Vanessa Bryant Gets $75 Million From Kobe Divorce


VANESSA BRYANT has secured a $75 million divorce settlement from husband Kobe Bryant, according to TMZ.com. Vanessa will reportedly receive the huge lump sum as well as three properties the couple own in Newport Beach, California.
Sources say Bryant will take full ownership of the mansion the pair lived in, as well as the new home they had been building for the past two years. Furthermore, she is now the owner of a third property where her mother had been living. The $75 million payout is exactly half of the couple's estimated $150 million fortune. According to the New York Post, it's still unclear when Vanessa filed for divorce from the NBA star, but Kobe signed the paperwork on December 1, 2011. A joint statement by the former couple read, "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". Vanessa supported Kobe when 19-year-old hotel employee Katelyn Faber accused him of sexual assault in 2003 - the criminal case was eventually dropped, though a civil case was settled out of court. As for the reason behind the divorce, sources say Vanessa was "fed up with her husband's alleged philandering.
The couple had never signed a prenuptial agreement, meaning they were forced to split their fortune 50/50 by Californian law. A similar situation could occur in the divorce of Katy Perry and Russell Brand, who are also alleged to have avoided a pre-nup.
