Divorces are a frequent occurrence among the rich and famous in California, but calling off a divorce only happens once in a blue moon, and that is exactly what basketball superstar Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa have done, it seems.
On Friday Vanessa Bryant publicized the news via her Instagram page, saying "We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled. Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together. Kobe & Vanessa." Isn’t that sweet? Almost like a second wedding, and it was even preceded by the customary expenses. In this case the money was spent on lawyers and asset estimates, instead of a cake and flower arrangements, but romance is everywhere after all.
As of yet, the details of the reconciliation are unknown. The couple were supposedly in the process of dividing their assets and that included selling the Newport house, owned by Vanessa Bryant. The place, which has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and five fireplaces, went for $3.2 million, according to the LA Times – a hefty fee for a mock divorce. Well, they might have lost that, but at least they have each other right? As well as the three other Newport homes under Vanessa’s name of course. The houses were transferred to her after the divorce proceedings began in December 2011, after ten years of marriage. Thankfully, now all of that is behind the couple. We would, of course, like to wish the Bryants all the best in their, um, continued life together.
