The last six months haven’t been kind to Kobe. First, the Lakers don’t make it to the championship and just earlier this week, they lose a huge chance to obtain Chris Paul. And now, it appears Kobe and Vanessa have called it quits. We all read the breaking news on TMZ, right? So let’s see here: Two children? Check. Married in the state of California? Check. Married longer than 10 years (they married in April 2001 so that’s about 10 years and 8 months)? Check. It sounds like Vanessa is possibly up for long-term spousal support. Oh and lest we forget that Vanessa didn’t sign a pre-nup which might mean an even bigger payday. This announcement has sent many into a sort of frenzy. While the dissolution of a marriage is a sad situation, this one always had a few layers. Let’s take a little stroll down memory lane, shall we?
