Photo: Vanessa Bryant Withdraws Petition for Divorce from Kobe
In December of 2010, Vanessa Bryant (born Vanessa Cornejo Ubrieta) filed for divorce from the Lakers player after nearly a decade of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. Many speculated the divorce was a result of years of infidelity of Kobe’s part.
However, just a few months later, rumors began that the two were calling off the divorce, as Vanessa was spotted at her husband’s side at a game against the Atlanta Hawks on Valentine’s Day.
The divorce petition remained even as they seemed to be reconciling, but nearly a year later the divorce petition has been dropped.
The couple have been married for ten years, but have been a couple since 1999. They have two daughters, Natalia Diamante Bryan and Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant.
Both Kobe and Vanessa announced via Twitter that they had called off their divorce.
The two were recently spotted together and attended the Hurricane Sandy relief concert on December 12. The couple had reportedly be inseparable since.
