Kobe Bryant, Wife Vanessa Bryant to Divorce; NBA Star's Cheating to Blame

by at . Comments

Vanessa Bryant, the wife of NBA star Kobe Bryant, filed for divorce Friday afternoon, citing "irreconcilable differences." They were married 10 and a half years.

Sources say that Vanessa decided to end the marriage because she thinks the Los Angeles Lakers guard has been unfaithful ... and not for the first time.

As one source close to Vanessa put it, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough."

"This one is the straw that broke the camel's back."

Vanessa Bryant famously stuck by Kobe after he was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado woman in 2003 (he was acquitted of all charges).

Apparently the cheating didn't end there, though, and while Kobe "desperately" wants to win her back and will do "whatever it takes" ... good luck.

Vanessa is asking for joint custody of their two daughters, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5, but is asking that the basketball superstar get visitation rights

There is no prenup, so 29-year-old Vanessa is entitled to half the empire built over the last decade by NBA MVP and five-time champion Kobe, 33.

She's also requesting spousal support, which Kobe will pay. The Bryants released a joint statement saying they have "resolved all issues" privately.

No word on whether Kobe plans on changing his uniform number yet again or if Vanessa plans on joining the new season of VH1's Basketball Wives.

SIDE NOTE: That $4 million ring Kobe gave Vanessa after the 2003 scandal - later referred to as "the Kobe special" by Tiger Woods - all hers. Gift, babe.

I don't believe in divorce, but if he is not going to stop, then she has no choice. I am quite sure over the years she has made him aware of how she felt about him cheating, he should of stopped. He knew they had no prenup and if she left she was going to take half and I'm quite sure she has threatened to leave before over the cheating.

Well in my opinion.... this is not all on Kobe. But hear me out for a second... isn't it kind of funny how when kobe got charged with rape she didn't care after he bought her that ring? Maybe he was thinking that he could keep buying her things and she wouldn't care... and as for you people that say Vanessa is faithful, your stupid! What female do you know that wouldn't cheat even after she found out her husband cheats on her? My point exactly! And that just proves she is a gold digger! I mean she waited until he was at the top of his game to divorce him! So to me they should get equal blame!

All I have to say is all these men who "cheat" and have daughters don't think about the implications of their action on their daughters. They say "what goes around, comes around". And there's a west indian saying "what don't fall on head, will fall on sholders". So when his daughters grow up and men cheat on them. That's when he'll get the implications of his actions. Cause it's not gonna hurt him in the long run it will hurt his daughters and that's sad. Cheating goes deeper than just what's on the surface. Your actions don't jsut affect you Koby....get a brain and learn how to be a real man. Not for you but for your daughters. So they don't end up with a cheater like you.

You guys are crazy! Blaming Vanessa, when Kobe is the one cheating? Talking of these 10 years of marriage, of course, she thought of the family, children, wanted to make it work. My husband cheated on me too, 8 years ago and I gave him a chance. Last year I found out he's still in that relationship, but we have 2 small daughters and they love their father. I'm not happy, but I'm thinking of the girls, when they'll grow a little, we should see. I'm 34 now, not 26, matured, so is Vanessa. Why are you all getting hard on her? Is it only because her husband is a celeb? And she's very pretty and Kobe went after her a lot, he wanted her badly and married her instead of his family will and there was no prenup to show her how much he loved her. It's very sad all that love is not there anymore, really, he's the one loosing
