THIS is how Kobe Bryant's Saving His Marriage?
Baller Gets His Game on While in London for the Olympics
Just a month after Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa reportedly called off their divorce in favor of reconciliation, the basketball star looks suspiciously like he's back to the same behavior that caused her to file in the first place.
Vanessa, who wed Kobe in 2001 and has two daughters with him, hung on to her marriage for years, even standing by Kobe during his 2003 trial for raping a female hotel staffer (he insisted the sex was consensual, the case was eventually settled out of court and Vanessa received a $4 million ring from her husband as an apology). But his continued cheating finally became too much for her. In December 2011, she filed for divorce, reportedly due to his inability to stay faithful.
This past June, however, the divorce was put on hold. Unwilling to let Vanessa go (and take the millions in property, cash and assets she'd receive in the split), Kobe allegedly promised to change his ways and recommit to his marriage.
However, in recent days, numerous photos of Kobe - who's currently in London playing for Team USA - appear to show that fidelity is that last thing on his mind. He's been seen partying up a storm with a bevy of gorgeous young women and, in the latest pic, he's stripped off his shirt while surrounded by a gaggle of adoring girls. His explanation: someone spilled a drink on him, forcing him to remove his top.
Could it be true? Sure. But given the baller's history, we're highly skeptical. Vanessa, a little advice from us to you: maybe it's time to take the kids - and the money - and run.
