Kobe Bryant & Vanessa

HOT LUNCH DATE

EXCLUSIVE

Another positive sign for Kobe Bryant's marriage -- the NBA star took his estranged wife Vanessa out on a romantic lunch date today ... and they totally SPLIT A SANDWICH & SOUP COMBO MEAL!!!

The two rolled in to the PDM Bakery and Cafe in Newport Beach, CA this afternoon looking and acting very coupley -- despite the fact their divorce is still pending.

Sources tell us ... Kobe and Vanessa split the Tuscan chicken sandwich (served hot) and tortilla soup combo meal -- and washed it down with a pair of iced teas.

We're told the Bryants hung out at the restaurant for about an hour ... and couldn't have been nicer.

Vanessa filed for divorce back in December ... but it seems like they're all but reconciled these days. Not only did Vanessa support Kobe in London during the Olympics, she also attended the Lakers pre-season game last night.

To everyone who is saying her raped a girl and paid her off, if she got paid after sleeping with him she is a wh0re... If she wanted him convicted she should have kept it in court even if he would not be convicted it would have been proof she was telling the truth because she turned down the money... Now its just one skank vs another.

KOBE is a good man. He's a black man, however, and the emotions run deep. The sex is beyond his control; therefore, it may appear that he fools around; he cannot help that.

VANESSA loves Kobe. She'd be a fool to let him go. So he has a flaw, but that doesn't mean she should divorce him. She will never be happy without him. He's a sweet man and I know the vitamin D is good.
