Kobe Bryant Lost $75 Million. Why Are Folks Mad At Vanessa?

According to TMZ, Kobe Bryant‘s divorce is finalized and he lost more than one. He lost so hard, Google Maps and the map that guides Dora the Explorer couldn’t help him. Vanessa Bryant is walking away with half of Kobe’s assets, worth $75 million, including their three mansions. Kobe’s bank account got Adebisi’ed with NO lube, and I’m not even feeling bad for him. Besides that fact that he’s still rich with the rest of his $75 million, Vanessa has earned the right to take him for half of what he’s worth. However, many people don’t feel the same. Folks (mostly men) are MAD at Vanessa Bryant. And I’m wondering why. I know she’s never shot a basketball before but she has earned this money by sticking through Kobe’s crap.

First of all, people (one again, they’re mostly men) are calling Vanessa Bryant a golddigger. I don’t know Vanessa’s life now or before she took Kobe’s last name but if she was a golddigger, she has put in WORK. She’s been married to the man for 10 years, and according to the state of California, that earns her half of Kobe’s riches. I don’t care if she made sure to wait til 10 years and 1 day. She’s still legally allowed to CLEAN UP. Vanessa is Kobe’s wife and the mother of his 2 daughters. Doesn’t the golddigger label fall by the wayside at one point?

Either way, they didn’t have a prenup, so Kobe left himself really unprotected (clearly in more than 1 way but I’ll get to that later). There’s no reason for folks to be mad at Vanessa for taking him for half of his wealth. NONE.

Vanessa Bryant Divorce

Yes girl. Give him the side-eye

In fact, let me use this opportunity to address the men who are somewhere talmbout “This is why I’ont wanna get married.” I want them to remember that they don’t have assets. Yes, Kobe Bryant’s wife got half of his riches. But you don’t have half of anything to get. And like I said before, half of zero is still zero, sirs. It’s always the people who don’t have a pot to piss in, a window to throw it out of, or e’em a simple bus pass talmbout golddiggers when they don’t have the right. “Women always tryna come for what their men work for.” Sir, your net worth looks like the national deficit. You need to #OccupyASeat. Here’s one —> \__

If your net worth looks like the temperature of Antarctica, there should be no reason for you to be talmbout golddiggers. You don’t have any gold to dig because you’re worth TIN. Sit this conversation out and stay in your lane. “RENT EM SPOONS” is your big business idea and you talmbout “I can’t have a woman try to come for half.” Go somewhere and slap yourself. “HELL YEAH I’MA MAKE A WOMAN SIGN A PRENUP!” Trust me. I want NO parts of your collection of FUBU t-shirts. Keep that to yourself. (-_-) Every time I see some regular dude get all in his feelings about some celebrity’s divorce settlement, I just wanna do this:

Golddiggers do exist but they’re not some type of bug infestation. Most men worried about them don’t have cause to when they’re worth LINT. The ones who are butthurt on Kobe’s behalf are extrapolating his situation to theirs when they have no reason to. They’re mad at Vanessa and calling her a golddigger because they have delusions of grandeur that some woman might wanna put them in the poor house (which they don’t realize they’re already in). Meanwhile, their credit score looks like someone’s weight and they want a prenup. WOMPINGTON! Just… No. Anyway, lemme leave these these men alone. Like future earning power did. (-__-)

Back to the matter at hand. Another reason why I’m really not mad at Vanessa Bryant for taking Kobe’s coins is because he had the nerve to stick his peen into any Love Pocket in his path. Word on the street is that Kobe cheated with over 100 women. ONE HUNNID LOVE POCKETS BESIDES HIS WIFE’S! *counts 5 multiples by 3 divides by 2 times a 100.* That is 100 women too many! And we won’t even talk about his rape trial. WE WILL NOT!

Woman scorned

WELP.

If a man cheats on me (especially with no protection) and we’ve taken a vow before God and my Naija family (who got clothes custom made for the occasion), I’ll take him for EVERYTHING he owns. Even his socks will be mine. And his favorite basketball shorts that he wears to bed. EVER-REE-THANG. Herpes, AIDS, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea. They are ALL real and let’s be honest. I’m sure Kobe didn’t make it a habit of wrapping up before doing all this hoshit. He wasn’t just being a dog, but he was disregarding Vanessa’s health. putting Vanessa’s life in danger. And science AND math say it’s highly probable that it burned when Kobe peed at least once in these 10 years of infidelity.

So that $75 million that Vanessa’s getting? Let’s call it even for Kobe playing the whacking game with his junior like he was single. Needless to say, I fully support Vanessa Bryant’s settlement. That’s the least Kobe could have given her (and I’m really afraid of the other “gifts” he might have given her). VANESSA, GETCHO MONIES ON GIRL!

Meanwhile, I wonder what Kobe’s doing now that he’s half as rich. He’s probably somewhere listening to Drake songs. But that brother’s gon be just fine. He’s still sitting on $75 million. He’s far from poor. Besides, it even looks like Kobe didn’t try to contest this settlement, which means Vanessa must have more dirt on him than a New Jersey beach.

The moral of this story is: Getchu a prenup if you’re rich. Keep your peen in your pants. Divorce before year 10. ACT RIGHT WHEN YOU GET MARRIED! It’s cheaper to keep her (happy).

I ain’t got time. But like I said. Fellas. We don’t want half your XBOX or your collection of wheat timbs. This doesn’t apply to you.

My peoples, how do y’all feel? Are you mad at Vanessa or do you think Kobe deserves it all? Tell a G.

P.S. Feel free to drop a link of this post under the many butthurt Facebook statuses you see about this settlement. I’ve seen many already.

    I’m not mad at Vanessa AT ALL. Kobe’s ass was too dumb to use a calculator (to figure out how much his ho shit would cost him in real dollars) or consult a lawyer (who likely would have told him to divorce her prior to year 10 to keep some of his coins). That’s what happens man, that’s what happens.

      MMHMM! Kobe’s goofass shoulda kept the fact that he didn’t have a prenup in mind before he went to spread his un-royal peen to every women he saw. I DON’T HAVE #SYMPATATION for him!

        OMG! What is the world coming to? She put in WORK? The only work she put in was lying on her back with her legs up in the air, that entitles her to $75m? lol You make me laugh!
        She’s entitled to it because she was married to him? lol You women make me laugh!
        Was she on the floor at every practice? Did she put in thousands of hours of practice? Did she push her body through every barrier to become the best?
        Did she break all her psycholoal limits to become great?
        Did she develop herself so life could pay her for her efforts? The answer is no!
        All she did was marry someone who did, so you thinks that gives her rights to all his assets? That is disgusting! In a world where women seek equality, they still can’t find it in themselves to get up off their asses and go out and do it for themselves, instead they take the easy option and just get married to someone who has done it. What is sickening is that this type of behaviour is being encouraged.
        I can bet that most of the women who think what she has done is good are broke asses themselves.
        I truly respect independent women who go out there and get it themselves, multi millionaires who are successful, but not the Kim Kardashian types who have had their success from spreading their legs, the ones who respect themselves and put in effort to achieve the best in life.
        The most unactractive thing about a woman is her sense of entitlement to a man’s wealth when she has done nothing to create it. If she thinks by being in a relationship with him, she has “earned” half his wealth, then she is effectively a prostitute. This type of sense of entitlement is de moralising society.
        If Kobe and her split up, he should have taken care of her through finacial terms, but she has not earned a right to half his wealth!
        More importantly, I do not agree with him cheating on her, he shouldn’t have got married to her if he wanted to poke other women. The justice would have been for him to walk in on her in bed with another man, not her taking half his money. Oh but I forget, this ain’t about justice, we all know the women here would take the money over being in bed with another man, why, because it’s all about the money, the ease of taking it, and the laziness of not getting off their asses and putting in the work to go get it themselves.
        Look at Oprah, if she could do it, any other woman could do it.
        Ask her if she would skank it of another man, bet she would say she would rather go out and create it herself!

          Your logic is astonishingly stupid. Vanessa was not a whore, she was his wife. W-I-F-E. Wifeys have more privileges than a hooker because they are worth more to a man’s household and image. Especially a man trying to build a legacy.

          They get a diamond ring, a new last name, and a new life. They also get a soul mate that vowed before God to love, cherish, and support their spouse and household. They promise to forsake all others and to stay in good times and bad. They also get responsibilities that no whore would stay around for. Vanessa gave Kobe a decade of her life. Her beauty, youth, and time she could have been with someone else. She gave him precious children. She gave him emotional support and was behind him in all things. She was there for him in his good times and bad. She forsake all other. She loved, cherished, and supported. He didn’t.

          Who was taking care of the kids while Kobe was at practice, partying, or whoring around town? Who put their body through various hormonal changes, weight gain, and stress having kids? Who was making baby formula, changing diapers, going to doctor appointments, and raising the kids while Kobe was gone? Who was teaching them their alphabets, reading them bedtime’s stories, and showing them to tie their shoes?

          When the rape charges occurred who stood by his side right in the courtroom? Front row? Who took him back after he had affair after affair? Who made Kobe marketable and redeemable again by her willingness to forgive him even after the rape charges and affairs? If not for her being a shield and a warrior for him in the press, he probably wouldn’t have played basketball long enough to make all those millions he had. She was the reason he still had a job and continued to work. She stood by his side until everyone gave him another chance. She was a damn good wife.

          You think Kobe would have stayed with her if she wasn’t worth it? Do you really think Kobe Bryant, who has lot of options ,would have stayed with her if she wasn’t the best of the best? The best mother for his kids, his best back up, his best warrior and shield for when he screwed up?

          He has to many options for that, and if he thought she was after his money he would have had a pre-nup to defend himself. He didn’t. Why? Because he knew what he got and he liked it. He could have just kept sleeping around free as a bird, but he choose to marry her. Just like he choose to sleep around and increase the risk of her getting AIDs or an STD because of him. Just like he choose to make a mockery of their marriage, her forgiveness and love, and the damage it did her and their children emotionally.

          How was she repaid for her contributions the marriage? With lies, cheats, gossip, and public ridicule? By having to watch her daughter cry with all the things, the other kids where saying about their daddy? With him risking her health with all kinds of STDs because he couldn’t be faithful? Is this what she deserves? To possibly die because of AIDs? To face the chance of never seeing her daughters married, dating, or growing up? And you’re saying she doesn’t deserve anything? Are you serious?

          A marriage is a partnership. She was with him while he was making those millions. She held him down during every scandal and screw up and picked up the pieces afterward. When you get a divorce the breadwinner is suppose to leave the other spouse in the same lifestyle that she had during the marriage. She was a rich woman while they were married, and now she’ll be after their divorce. Kobe could have stopped any of this from happening by a pre-nup, faithfulness, or avoiding marriage in the first place. He did none of these things.

Women like men must work to earn their living and that’s it! No short cut like that skank who married the old billionaire and then died….Its a known trend and fact women are such gold diggers….and all this this crap about Equal rights! So earn it ladies!

    To all those’s thats actin like it was your dough, gone over to the corner and have a seat \_ and be quiet! He gave away his good thing and it cost HIM! Not you.

        Okay?!?!?! Because half the heaux that are hollerin’ about her being a gold digger would have left him a long time ago…I’m not saying it’s cool to condone cheating, but if that woman could stick by him through all of that, then more power to her. She deserves every damb dime of that money, and every inch of foundation that those mansions were built on.

    I was just saying this to my cousin on fb who was talm this same “Vanessa’s a gold-digger” bs. Ain’t NONE of these dudes bringing up all this sticking & moving that Kobe’s been doing over the TEN WHOLE YEARS they were married.

    So, if Vanessa was married to a manager at Office Max for ten years and had two kids, and dealt with him having affairs with Office Max sales associates at every turn over 10 years, and she divorces him and gets half of his $52,000 salary… she still a gold-digger?

    Never mind. Forget the question. No, she’s not. She’s a divorcee.

    I’m so sick of boys, yes I said boys, yelling gold digger every time a woman divorces her rich husband. Hell he married her he was and is a grown man. He married her of his own free will (she wasn’t pregnant so there wasn’t a shot gun in sight)and smiled while he did it. She was with him for 10 yrs, during which time they amassed their fortune. Notice how I said their fortune. Well that’s because they are married which makes it their money not his money both by law and in the eyes of God, who I do believe was at the wedding.

    During their marriage he cheated, and cheated, and cheated, got accused of rape then admitted having sex with the girl, cried elephant tears while holding Vanessas’ hand during a statement broadcast all over the country, then he cheated, and cheated, and cheated, etc., etc. All the while she was the one he came home to. She was the one who celebrated when he won a game. She was the one to comfort him when he lost and came home beating himself up about it. She was his rock, his normal for 10 freakin years.

    He hasn’t said boo about the splitting of their assets probably because he knows how wrong he has done her. If he ain’t sayin nothin then these boys need to shut it and keep it movin.

    And you girls, yes I said girls, who jump on the ‘she’s a gold digger’ wagon with the above mentioned boys…I do not have the time nor energy to deal with y’all today. I’m just gonna SMH take my mule and go.

      I’m sorry, you and the person who wrote this thing are both unintelligent and ridiculously daft. How come she didn’t divorce him during the rape trial? how come she didn’t leave when she thought she was cheated on?
      why did she have to wait till she knew she would get all the money? That’s a bonafide gold-digger, and if you don’t think she’s wrong, you’re one too.

      This woman has NEVER worked a day in her life, but she leaves this marriage with 75 million dollars, that’s ludacris. She doesn’t deserve a penny talk less a dime.I don’t think she ever picked up a basketball, she probably can’t even cook and has no college education and has simply been living off this man for years. 10 years is nothing, she deserves to go out with what she brought into the marriage KMFT.

        So I usually don’t comment on this site, being a professional lurker, and all, but this kind of buffoonery needs to stop.

        First of all, how are you commenting on someone’s lack of an education when you can’t even spell “ludicrous” right?? I’m just sayin’.

        Second of all, you’re making a whole lot of assumptions without ANY facts. Maybe she can whip up a mean 4 course meal on a daily basis! Were you having regular meals at the Bryants? And if you think raising two kids is not work, even with the help of nannies, then it is you that is daft, sir.

        Third of all, if you knew anything about marital law in the state of California, then you would know that had she left him at any point during or after his admission of infidelity, she would have essentially walked away with the same package. After 10 years, the only extra thing she is entitled to is lifetime alimony, which she didn’t even ask for.

        I’m just so blown that he’s the one who disrespected the sanctity of their marriage and she’s the one getting crap for it. Something tells me that if she were a more homely looking chick, no one would make the gold digger argument.

        In the meantime, you make sure to get a prenup before you get married. I’m sure you don’t want some chick taking half of your IKEA living room set.

        People who minimize infidelity and the emotional cost amaze me. The foundation of marriage should always be fidelity. So many have made a mockery of marriage that people forget this simple fact. Kobe made his choice. He chose infidelity over his money, because he obviously didn’t care about his wife and children. Just like she couldn’t control what Kobe did with his “male member”, he couldn’t control her feet “walking out the door” whether it was 5 years in to the marriage or “strategically” 10 years in. In my opinion it takes a lot of “strategy & forethought” to cheat on your spouse multiple times as well. Bottom line, he could have saved his money with a simple pre-nup. These type of multi-million dollar settlements are what brought about the rise in pre-nups any way. 30 years ago, nobody even really knew what a pre-nup was, now you have guys who make $60K or less talking about them !!! This only matters to people because of the astronomical amount of money involved. When Michael Jordan & Tiger woods got divorced it was the same thing. The average Joe who goes through a divorce usually has to split all the equity in his house, his 401K, any cash savings & pay child support too. It is just relative to his income. So what is the difference? Eddie Murphy has been talking about “Half” for over 20 years ! Even if Vanessa had a Doctorate Degree & made $300K a year, it still would not compare to his income & people could always make the same argument that he was the “breadwinner”. But they are married & marital assets are marital assets. Period. Why do people want to blame the law, when they know what the law is when they decide to get married. I personally am glad the laws exist, because all this commentary on the web just proves if it was left up to the man to determine what you would get, it would ALWAYS be something close to nothing. And this is what I want to know, if everybody thinks $75 million is too much for her & her two children, why doesn’t anyone question whether $150 million is too much for Kobe ? In the grand scheme of things, he plays basketball, he is not saving the world, and he himself is no Rhodes Scholar ! I am sure that he can live more than a comfortable life on a fraction of that, so why the double standard ? Because he “earned ” it ? This whole debate is utterly ridiculous !

        Clearly you are uneducated and or young, dumb and full of shit ….we will roll with all of the above.

        You don’t have a clue about marriage. Marriage is a job. It is a corporation. Both parties have a job. Each party has a stake in the running of their marriage aka corporation.

        If someone doesn’t do their job then the marriage aka corporation will suffer or even dissovle as it may. There are laws in place to protect these unions. If they cannot come to a satisfactory conclusion then it comes to an end and a division of the assets.

        Might I suggest if you don’t like following the law, don’t have a fondness for marriage vows, and don’t like women the do us all a favor and have a damn seat. *drops emic*

      For his love? For his emotions? For his caring nature? I think not.

    Awesome. First man to comment. Vanessa deserves whatever she can get. Kobe broke every promise he made to her on their wedding day. She didn’t seek out a rich guy and take him to court. She has been married for over a decade and put up with everything, bared his children and enough heartache to last a lifetime. Despite the payout, she and the kids are still the victim in this sad story.

I only wonder how she did it for so long. Something tells me that she really did love him, though…

    I’m not at Vanessa AT ALL. Kobe proposed to Vanessa on her 18th birthday when he was 21. He was (obviously) running around with her when she was underage, he should be happy he had $150 mil to split, instead of spending his prime NBA years behind bars and just now getting out and jockeying for a spot in the D-League.

    10 years, 2 kids, infinite bullisisht, yup she deserved it. Plus I think she was a good wife – during the rape trial she was front and center in tabloids. She could have seized her fame and thrown Kobe under the bus. But no, she was a good wife and mom, and Kobe ain’t isht off the court.

    Of course she’s not a gold digger, but she is smart. #1 he married a child eventhough he was young himself. He would have continued to lie, cheat and disrespect her. He obviously cannot keep it in his pants. He has a huge ego and probably a small (penis), but he is a celebrity and he will forever have groupies haning on his coat tail. He’s to egomanical to see that it’s his social status that brings the groupies not himself, but he bought the hype of “they all want me and I’m the shit”. For that kind of thinking it cost him what should have been the most important thing on this earth and that’s his family. When a person loses respect for their mate, game over player!! I’m sure she lost all respect for him for the way he treated her and thier children. Was he thinking about them when he sticking all those other women? Bet not, but I bet he’ll think about them from now on!!!! Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

    I am sure she didn’t come out of this physically unscathed either. Even though it ain’t broadcast, the odds are pretty good that if he caught something, she got it too. Folks that are moaning about everything Kobe has lost needs to realize he could have messed up her fertility, or even her life. She could have contracted HPV, HIV, or any of the STDs that for women have very few symptoms sometimes not until it’s too late.

    He disrespected his daughters and could have put their mother out of commission with his hoe-dog ways. He has already shown he doesn’t wrap it up, and is probably arrogant enough to brag about it amongst his peers.

    Is she a gold digger? No. She is a woman is is probably pissed, disappointed, and hoping she will not have to deal with the fallout from a man who knew better but did not do better. Her and Elin should go out for drinks and maybe start a foundation for women who marry nasty rich bastards but need to take care of themselves now.

      YAHZ!! The real life First Wives Club! I love it. Kobe and Tiger obviously have similar tendencies. Damn shame these successful black athletes…these men that little boys look up to–think that its perfectly okay to cheat on their wives. SMH
      Vanessa did good. The fact that some men are complaining that this woman stuck it out, and tried to honor her vows by staying with a man that cheated, is a hot ass mess. I submit that if they think that it makes her a gold digger that she stayed with him for so long, they probably aren’t worth being married to. I’m glad they let me know they ain’t isht, so I can rule them out.

    Loved this post!!!

    “Herpes, AIDS, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea. They are ALL real and let’s be honest. I’m sure Kobe didn’t make it a habit of wrapping up before doing all this hoshit. He wasn’t just being a dog, but he was disregarding Vanessa’s health. putting Vanessa’s life in danger. And science AND math say it’s highly probable that it burned when Kobe peed at least once in these 10 years of infidelity.”

    This alone is the reason any S/O of mine would earn a front row seat to ALWAYS looking over his shoulder since I would be doing the same with my health. And the males with plastic baggies for brains (not the fancy zip-lock kind but the fold over kind) “defending” Kobe need to go ask their low-expectation enablers for an upgrade and shut the hell up.

    I saw this post on tumblr, and all I can say is “Congrats Vanessa!” LOL!

    But seriously when my Mr. told me about this last night I said “I don’t care. But good for her, that’s what he gets.” I have never liked Kobe’s arrogant attitude, and I feel he got what he deserved.
    I remember years ago sitting at home in Los Angeles watching the local news and Kobe had just married, and he told the cameras something like, “Yeah, I’m married now, so all you hoodrats and hoochies can move on.”
    As a black woman I know many black men use that term when talking about ANY black woman from the neighborhood, she could be a virgin on her way to get a PhD, but that’s what she’ll get labeled as because she is black and lives in the inner city. That’s who I felt like Kobe was addressing, almost every black woman. I have no problem with interracial relationships, but when you EXCLUDE your own ‘race’ I have a MAJOR problem with that.
    If Kobe had married a black woman the outcome probably would have been the same, and in my opinion it seems like he thought he was doing so much better because he did NOT marry a black woman.
    Besides that, even with her NOT being a black woman, I have NO qualms with Vanessa. The judgement is what it is, the law is she takes half, fine. If you don’t like it there are many options, 1st and foremost, HONOR YOUR WIFE/HUSBAND! Or you can work to change laws, get a prenuptial agreement, or don’t get married.

    I am male.

    The article was hard to read. The voice was clear and focused. The purpose was concise. The skew & seemingly bitter rage is what made it difficult to read.

    There is no doubt in my mind that this was written for the consumption of wronged women. I’m sure there are plenty out there.

    Nobody forced me to read this article and I honestly have no reason to comment as I know that it will lead no place beneficial.

    BUT- I felt some kind of way about Luvvie going in on ain’t worth sh*t dudes. I currently ain’t worth….

    I ain’t even afraid for being taken for half. I’m a great person(at least I strive to be).

    This going off because men are upset that they feel Kobe was done wrong is no different than y’all going off because y’all feel Vanessa was done wrong.

    Tell me it ain’t hypocritical of y’all to be that way and I won’t waste another keystroke. Tell me she deserves $75 million simply because Kobe is worth $150 million. Because she does not deserve that amount. Her pain isn’t any greater than a poorer woman’s pains.

    Now, girly get what she get. Maybe this was the best decision for her to make. But marriage ain’t about dropping somebody because they done you ill. Next time y’all get ready to go in on somebody, you’ll remember that their business is just that. You calling people out for being nosy is unfortunately no different than what they are doing…and I’m feeding the cycle as well.

    I’m simply not ranting out of emotional disparity but as an attempt to see if any of you have any reasoning at all OR if you are simply basal creatures content on indulging your primitive urges. Yes. I took it there.

      You’re right marriage is not about dropping someone because they done you ill. It surely isn’t sticking by a man & teaching your daughters that rich men can do no wrong. Divorce & consequences are for those that disrespect the sanctity of marriage. Stop crying over someone who don’t give any dambs about you.

      Congratulations on missing the ENTAH point sir. Women aren’t saying that Vanessa should get half because Kobe has it to give. Women are saying she deserves half because that woman gave up 10 years of her life, all of her youth and bore two of this man’s children, only for him to repeatedly disrespect their vows. Women that are angry about that would be just as angry about it if the sista did the same and her man was dead broke. Her trying to keep her marriage together for 10 years in the face of REPEATED infidelity is not her being a “gold digger” because she was doing her duty in the eyes of God.
      Now if you are a man that thinks she’s a gold digger, but you don’t have a pot to piss in nor a window to throw it out of, you look silly. I darest say that you would be looking for some money too if you spent 10 years of your life with a rich woman that cheated on you with over a hundred men, #IJS…

    I think that what alot of people (both men and women alike)don’t realize is the fact that although Vanessa never made a free throw or three pointer, she helped Kobe make that money. A great deal of, if not most, of the 150 million that was split was made not on the court, but through endorsements.
    These endorsement deals may not have been nearly as lucrative for a divorced superstar who was once accused of rape as opposed to happily married family man (with two beautiful baby girls) who weathered a very rough patch but managed to keep it together. This is where Vanessa “earned” her 75 mil
    Bottom line, Vanessa agrees to stand by her man and put on a show to keep Kobe marketable but with the understanding that when the ten year mark arrives she gets to bounce. Say what you will about Kobe -he’s arrogant, a rapist, cheated with 100+ women- but one thing he is not is STUPID. Does anyone believe that this caught him off guard? Kobe didn’t know that at the ten year mark she’d get half? Kobe knew this was coming years ago. Rev and Man-Man at the barber shop today where alot more upset then Kobe seemed to be in the media I saw.
    Vanessa finally got fed up? Nawl. *in my Luvvie voice* Vanessa’s been foolin Kobe and waiting til now so she could stick him for half? Nawl. Papers were signed in ’04 and laid out the exit plan and compensation? Brother Franklin, give em a lil sumpin….

    I’m not saying that Kobe wasn’t at fault for his unfaithful behavior….but I. The big scheme of things, Vanessa didn’t come into that relationship with shit, and yes she should be compensated for the yrs she spent by his side, as the kids should he well taken care of. But the fact that she will receive 3 homes and 75 mil is obscene and overkill. The whole “rape debacle” happened almost 10 yrs ago. And she has plotted and planned to do this since. Seems almost like premeditated murder. Had this been a man the women amenning this shit would not look at it in this sense. Yall would be saying how he is a man and can fend for himself and that he shouldn’t get a dime. Women have done these things for yrs. Look at the case of shanie and Shaq….she was caught laundering his cash to some personal trainer and there was no uproar. Yall always speak of double standards, but clearly some double standards weigh heavily in woman’s direction. If Kobe was your brother or son, im sure yall wouldn’t feel the same.

        And for the record Kobe Bryant doesn’t give 2 fcuks about anyone but himself! Then again I don’t think he gives 2 flying fcuks about himself either, because if he did he wouldn’t be out there cheating on his wife and kids with these skanks. It is a choice. He chose to do what he did. No one forced him. He is a grown man yes? No? He knows the difference between right and wrong.

        He has also shamed his family and any real true friends if he has any. People can’t look Vanessa in her face knowing what her husband was doing behind her back and in front of her face. Eff what you heard. His moral compass is so fcuked up I am surprised he can find his way home.

    I’m an attorney, in the end Kobe won in this divorce settlement yes she received three homes and 75 million but was due on Kobe terms. He offered those terms after they divorced. The reason was to eliminate child support payment and maybe reduce is alimony. A judge will not award her a large lump some of child support due to the fact she received three homes and 75 million. Once up keep and taxes begin hitting her the reality will soon set in, that the money will not last without her own source of income. In about two or three she will have spent half of 75 million jus on the housing up keep. While Kobe can finish out the rest of his nba that worth 90 million. Once its all said in done Kobe will benefit from this and not the ex wife

      I think his daughters lose. They will inevitably hear about their father’s bad behavior, and it is my hope they do not expect to be treated this way when they are grown women and start dating. There is some truth to the idea that girls date and marry guys like their dads.

      Hopefully, their mother isn’t bad-mouthing Kobe in front of them. No matter the issue, unless there is a danger to them, they need to have access to him, and it is never a good idea to be negative about the other parent in full view of the kids. It is always best to take the high road and just be civil.

      Am I Team Vanessa? Not hardly – I think she got married too young and perhaps opportunists in her life told her this was the way to go. She wrote her own destiny when she stayed after the Denver debacle, but I cannot pretend to know why. What I do know is she will be okay, and I don’t see her or her kids ever being destitute or going without.

        I think she is smart as hell and Kobe got what he had coming to him. Kobe had one thing to do in order to avoid this-keep it in his pants. He failed. She wins. #Checkmate

        She wrote a nice check when destiny called and she cashed it. He knew the stakes and yet he kept pushing it until she had enough. I’m sure she isn’t perfect, but she did what she needed to do by playing the role and keeping her mouth shut until she had enough.

        I do agree that his daughters lose because this divorce, the rumors and events leading up to it will be forever memorialized in the media and on the internet forever.

        My only thing is that I hope that she uses this money to generate her own source of income as I’ve yet to hear of any independent business ventures. Others are right, after taxes and trying to keep up with the “lifestyle”, she will need to figure out how to make that money work for her. If she’s smart, she already had all that planned out like it seems she did this divorce.

        As for the men out here that want to use this as a reason not to get married-I’ll just cosign all of what Luvvie said. Keep your tin can until you have something that the Forbes top richest people in the world can write about.

    Let me ask you this ladies. If a man divorces his wife and takes half of her money would you still feel the same?
    take these things into account:
    – the women makes significantly more than the man
    – the women takes care of the children more than the man
    – they have been married ten years.

    Lettuce be reality:
    She did nothing to deserve the money.

    Of course, one could say, “She had his kids.” Unfortunately, it’s not so simple. Was she in the gym coaching, assisting, or doing anything to improve his ability to play basketball? Highly doubt it. Having a man’s kids does not entitle you to their wealth, but if you are the primary care-provider, you should be given the means that will help you take care of his and your’s children. This would mean child support, and only child support, as it is a means to provide for the children. Vanessa is a fully-grown women, and should be able to take care of herself. There is no reason for her to be given $75 million dollars for doing nearly nothing. It seems that a lot of individuals believe that she has the ‘hardest job in the world as a mother,’ but the job is much easier when you are rich and can afford to pay others to assist you in raising your children.

      Reading your post it seems as though you’ve overlooked a few things, so let me help you out. Kobe didn’t blossom and really start earning money with the Lakers until 1999, which was around the same time that they started dating. He waited until she was 18 and then he married her. So she has been with him since he started earning those millions. Okay, I know; she didn’t play basketball. But factor in what being a partner is. In essence, THEY built that corporation TOGETHER. They were a team! 10 years is a long time to love someone. And 10 years is a long time to be in a perpetual state of heartbreak. What does she deserve for enduring that pain? For marrying the love of your life, and having them constantly trample on her heart? And how is $75 million too much? Exactly how much money do you think it takes to raise two children? I suppose since he’s not living with them, they should lose the lifestyle that they’re accustomed to? (I am referring to his daughters.) They should just pack up and move to 123 Anywhere Lane, Joeblow, AK (Sorry Arkansas residents!) and be happy? They were a family, and not ONCE did he consider the damage he would induce to his spouse OR his children when he was out there getting that “groupie love!” So miss me with that ish you talking!!! Think of it as her severance package; she got $75,000 for each chicken coop he raided!

      realistcially this is gonna encourage waste women to look for rich guys, for 75mill i can be in a gay guy marriage for ten years, talkless of being in a marriage with someone i love, you shouldnt marry someone to be rewarded, and if u meant good you would take whats sufficient for you, and 75 is more than enough, i truely beleive kobe’s dumb first of all, and secondly the money was an incentive to marry “ugly kobe” as you women call him, ten years is a short marriage, and kobe was always gonna be a star with or without her, his talented, to have 2 daughters and get free front seat tickets for ten years and put up with a husband thats hardly at home is not work…. and its not been earned, anyone that says its earned if being closed minded…..what you can say is that she outsmarted him which i respect and that shes a good invester. NOBODY ON THIS EARTH KNOWING KOBES UNFAITHFUL WOULDNT MARRY THE DUDE IF WE REWINDED….THE MONEY JUST MAKES IT SWEEETER… its hard finding a woman that could truely love you when your rich, no matter how much they lie to themselves.

    I did not want to post but some of these fellas on here got me shaking my head. Especially the guy that kept saying HOE. I feel like I need to get Medea to his house tell him that all the ladies in his life were wrong slap the shit out of him for being dumb then give him a hug and a good cooked meal because he obviously missed out on some good female loving as a child.

    All the others if you think we ladies are being one sided and all that see what a man has to say. And like all other punks that pick on women maybe see what happens when you comment on this blog.

    He shot himself in the damn foot with his cheating, but that’s not a legal matter. He REALLY blew his leg off land-mine style when he married in Cali-half-yo-money-fornia WITHOUT a pre-nup! If he had one, plus kept his dack in his shorts unless Vanessa was present, he’d be sitting pretty right now.

    Now back to the men being upset over this – Seal and Heidi filed for divorce recently. Under the same California law that gave Vanessa so much of Kobe’s bank, Seal could be swimming like Uncle Scrooge in half of Heidi’s money IF he and Heidi didn’t have a pre-nup. Just as how Vanessa wasn’t on the court bouncing balls, Seal wasn’t walking down runways in jewel-spangled bras and panties; yet, under the same law, they’re both entitled to half of the bigger breadwinner’s assets in the event of a no-prenup divorce.

    Still have something to say?

    The only thing that kind of upsets me is that she didn’t leave sooner. 10 years is a long time to let someone continuously hurt and disrespect you. But, I think he deserves whatever comes to him.

    This “article” and some of these posts sounds just as angry as she feels the “men” are at Vanessa. Im a woman, and I dont think she deserves 1/2 his wealth. I mostly agree with whatever connotations people want to use for Kobes behaviors, but Vanessa isnt some innocent bystander that got duped. No matter what these sports wives say, they know the lifestyle, and they know what they are getting themselves into. They all play the game and milk it for what they can. No one is innocent here except for the children. You know your man is cheater, then get your stuff and bounce. The timing of the divorce was obviously well calculated for the ultimate payday. Waiting 10 years for your man to sleep around, and possibly give you a disease is the way to go, right? Grat lesson for the children. They all deserve each other, because they are all out for themselves. Putting down men who pockets arent deep is also a great idea. I guess your man is balling. And what percent of the US population do you think you are offending with that train of though? Taking half from an average Joe is more devastating that half from a multimillionaire, but you probably knew that right? Nothing any of us say on here will in any way impact the lifes of those we are commenting about, so, lower the tone some of you, youre only making yourself mad.

      i fully agree with what your saying, your probably very compatible with me, ‘your my kind of woman’ open minded and not allowing your emotions to judge the situation, this is why there are so many single women because people are with incompatible dudes and haveing kids with them, 90percent of our population is stupid and i cant but admire people that are in that ten percent, with a mind of there own.

    Who ever actually wrote this article IS a woman and IS bias, so your opinion obviously doesn’t mean anything especially when your article uses words like “talmbout”. Also without a shadow of a doubt no woman should be granted more than 10 million dollars especially if the woman literally did nothing to earn it. I know this is your stupid little ‘brawd’ website but have a little professionalism god. Lastly you really need to invest in a MS Office Suite because you must have never heard of auto correct or proper grammar. Overall I can only assume that this ENTIRE website is as mentally incapable as the author of this article.

    I couldn’t get half-way through this ridiculous excuse of an article without wincing from all the idiotic assertions. Of course this woman is a gold digger. Kobe and Vanessa got married in 2001, only 2 years later in 2003 he was accused of rape and then admitted that he had consensual sex with another woman. Vanessa was aware of all the women Kobe was sleeping with and didn’t get rid of him back then, instead she just had another child in 2006 to solidify her chances of garnering support and more money from the subsequent divorce. This has nothing to do with Kobe being an unfaithful, whore-mongering, backstabbing, two-timing dirtbag; this is all about the money folks.

      she might not be a whore….. but she invested well….. the money was a big part of it so i agree with you, but in all fariness, we are all biased, i would want my daughter to empty kobe, and i would side my son if he was kobe…..kobe could have used his money to do something useful for the black community but i cant blame him now if he doesnt, then when we have no young rich black billionaries black people shouldnt complain…..cuz we hate on our own,

    Moral of the story is , if u going to get married GET A PRENUP, and i am not just talking about men here, women too , whether rich or poor( u could land a jackpot anytime). Miss luvvie would u have been running your mouth the same way if she was the one cheating. Get a pre Nup before u get married or if u were stupid enough not to , watch out for signs,then divorce her before 10 years.
    PS : I am a guy and i have always been on Vanessa’s side. she deserves the money .
    But all you guy’s out there ,whether u r broke n your account is like the Temp of Antartica. First u shld not get married if u don’t have money to afford a lawyer and GET A PRENUP if u do !!!! a word is enough for the wise !

    I’m pretty rich (a multi-millionaire), so I will definitely be getting a pre-nup before I marry someone.

    And I believe Kobe’s wife did deserve a few million. She has earned it. But 75 million? That’s simply excessive.

    Hilarious thing is woman these days.

    They want to be equal with men in society and I fully agree with this whenever i think about it, they have every right to do so, they are humans to ya know.

    Pay equality, job equality, treated quality.

    Then I come across something like this.

    when i read something like this i just want to say what the fuck bitch or do this

    http://th930.photobucket.com/albums/ad149/Deafbhoy2/th_kickChelseavManUtdemoticon.gif

    You wanted to be treated equally but you want to act like a little prick/childish while doing it? Sure this might not be exactly related to kobe bryant issue but…

    “I want to be treated equally in society i want all the same rights and i want respect but i want to be allowed to run my mouth and act like a bitch and always get away with it like i’m 5 years old! If my husband pisses me off a lot i’m allowed to smack him round the face but i expect nothing in return should i act the same way in fact he’s just supposed deal with it but i dont have to do deal with it! yay! because society is like this i never learn to behave properly i often mouth off like i’m 5 years old to him because there are no consequences for me! How come men dont treat us equally and never want to hang out just want us for sex i dont get it? :(

    wake the F up maybe bitch and act you’re age and dont do bitch ass things like Vanessa has done, dedicate your life to him then suddenly leave as soon as you can to steal what he earned and act like its yours now, and act like he rayped you because you didnt like the sex? come the Fuck on

    it is so very sad if you’re in a relationship for 10 years then come out of nowhere and accuse him of raping you in an attempt to end the relationship which you obviously didnt even enjoy just for money, you are a Golddigger and a fucking scheming little bitch, you are not smart, you are an asssshole, dear god.

    Just imagine if a guy did that in a relationship LMAO fact is a guy wouldnt get married to someone for 10 freaking years to someone he didnt truely love just for money cause hes not a fucking asshole lol. (Except the criminals out there but they do their life in punishment for what they do).

    Why do i feel this way, i have a sister who i KNOW would be exactly like this and because she knows in society men just arent allowed to him them otherwise theyd go running to the cops she never f’n learns how to interact socially without being a stuck up bitch. I still love her as my sister but omg she can be a total bitch.

    And after all, what would be the point in doing this…

    http://th930.photobucket.com/albums/ad149/Deafbhoy2/th_kickChelseavManUtdemoticon.gif

    even if you did they would just alert the authorities get you in trouble and never learn how to behave. What can a guy do hope you grow up and stop acting like a whiny 3 year old??? chances are you are just never going to learn!

    thankfully not all women are goldigging bitches in society, sad that a lot of chicks dont understand why they get treated differently but continue to behave like children! guess it will never get through because they are more stubborn than a redneck from the 50s lol

    Again, believe me i think a someone is entitled to the same rights regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation whatever. But if you want this respect? grow up girls like her!

    I’m not even a Bryant fan! I dislike the lakers and somewhat dislike him as a player lol!

    I think this is all fucked up!! Why? Because marriage is meant to be for life. Not just for 10 years so you can take half a mans wealth regardless of the law!! “Till Death Do Us Part” that’s what you say to each other!! Let me ask you who died? No one!!

    Look at what happen to Donald Trump!! If women see other women get away with this crap then next thing you know every women on the earth is going to start pulling this shit!!

    Yet people question why the divorce rate is over 50%…. Greed is a key factor I can tell you that much!!

    Don’t get me wrong, I am all for women rights and being treated as equal humans, though at the same time, as a man if I go work my ass off to the point I make it so my kids don’t have to work, so should my wife!! At the end of the day if my wife wants half of my wealth well then she had better have made the half she wants!! It’s that simple!! If a women wants to be treated as equal then she better act as a equal and not sit around and expect her man to do everything for her!!

    Now had she only wanted say $5m then I get that, but $75m really? That’s greed!! I don’t care who you ask!! Given the fact she didn’t even come close to earning a penny of that!!!

    Women question why men want to fuck around and not get married… Well ladies this is why!! So we don’t have to deal with your bitching 24/7, your lovely gift each month, your mood swings, but most importantly the greed you hide behind your so called “kind acts” you do out of so called “love” you have!! Women before you who acted just like Vanessa has are the reason why!! Vanessa and all the other women like her are the reason why!! SO really you only have your gender to blame for it!!

    I don’t care what the fuck you have to say, This is fucked up and I’m not even a Kobe fan!!

    For everyone who thinks and acts like Vanessa, just do us men all a favor and just kill yourself!! Trust me this world is better off without you!! You are the reason why divorce rates are over 50%, you are the reason why us men want to sleep around, you are the reason why the “Prenup” was created!! Yes you only have yourself to blame!! So take the blame and die you stupid bitches!!

    You wasted all of the KBytes defending Vanessa and using hearsay to justify your commentary because you’re a wannbe Vanessa. I have assets and I shake my head at Kobe’s stupidity, and suggest that you and women like you go to Staples Center when it’s empty.

    There are over 18,000 seats. Take one. Hell, take a row!
