Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Plan To Share Custody Of Daughters

Vanessa Bryant filed the papers Friday (December 16) to end her 10-year marriage to Kobe Bryant, but according to the filing made in Orange County, Calif., the couple plans to share both physical and legal custody of their daughters, Natalia, 8, and Giana, 5.

And the estranged couple appear to be trying to keep it civil for their kids. Vanessa and the Lakers star were spotted as they attended a Christmas recital together at their daughters’ school on Friday, shortly after the split was announced.

According to reports, Kobe and Vanessa stayed by each other’s side during the show and left together in the same car. However, while Vanessa was said to be in a good mood, Kobe reportedly looked “somber” and spoke to no one.

    I don’t understand why men like Kobe Bryant get married in the first place.

      Me neither!! If you can’t be monogamous, or don’t want to be monogamous, go hook up with someone who is not looking for a monogamous relationship. Women like that are everywhere! You don’t need to disrespect your wife over and over and over again.

        Women who love money will choose money over morals. The fact that she forgave him for his past discretions and put up with his cheating ways, she deserves everything she’s going through.

          I agree with you, too! If you want respect, you have to demand respect and not put up with this nonsense. Once you do, and he does it again? Well, then it’s all on you.

        Because men don’t want to be with women like that. They want to be with the wholesome virgin type. Not saying it’s right, but it’s reality.

          If that were true, they wouldn’t cheat.

          Clearly, these types want their cake (by marrying the wholesome mother type) and they want to eat it too (by f*ing with the whores).

    Walking around arm in arm seems dishonest to me.

      The picture is likely very old. She’s also smiling.

      It was probably the 10-year mark. In CA, the law for property distribution in a divorce changes once you’ve been married for 10 years or more (I think it goes fully equal, 50-50 of the marital assets, rather than something less, but I don’t know the exact rules). They didn’t have a prenup from what I understand, so she probably will get a LOT more money by waiting until the marriage lasted 10 years instead of filing for divorce sooner. I don’t blame her one bit. If you get married and can’t keep it in your pants, then you deserve everything you get when your wife decides she doesn’t want to put up with it anymore.

        It’s just so gross to me that she would have two children with him first. That’s just nasty, exposing yourself (and your kids) to lord-knows-what kind of diseases. You’re not setting a good example, either, but turning the other cheek again and again. You’re just teaching your daughter’s to put up with way more than they ever should.

        Ladies, if he cheats once: GET OUT! Your self-respect is not worth any amount of money.
