Vanessa Bryant is not giving up on trying to save her marriage with basketball star Kobe Bryant.
She filed for divorce from the LA Lakers basketball player in December after he reportedly cheated on her. She reportedly got all three of Bryant’s mansions worth close to $18.8 million.
But now Mrs. Kobe Bryant is hesitating on signing the divorce papers, TMZ is reporting.
The entertainment site says the couple is trying to reconcile and have been spending a lot of time together. But the two have not moved back in together.
California law says Bryant has to wait six months after filing for divorce before signing the documents. The six-month mark expires this weekend but, according to TMZ, she is not ready to let go.
If the two decided to move back in together, they likely will be living in one of her three mansions, which once belonged to Kobe.
The Los Angeles Times says that if the divorce goes through, Vanessa Bryant could receive the properties plus about $75 million, and additional money in child support.
The properties that Mrs. Bryant has transferred to her name include the mansion inside the Pelican Hill Resort which is still under construction worth $ 11.2 million, their other Newport Beach home which was co-owned, worth $2.9 million, and the home which was under Kobe Bryant’s trust worth $4.7 million.
Vanessa Bryant claims she caught her husband with “multiple women” over the years, but she felt the last incident was the final straw, prompting her to file for divorce.
Vanessa Bryant, whose parents are both Mexican, was not believed to have been a favorite of Kobe’s parents. It’s been widely reported that his parents weren’t crazy about him marrying a Latina.
