I was so busy sending free back rub coupons to Emma Stone on Valentine’s Day that I forgot all about Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa, being caught on camera as they shared this smooch at a Los Angeles Lakers game.
That got everyone wondering, “Holy crap, is she going to forgive him for allegedly cheating on her with Playboy model Jessica Burciaga?” And apparently the answer is: “Hahahahaha, hell no.” According to the Los Angeles Times, the kiss didn’t mean much, because the divorce is still moving along and Vanessa is still set to receive a little compensation for her 10-year marriage:
– An estate in the Resort at Pelican Hill that was recently under construction. Property records peg its worth at $11.2 million. Bryant’s agent, Rob Pelinka, was the listed owner until he signed transfer papers Dec. 15.
– A home worth $2.9 million owned jointly by the couple since 2003. Vanessa Bryant signed documents to transfer it into her name Dec. 14.
– A home valued at $4.7 million that was transferred to Vanessa on Dec. 30 from the Kobe Bryant trust.
Between the mansions and the money, Vanessa is expected to net about $75 million from this divorce. Poor Kobe. Only $75 million left to buy a new house and find love somewhere else. Let’s all hope he can get through this. Stay strong, Mamba.
