After news broke last month that Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant and longtime wife Vanessa would be separating there has been much speculation as to how the couple’s assets would be distributed.
Now, TMZ is reporting that Vanessa is getting quite the haul after a decade of marriage to Bryant.
“Vanessa is walking away with $75 million, which we’re told represents close to half of their total assets, estimated at around $150 million.
TMZ previously reported several transfers of property earlier this year between Kobe and Vanessa. It turns out, based on the property settlement, Vanessa scored a clean sweep, snagging ALL THREE of the former couple’s mansions in the Newport Beach area. Vanessa gets the estate the couple was living in, the estate her mom is living in, and she gets the new estate that had been under construction for 2 years and was just completed.
It’s been a hard year for Bryant, and it’s still only January, but this certainly isn’t going to help matters much. Still, Bryant hasn’t been letting his home life impact his on-court performance, as he’s averaging 30.4 points per game, which leads the NBA.
