It’s official Vanessa and Kobe Bryant have gotten back together and dropped divorce proceedings. The statement came from Vanessa herself when she posted this below message on Instagram.
The news come just over a year from the date Mrs Bryant filed for a divorce after 10 years of marriage to the athlete. She filed divorce papers back in December 2011 and at the time, Kobe risked losing half his worth, an estimated $150 million.
The news even sparked controversy encouraging rapper Drake to reference Bryantt’s potential financial loss in his single “Stay Schemin”. “Hate it had to be him. B*tch you was with me shooting in the gym,” he raps. Recently Vanessa even commented on the line via her Instagram account.
“I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life,” She wrote.
“I really wish people would stop THINK and then realize that they are being sucked into someone’s clear intention to monetize and gain attention off of our family’s heartache. This is real life. I hold down our home life so my husband can focus on his career. It’s a partnership.”
Drake has since apologized for offending Vanessa. In fact, it was Vanessa who confirmed an apology was issued when she wrote days later, “Since my husband isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.”
Well, congrats to the Bryants.
