Reconciled: Kobe & Vanessa Call Off Divorce
Don’t get Judge Mablean Ephriam from “Divorce Court” on the line just yet!
Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa announced that they are back together.
Vanessa took to Instagram to announce that the couple had worked through their differences.
“We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled. Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together.”
Kobe went on Facebook to share the news with his fans there.
“I am happy to say that Vanessa and I are moving on with our lives together as a family,” Kobe wrote. “When the show ends and the music stops, the journey is made beautiful by having that someone to share it with. Thank you all for your support and prayers!”
The NBA shooting guard, who has won five NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers, first started dating Vanessa in 1999. The couple became engaged in May 2000 and married in April 2001.
In 2003, the couple faced a tremendous challenge in their relationship because Bryant admitted to cheating on his wife with a 19-year-old hotel employee who accused him of sexual abuse. The case was later dropped.
Vanessa, 30, filed for divorce from Kobe, 34, in 2011, citing irreconcilable differences. They have two daughters together: Natalia, 9, and Gianna, 6.
