Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa files for divorce, ending 10-year marriage

Vanessa Bryant files for divorce after 10 years of a successful marriage with Kobe Bryant. The news about their marriage falling apart makes it to the headlines and remains as one of the most searched items on line. Despite a strong relationship and a sought after marriage both of them have decided to call it quits.

The Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana, Calif., stated that both of them have "irreconcilable differences." and is being represented by celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who also is representing Maria Shriver in her divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Vanessa has requested for joint legal and physical custody of the children, as did Kobe which happens to be an unresolved issue. "The Bryants have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a Judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012."

The Bryants "ask that in the interest of our young children and in light of the upcoming holiday season the public respect our privacy during this difficult time."

Some people are just taking a laugh out of this decision especially at this time. Apparently Kobe Bryant is getting extremely rich this season. Bryant is expected to make more than $25 million this season, almost $28 million next season and more than $30 million in 2013-14. Now that could be a hint for Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa that she has actually filed for the divorce.

Both parties haven’t really talked to the media about this unfortunate end to their decade of marriage hood. In fact they have been consciously avoiding confrontation with the press. Asked about the divorce, Lakers forward Pau Gasol told the Los Angeles Times, "I didn't know anything about it. This is the first time I hear. That's something I wasn't aware of. It's out of my hands."

Their marriage had a couple of prevalent problems which had also been somewhat settled last year but their impact was still there. Last year, the Bryants settled litigation with a former maid who accused Vanessa of harassment. The Bryants countersued Maria Jimenez for violating a confidentiality agreement by talking to news reporters about the family. Aside from that Bryan and Vanessa also faced a couple of violation charges. Both of them have tried to keep their marriage and affairs undercover and their fans or followers don’t know much about the private lives. Perhaps this is why they are too eager on knowing what caused this split.
