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

I also have to wonder why she waited so long to file,after he corned holed the hotel woman and got caught he handed over a big rock worth about75 K or perhaps more, that must have satisfied his wife for a little while. Do you think he got caught again, my guess is yes thus the divorce. I think the man always gets the short end of the stick in a divorce but you would think his lawyer should have told him after being caught the first time.
Big Sausage the reason Vanessa probably waited so long was because she needed airtight proof that Kobe Bryant was cheating on her. Here is a link to an article detailing Kobe's affairs (plural) and some of the findings of the private investigator she hired: . The private investigator that she hired gave her that airtight proof of his repeated cheating and so now he is going to get what she is entitled to under the law in the state of California.
Just like Alex Rodriguez, Tiki Barber, or Tiger Woods just to name a few I applaud these women for saying enough is enough and getting everything that they are entitled to under the law.
First and foremost these jerks are going around and laying down with all sorts of women so who knows what kind of sexually transmitted diseases they are bringing back to their wives. Despite what you may think of these women they are mothers and it would be horrible for a child to lose a mother to a deadly disease because daddy was spreading the love around.
Secondly how much crap must these wives be taking from not just the media but so-called friends because their husbands are unable to honor their marriage vows.
Finally how much crap will those children take as they get older because their father was unfaithful and the divorce played out in public and can be researched on the internet.
Money can not cure the pain and anguish that Kobe's family is and will be feeling, however hitting him where it hurts (the wallet) will give him a sense of just how much he hurt his family by his selfish actions.
