Kobe Bryant's Wife

Sells Mansion for $3.2 Mil

EXCLUSIVE

Kobe Bryant's wife just lost one-third of her real estate portfolio ... unloading one of the three Newport Beach mansions Kobe gave her right after they split back in 2011 ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Vanessa Bryant listed the 6,000 sq. ft. Newport Beach property back in September for $3.75 million -- and she finally closed the deal this month for $3.22 million.

Kobe and Vanessa purchased the place back in 2003 for $2.65 million. Vanessa's mother Sofia was living in the home prior to the sale.

The house is one of three massive Newport Beach mansions Kobe gave Vanessa last year ... one month after she filed for divorce.

As for the status of Kobe and Vanessa's divorce -- the papers have not been withdrawn ... and one source tells us they're on and off so much it's hard to get a read.

Still, the two were acting pretty coupley in public as recently as New Year's -- maybe 2013 is the year of the comeback.

I don't know what goes on in the privacy of their home, so I'm not going to judge. At least they have tried to make their marriage work instead of bailing after 72 days like KK did. Yes, I am judging KK.

Maybe they had to do a lot of repairs and upgrades to the place before the sold it. Just because someone sells it for more than they bought does not mean they came away with a high profit. Also, were they living in it full time? Makes a difference on the taxes. TMZ never gives enough info or both sides of the story.

You have got to give these two Mexican Senoras credit where credit is due . They both rode out of Garbage Gulch Garden Grove in a Benz and all on Kobe's dime. Without him, these two would both be flinging frejoles in some Santa Ana bean hut. Wh0ring out her teen daughter to Kobe really paid off for Sophia, plus she laughs all the way to the bank when she cashes that poor slob Steve's $1800 check every month. Yippe...money for nothing! Sophia taught her daughter everything she knows about how to fleece some guy.

Why is the mother in law living in Newport Coast? SHE'S not the one who had to have sex with a rapist. People can biatch about Vanessa but hey... she had to have sex with a rapist..pretty gross if you ask me. No amount of money or crap from Gucci would make that worth it plus Kobe is a lying cheater. I would never believe one word out of his mouth.

Bet she got rid of it after realizing this past year that its a BeeAtch to maintain. Of course she's not going to divorce him. She gets a big allowance every month and she still gets to nag him and try to make him win her back, and not get the top grade Hollywood A** he'd pull without her tagging along. She's a semi stalker

Have you seen this Vanessa's Instagram account? It boggles the mind. This woman lives on another planet. She posts a picture of eight or nine pairs of $1,000 shoes and biatches that none of them go with the dress she wants to wear. She brags about being an "honor student" in (and get this) the EIGHTH GRADE!!! Did this ninny even graduate high school? For an "honor student" she does not even know the difference between "your" and "you're". This shiat-for-brains also has the ballz to claim that if she had not married Kobe she would have become a "prosecuting attorney". LOL'z to the moon and back on that one! I guess she wants to work in the D.A.'s office and put all those SOB rapists in jail, right Nessa?

Ick...I feel like I need a shower whenever see anything about either one of these two pukes on the internet or on TV. They are both POS who deserve each other. This Vanessa appears to be delusional and at the very least she has NPD. Kobe is an all around pricck who eff's and rapes anything that can't run away from him fast enough.

Please, please, please sign those divorce papers so we never have to hear from this chola chica ever again. Oh...and she posts pictures of the food she makes on Instagram and it's straight up TJ Mex food. Kobe got himself a real TJ hoodrat! You go Kobe...hooo-hooo. No wonder his parents hates her guts.
