Kobe and Vanessa Bryant have called off their divorce for now.
At the end of 2011, Vanessa Bryant was seeking a divorce from her NBA star husband, Kobe, but after having to wait out a 6 month waiting period before it could be finalized, she has reportedly called it off for now.
Vanessa had originally cited she was seeking the divorce because she had grown tired of Kobe’s constant infidelity. But now with that 6-month waiting period over this coming weekend, TMZ is reporting they have concrete proof that the couple has reconciled and Vanessa will not sign the papers that would make the divorce final.
“We’ve learned Kobe and Vanessa are trying to work out the issues that caused her to file for divorce back in December. They spend a lot of time together but he has not officially moved back in with her,” TMZ claims.
TMZ went on to proclaim, “Vanessa could end the marriage as early as Monday … but we know she won’t.”
Kobe and Vanessa were married in 2001 after meeting and dating in 1999 when Kobe was 21 and Vanessa was 17. Kobe’s parents did not attend his wedding since they were opposed to him marrying Vanessa. None of any of his teammates, long time agent, or sisters attended the wedding either. The couple has since had two daughters, which has help reconcile the relationship between Kobe and his parents.
