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.

Who cares? He should be in prison for what he did and she's obviously a gold-digger.

So she'll stay with him as long as she gets way more money if things don't work out down the road. So she's essentially a high paid hooker. Good call Kobe.

This marriage could not have been easy for Vanessa, put yourself in her position. How many times must she have asked herself, what really happened in the hotel room in Colorado? am I married to a rapist? At the very least she knows her husband had unprotected anal sex with a total stanger who he had just met. This would cause serious trust issues for Vanessa, it cannot be easy for her to be married to a man like that. But Vanessa also comes off as a very greedy woman, who has never held a job but wants and wants. They kind of deserve eachother

Strange the $3.2 Million house sale for a PROFIT is in 2013 with return to Very High tax rates. Well deserved.

I've said it before--I have more respect for street hookers than this POS!!!
At least they are honest about who they are.
Vanessa's just passing the gold-digging lessons down to her daughters, like her mom taught her.
And Kobe can steal cheat his azz off.
They are grosse and TOTES deserve each other!!!!
