Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa split – the Mrs files for divorce in Orange County California citing "irreconcilable differences"

Well, this divorce has been a long time in the making. We have done a couple of posts on the subject and every now and then we get a surge of traffic for them via Bing. Interestingly, now that papers have actually been filed, we got no surge in traffic. People haven’t yet woken up to the news.
The tone of this divorce, unlike the timing, seems great. The fact that Mrs Bryant cited irreconcilable differences is a good sign that she doesn’t plan on having a blow out divorce. Plus, she has indicated that their two daughters Natalia and Giana will have the privilege of mommy and daddy as the Bryants¬†will share “joint custody” per a report in the Los Angeles Times. That’s very grown up and healthy and good. Why she had to file right before Christmas, though, is anyone’s guess. It must have been pretty awful that she couldn’t even wait till after Christmas, especially when there are such young children, 8 and 5 respectively, involved.
This was a ten year marriage — making it long term by Hollywood standards and I’ve heard rumors that there was no prenup. They were both very young when they tied the knot and were probably idealistic and so IN LOVVVVVVVVVVVVE.¬† So the thought of a prenup must have been crass and ugly and just vile. And they didn’t execute one, according to some sources. But I don’t know if that is true. Still, she will make out like a bandit. I remember when Kobe was charged with sexual assault a few years back and she stood by him and I am sure a lot changed at that time, he must have really set up his affairs in such a way to show his gratitude to her. And that means more money, more baubles, more minks, more everything in her name. So she will make out like a bandit with this one. And look at her. Look at them both. They will rebound before you know it and remarry in under five years, I bet and continue to spread those genes around. Look at them! Look at those kids! Gorgeous!
