Kobe Bryant’s Wife Files for Divorce

I am not a big basketball fan and while I understand the basic premise of getting the ball through the hoop, I can be cartoonishly girly when it comes to what happens when someone fouls or when people cheer for seemingly no reason.  "What happened?  Wait, is that good or bad?” But you don’t need a deep knowledge of the game to know the gossip, especially when it comes to Kobe Bryant’s past problems with mistresses.  His wife has filed for divorce because it could be a habit he can’t kick.

Vanessa Bryant famously stood by her man in 2003 after he was accused of sexual assault, holding fast to the statement that he was guilty of adultery but nothing criminal.  But it seems things got too much for Vanessa and she has filed for divorce.  Eight-carat, $4 million purple diamond rings can’t always buy forgiveness.

The couple has no pre-nup, which means she could be looking at a major payout. According to hoopsworld.com, Bryant will make more than $25 million this season, almost $28 million next season and more than $30 million in 2013-14. 

While papers cite irreconcilable differences, rumors of cheating are already starting to swirl.  Things could get messy fast.
