Kobe Bryant’s Divorce Settlement
Kobe may be a slam dunk on the court but the results of the basketball all-star’s divorce is now public and his ex-wife Vanessa may have stolen the ball.
The outcome of famous basketball all-star Kobe Bryant’s divorce is now public, and Vanessa will be walking away with three homes as a result.
Vanessa walks away from the marriage with three homes as a part of a reported $75 million (half of the couple’s estimated $150 million estate) she receives from the divorce settlement.
The couple did not sign a prenup before their marriage. California is a community property state and as a result Vanessa may be entitled to half of her soon to be ex-husband’s fortune during their 10-year marriage. In 2012 alone ESPN estimates Kobe to make $25,244,493.
As for their daughters (8 and 5 years old) Vanessa has requested joint custody according to divorce documents acquired through TMZ. She also requested spousal support which Kobe has agreed to.
Following the filing of the documents the couple released a statement via a representative explaining that all their issues had been resolved in a settlement outside of court.
