23 and Vanessa was 19 at the time when they got married so that should speak for itself from all this disaster.

Vanessa, you did the right thing, what God has put together let no man a sunnder, work things out with him, teach your children that you can have disaggrements and still move on. may God bless you and your family in what ever the decission may be.
