Sportlight today on NBA hot wife Vanessa Bryant. See her biography and photos here.
Vanessa Cornejo Ubrieta Laine was born on May 5, 1982, in Huntington Beach, California. She met Kobe Bryant at a music video where she was a background dancer. Kobe and Vanessa got engaged while Vanessa was still in high school and it’s been reported that her engagement ring was 7 carats and over $100,000. They married on April 18, 2001 when Kobe was 22 and Vanessa was 18. They married without a prenuptial agreement. (Which should work to her advantage since they are rumored to be getting a divorce).
Kobe and Vanessa have two daughters – Natalia Diamante was born January 19, 2003 and Gianna Maria-Onore was born May 1, 2006.
In 2003, Kobe was charged with the rape of a 19-year-old hotel worker in Eagle, Colorado. Vanessa stood by her man during the whole ordeal, though the Los Angeles Lakers star claimed that he did not rape the 19-year-old and that it was consensual. The charges against Kobe were eventually dropped and as a way to apologize for the whole ordeal, he bought Vanessa a $4 million dollar 8 carat purple diamond ring. She’s got some major bling, doesn’t she?
