Kobe Bryant's wife has filed for divorce ... TMZ has learned. Vanessa Bryant filed legal docs Friday afternoon, citing "irreconcilable differences." Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Vanessa -- who stuck by Kobe after he was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado woman in 2003 -- decided to end the marriage because she believes Kobe has been unfaithful ... again. As one source puts it, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough," adding, "This one is the straw that broke the camel's back."

I just don't understand why these rich and famous athletes get married in the first place. Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Kobe, etc. There is obviously a lot of temptation out there with women throwing themselves at them, why even get married? All it ends up doing is screwing them in the wallet.

Does anyone have a guesstimate on how much Kobe's "Empire" is worth? All together?

Wow, I'd be miserable too if I was about to lose half of my money. Live and learn Kobe! Amazing. Vanessa didn't do a thing and is set for about 2 or 3 lifetimes.

I don't think a prenup would really do any good anyways. Don't prenups become void in cases of infidelity?

Amen to that!

Sadly, I remember around that time Kobe was going to get married all of those players around that time calling him crazy.

Players like Magic were like come on, you haven't even become KOBE BRYANT yet. What are you doing!?

I even remember Ron Harper saying he tried to talk Kobe out of it at the time.

Not to say nothing good came from his marriage or anything, but his teammates and parents tried to warn him from doing that at such a young age. Now your married, and this mega superstar and your stuck in the house like Damn! Why did I do that!

I feel for you Kobe. Hate to see this happen to anyone. It's bad for the family, kids, and embarrassing to Kobe.

I know that women that marry athletes need to be aware that there will be cheating involved someway or another. But I mean cmon. We as men need to grow up and learn how treat and care for a family.

And here I am wondering why there is less working marriages than there is working. Sigh....

I pray to God that this gets resolved quick because there goes another marriage to add to the divorce statistics.

I hope this doesn't interfere with our team.

We don't even know if this story is 100% legit. If it is I expect Kobe to play as he did when accused of rape. He kicked a**.

Why am I feeling sorry for Kobe!?

Because he's GETTING DIVORCE. Is that so hard to understand?

No I don't side with Vanessa. These women know very well what they're getting into when they sleep with SUPERSTAR ATHLETES. Aint no surprises in that. Then when they eventually get the SUPERSTAR TREATMENT, they wanna act like a victim. These women (not all of course) will do anything to land a top notch male that will give them the attention they so desperately seek. This chick is getting maybe 200 million dollars she didn't earn PLUS alimony and you wanna know why I feel bad for Kobe?

Kobe wasn't mature enough to get married when he did. That's why all those athletes tried to warn him about the trappings of a star back in the day but he was too stubborn to listen. No way in the world am I going to watch anyone get a divorce and say ha ha that's what you get. Nobody deserves this.

Half his damn money, that's ridiculous.

I would demand a prenup agreement if I was rich, don't care if it offends her. It's just practical.

It is reported that Kobe is worth around $360 mil. If it is true, then Vanessa is set for about 20 to 30 lifetimes, not 2 or 3. Think about it, she gets to keep at least $180 mil. That is HUMONGOUS money for anyone.

lol,

Man, the sh*t never stops coming for the Kobe worshippers when he brings yet another problem on himself.

Kobe proposed marriage. Kobe went, a married man went into that hotel room in Colorado, Kobe didn't learn; not from what happend, not from his inifidelity. He went right back at. Big surprise, given its Kobe, right?

Once again, for seemingly the millionth time, a Kobe problem caused by Kobe.

Once again, Kobe shows for the millionth time, again and again, exactly what he is, a vain, selfish, irresponsible jerk who has feelings for nobody but his own gold plated royal *ss, and we feel bad for Kobe?

And once again, for the millionth time, we have to hear from certain, um, fans (not the accurate word I wanted to use, but Dave wouldn't like the real word that should be used) that they feel bad for Kobe and for what may happen to Kobe. Ahhhh. So sad. Poor Kobe. What on earth did he ever do to deserve all this?

Gee, wonder how you would feel if your wives, husbands or girlfriends did to you, what Kobe did to Vanessa? Bet you wouldn't feel so sorry for them, huh?

Hey, here is a thought for all those who feel bad for Kobe, when the poor, downtrodden, misunderstood guy is done with the divorce he brought on by cheating, why don't you sign over your money and property to him?

That way, you can better express the love and concern for him, the way he always ends up getting shafted by those around him, despite the fact that the god is such a nice and personable fellow who deserves our sympathy.

And while your at, kneel down, get up close between his legs and do what you do best.

And when you are doing it, if Kobe doesn't respond or react, just looks past you like you aint even there, don't feel bad, don't feel neglected or slighted by the great Kobe, because for Kobe you don't exist, in his world, only he does. And what you are doing for Kobe, well, he expects everyone to do for him.

Well I guess since I'm the only one with this point of view in this entire thread I guess I'll take this post towards me.

I for one feel bad for any man that gets trapped by a female and has to pay her half of his hard earned money she had nothing to do with.

Now I can respect certain situations like LL Cool J for example where his wife was with him since high school waaaay before he became LL Cool J. But for these chicks to seek out these stars, finally land them, have their babies and then wind up in a situation where they can get half of their earnings? That's straight up wrong.

Not defending Kobe's behavior that lead to it. But the system is still flawed.

Oh, Kobe proposed to Vanessa. Kobe went in that Colorado room. Kobe had a chance to stop doing that. Kobe didn't. He kept doing it, to his wife.

And you say HE was trapped? lol. Wow, thats just amazing. I don't think in all my life I have ever heard thinking along those lines before.

What was he trapped by Knight, his insatiable desire to cheat on his wife?

Or was he trapped by the fact he couldn't learn from Colorado?

Or was he trapped by the fact that Kobe thinks he can do anything, to anyone and get away with it?

Would you say he was trapped by the first choice, the second or the third? Or all of them?

Well Kight, I guess I can only say you have a novel way of looking at events.

Once again, I'm talking about the system of a woman. ANY WOMAN. Getting half of a man's earnings. NOT the specifics in which Kobe got married. If you read my earlier posts I clearly stated that.

I also talked about Hulk Hogan's wife getting 70% of his estate , several houses and cars AND STILL demanding alimony. And you think that's fair?

I don't care how much of an @ss Kobe has been, Vanessa aint worth no 200 hundred mil. Period.

And if you're gonna keep throwing unnecessary darts, at least spell the name right.

And to continue that, so Kobe wasn't trapped by a female because he proposed? What kind of sense does that make?

Last time I checked, most groupies video chicks, WHICH IS WHAT SHE WAS, end up getting proposed to. Not that unique of a situation.

And what does Colorado have to do with a single thing I'm speaking about which is women getting half?

Give me a break. Kobe proposed, Kobe cheated over and over and all you can talk about is unfairness to Kobe and Kobe being trapped?

Now this is not good for Kobe. It will mess up his game just like it messed up Tiger Woods. I have not heard any details as to what caused Venessa to ask for a divorce, but it is true that women just throw themselves at these athletes.

Isn't it amazing how much power a women has over men with high testostarone levels. The brain has trouble controlling that body from letting him get in trouble. Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_42 Heart Yellow_Flash_Colorz_PDT_42

So now this is about cheating?

There's been plenty of millionaires who had to pay half and the divorce wasn't even about cheating. It was mutual. So why does that happen?

Why don't you start your own Kobe cheating thread since this concept is too hard to grasp.

ONCE AGAIN, FOR THOSE THAT CAN'T READ. MY ISSUE WITH THIS SITUATION IS THAT A MAN HAS TO PAY HIS WIFE 200 MILLION DOLLARS FOR A DIVORCE.

Is that too difficult to understand?

Knight, my bad. I thought it was Kobe who proposed to Vanessa then cheated on her. But I see from your comments it must have been the other way around.

I see I have to spell things out now.

YES SPQR IT WAS KOBE WHO CHEATED. YES SPQR IT WAS KOBE WHO PROPOSED (which has never been debated, and is still pointless.)

BUT FOR THE QUABILLIONTH TIME. I DON'T CARE WHAT KOBE OR ANY OTHER MAN DID IN REGARDS TO CHEATING.

NO WOMAN IS WORTH 200 M.I.L.L.I.O.N. DOLLARS when she had absolutely nothing to do with his earnings!!

Can somebody else please chime in on here and tell me how that point is that hard to understand.

^^^It's just the way it is. Kobe knew that going in, if he didn't want to lose his money, he would have kept his willy in his pants. Or better yet, not even get married. Derek Jeter gets it. Same with that soccer player Ronaldo, who bangs supermodels.

I understand your point completely, and I agree. Always thought it was ridiculous that someone can get half of money they made no real contribution to earning during a divorce.

A woman(or anyone of either gender really) should NEVER get half of the assets in a divorce, unless the assets were all from a business that was ran and owned by both.

I don't feel sorry for any man who cheats on his wife and causes her to divorce him. Doesn't change the fact that it's not fair, or even sane for her to be able to get half of his money in the process.
