It's a good thing this guy practically lives in the gym.

We noted earlier this week that Los Angeles Lakers All-Star guard Kobe Bryant was set to lose a reported $75 million in a divorce settlement with wife Vanessa. TMZ.com reports Friday that the settlement will give Vanessa all three of the Bryants' homes.
Vanessa scored a clean sweep, snagging all three of the former couple's mansions in the Newport Beach area. Vanessa gets the estate the couple was living in, the estate her mom is living in, and she gets the new estate that had been under construction for 2 years and was just completed.
The Bryants, who have two young daughters, announced that they were filing for divorce in December and they did not have a prenuptial agreement in place.  

In a prepared statement issued to the media in December, a representative of the Bryant said: "The Bryants have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a Judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012." 

According to Basketball-Reference.com, Bryant has earned more than $196 million in salary during his NBA career. Bryant is on the books for $25 million for the 2011-2012 season, tops in the NBA according to Forbes.com, and has an additional $57 million owed to him in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 combined. SI.com reports that Bryant makes at least $10 million per year in off-court endorsements.

Report: Kobe Bryant loses 3 houses in divorce

It's funny how the Kobe apologists are so quick to label her a gold digger.  If he hadn't cheated, like a lowlife, she probably wouldn't want a divorce.  It's his fault, and he deserves whatever is coming to him.

If Kobe ever does get married again, I strongly suspect he'll have a prenup as thick as a New York City phone book in place before tying the knot.

LOL. You mean his new wife will have an airtight prenup as he doesnt have a pot to pi$$ in.....

The moral of this story is: If you're rich & planning on getting married, you should hire a world class attorney & have an airtight prenup signed before saying "I do".This is particularly good advice if, like Kobe, you're a player & plan to continue having sex with lots of different women.If Kobe ever does get married again, I strongly suspect he'll have a prenup as thick as a New York City phone book in place before tying the knot.

I have two thoughts on this:

1) the fact that he owned three houses worth this much forces me to have no sympathy for him
2) sometimes gold diggers do indeed strike it rich
