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.

I think Kobe should hvae gone to college and taken a basic business contracts class. He might have considered a prenup. I think this chick was nothing but a small city hood rat before landing kobe.

There are some that are magically in the know. Most posters know that Kobe’s wife is a genuine gold digger. That is why she married Kobe so she could marry him stay with him for a certain period of time, have a couple of kids and then, when that exact time is up, it becomes time for a divorce and settlement time.

I guess most on this board would think that all women are whores and only want cash for sex.  Well you had better look at your wife/and or girlfriend, because on a smaller scale she might be doing the same to you.

When you bring flowers for staying out all night with the boys, is that sorta like your version of the 4 million dollar ring?

I don’t think Kobe’s wife was or is a gold digger. I think like most women in this world she had enough of rumors and perhaps proof that Kobe was actually having sex with other women and was fed up with it.

California is a community property state, where anything accumulated during the marriage is considered marital access, would be equally divided, even if one had income.
 
If you were to divorce you wife in California, she would be getting half of what you have earned and the houses and cars you have accumulated over the time you were married, except the money would not be as high, just thousands as oppose to millions and your divorce would not be public knowledge.
