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.

What did she ever do, other than being married to Kobe, to deserve anywhere near what the money she is getting?


Our divorce laws are a joke.

Wait wait wait. Kobe cheats on his gorgeous wife with some skank in Colorado and we're supposed to feel bad for him (or annoyed with her) when she divorces his cheating arse and gets half his stuff? Yeah right.


And Tiger Woods? Dude married a friggin super model - who is a TWIN by the way - and cheats on her? This is like the Paris Hilton of stupidity here. Even if Kobe's and Tiger's wives weren't gorgeous, they'd STILL deserve to get their stuff taken in a divorce. 

Why are we crying over this cheating superstars?

Kobe loses $75M. So what? That's pocket-change to him. He'll end up making that back in maybe two year's worth of basketball paychecks and endorsements. Poor guy...he's going to be out on the street begging for food now.

I would not suggest anyone get married this day and time regardless of being rich or poor. Even though I've been married for 30yrs, I told my wife I would have never married if it were not for her, I would have divorced myself 29yrs and 11months ago if I was her. She have treated like a King while dealing with my BS. But even at that the court system has been created to help women even though there are a bunch of Dumb guys out there as well. Being a Star Athelete and Young/Rich, I would just have Fun and be Single.

Something wrong with misspelling genius? I'm just saying. So obviously you are not a genius either?

It's pretty simple. if your wealthy don't get married, and if you do, have an iron-clad pre-nup. Otherwise you only have yourself to blame.

What a gold-digger, she played her cards perfectly. Did anyone on this earth think Kobe wasn't a cheater? Of course she knew all along, she just strung him along guilting him into rings, an estate for her mother, and now two more mansions. She sucked him dry for hundreds of millions just because Kobe was a big enough dumbass to marry her.

Couldnt agree more, marriage is bs. The main problem with this country is the lawyers though.

So true. They own 3 houses and he can't keep one??!! He made the money to pay for all three, but he shouldn't keep any of them? Doesn’t he need a place to live too? No successful man should ever consider getting married with how biased divorces have become.
