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.

"Vanessa not only had to put up with this jerks womanizing..." - I don't know much about her, but from your post she sounds like a complete idiot.

Vanessa not only had to put up with this jerks womanizing but also had to deal with Kobe's RACIST father. She stood by him all through the rape allegations, knowing full well that he was probably guilty. She knew he was constantly cheating on her.  I am very glad that this aragonant ass is finally getting a bit of comupance.

Kobe deserves what he got, probably more....Vanessa had to put up with his womanizing until it was just too much.  And the kids should definitely be taken care of...they are really the victims of Kobe's actions.

ROFL, great basketball player, really stupid person.  No prenup?  Well I guess he can afford the 75 million, but just goes to show how ridiculous our legal sytem is when the chick gets 75 million.  For what exactly?  I sincerely doubt she contributed 75 million worth of anything to the marriage, his basketball skills or any of his endorsement deals.  Good call giving her the houses, they are probably worth more on the books than if they tried to sell them.  Bryant needs to start a marriage consulting agency for ahtletes.  How to have affairs 101, Getting a prenup 202, Balancing basketball, bimbos and a family..advanced class 303.

She wasnt a celebrity hanger!! see you people write all these comments and yet have no idea what your talking about!! They were together long before he became a star. Learn a little something before you post about things you have no idea about and read in a news paper article!! As a father of two I would be more then glad to give my wife half as i should so that my kids are always taken care of. Sorry bud but playing a sport doesnt make you a harder worker then taking care of 2 kids while your no where to be found for 8 months a year!!

Sounds like you had more of an agenday against California politics than a commentary on Bryant.  He happens to be a minority by the way, any comment on why he is "relegated" to a second class citizen?
