KCBS-TV REPORT: KOBE AND VANESSA DIVORCE IMMINENT: KCBS in Los Angeles is reporting “a divorce is imminent“ between Kobe and Vanessa Bryant.
The report, which was originated by Mediatakeout.com, has a source saying, “They’ve been trying [to make things better] now for more than a year, but it’s just not working out … Kobe’s in the process of moving out [of their home] and both are ready to officially end things.”
The Bryants signed no pre-nuptial agreement (ouch!), so the divorce settlement will likely be a quiet, straight forward affair (no pun).
Vanessa is in line to score half of Bryant’s reported “$200M in earnings. … the Lakers currently owe him $88.6 million in salary over the next four seasons. And he has a number of very lucrative endorsement deals - including one with $18M left on it from Nike.”
No pre-nup for Kobe? Talk about getting put through a ($4M forgive-me) ringer.
UPDATE: KCBS-TV has since taken the story off its website. Go here for more on that brilliant editorial decision.
