Did these two have a change of heart? Last night Vanessa Bryant was in the stands to watch her soon to be ex-husband Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Atlanta Hawks, 86-78. They were seen lip locked as Kobe headed back to the Laker locker room following their win. So are these two reconciling and tossing divorce papers out?
On the verge of reconciliation? Possibly, so says TMZ. It wasn’t all that surprising when news got out that Vanessa Bryant had filed for divorce from her basketball playing hubby of 10 years. Theirs had been a marriage where Kobe allegedly had had a string of “indiscretions”, including the sexual assault allegations brought against Kobe back in 2003. As we all know, Vanessa stood by her man throughout the whole ordeal, and subsequently the case did not move forward after his accuser refused to testify. The following year, the alleged victim filed a civil suit against the baller. Oh, and what did Vanessa receive for supporting her husband even though he had cheated on her? A $4 million 8 carat purple diamond ring, dubbed the “I’m sorry” ring. What a nice piece of bling that was!
In December, Vanessa filed for divorce from Kobe and since then we’ve heard all about Mrs. Bryant given ownership of the couple’s three homes. Cha ching! It seemingly felt like Vanessa had simply had enough of his alleged “philandering” and it was time to move on with her life. And now, we hear that the two may be reconciling after all. The divorce apparently would not have been final until June of this year, so there is still a lot of time to see if they can work it out between them. These two have been together for a long time, since 1999 when they first met, and have two daughters together. Perhaps they’re having second thoughts on splitting because of their girls, but we all know that staying together for the sake of the kids is not a good idea. We’ll see what happens…
