It's pretty much accepted as fact that Kobe Bryant cheated on wife Vanessa on more than one occasion and that his infidelity led to her divorce filing last Friday.
What's unclear is who the other woman was - but Jessica Burciaga says it's not her.
Rumors pegged Playboy Playmate and Miss February 2009 Jessica as the alleged mistress that was in the middle of it all, but she says it's simply not the case.
Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce after an affair she heard about through the NBA wife rumor mill, believing that to be the last straw. It wasn't with Jessica, though.
A spokesperson for both Kobe and Vanessa says the rumors are false and the initial blog, MediaTakeOut (dot) com, even acknowledges as much now. Shocker.
A second source also told E! News that, "Kobe and Jessica have never met."
Well, that's interesting. Not that we're surprised. If you follow the sexy Playmate on Twitter - and you should! - you'd know something were amiss ...
"The 1st media website that released this false story now takes it down, but thanks a lot now it's all over every other blog," she tweeted yesterday.
"It feels good when a non reliable, crappy media website retracts their story and takes my pics down and gets its right days later. Great."
There you have it people. Lesson learned.
