Kobe Bryant's Wife

Kobe Bryant is NOT getting divorced.

TMZ broke the story ... Vanessa -- through her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser -- filed to end her marriage in December, 2011.  Several months later ... Kobe -- in an attempt to win her back -- deeded over his interest in their 3 Newport Beach mansions. 

Since she filed, Vanessa and Kobe were on-again, off-again like high school students.

But in the last month ... they got very tight.  A turning point seemed to be the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert at Madison Square Garden in NYC, when the two left arm-in-arm.  They spent New Year's Eve together, were spotted at lunch and have pretty much been inseparable.

There have been reports that Kobe is getting back with Vanessa because it's cheaper to keep her ... but that's just not true.  Fact is ... we've checked property records and Vanessa still owns 2 of the Newport Beach mansions -- she just sold the third for $3.2 mil.  We don't know for sure, but it seems like Kobe may have signed a post-nup, giving Vanessa more financial leverage in the relationship.

So now, Kobe, Vanessa and the 2 kids are one big happy family again.  Congrats.

I don't think she will ever leave him even if he cheats again. He's the only she's know. She has basically spent all her adulthood and over half of her life with him. Women in this situation never leave. It's not the money, but the sense of security especially with two (or three) kids. No matter how much money she has, she will be too scared to be alone and getting into the dating pool.

She's such an evil little witch. Remember when she was sued by her maid? The claim was that Vanessa yelled at, criticized, and humiliated her maid in front of Kobe and the children, and was so incredibly abusive because the maid washed one of Vanessa's blouses, that should have been dry cleaned. Then Vanessa asked the maid to reach into a bag filled with dog feces, to retrieve a price tag belonging to the blouse. Vanessa should thank her lucky stars that she met Kobe, or she could be on the receiving end of such treatment.

Let's face it. Vanessa doesn't have any real talent or skills--all she knows how to do is be Mrs. Kobe Bryant! It doesn't matter how much or how many times Kobe cheats she will NEVER leave. She just wanted to scare him. This will wear off after a while and the cycle in their marriage will start all over again. She's too insecure to ever divorce him. Wait until Kobe retires and has to be around her all day. I hear she's really nasty. This marriage will end just like Michael Jordan who also was a cheater and tried a couple of times to save his marriage.
