Sometimes it's hard to believe that these two were thisclose to getting divorced back in 2011! Then again, seeing as Kobe and Vanessa Bryant didn't sign a prenup and he was about to hand over nearly $75 million (read: half of his assets) to his wife of ten years, it makes sense that he'd want to patch things up.
Kobe and Vanessa held hands as they strolled through the terminal at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday afternoon, and they weren't in the best mood when photogs snapped their photo. Maybe the NBA star is cranky because of the way the season has gone this year for the Lakers? While he signed a nearly $50 million 2-year extension contact 5 months ago, all the losses since then have clearly taken their toll on his mood...
LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are ending their 10 1/2-year marriage, according to The Insider. Vanessa filed papers in Orange County Friday.
"We ask that in the interest of our young children and in light of the upcoming holiday season, the public respect our privacy during this most difficult time," the couple told The Insider's Kevin Frazier.
The Bryants have already worked out the terms of their divorce with a mediator. They have two daughters -- Natalia, 8, and Giana, 5. The pair married in April 2001.

San Diego police are interviewing parishioners at St. Therese of Carmel Church following an altercation involving NBA player Kobe Bryant on Sunday.
Bryant reportedly thought a young man was taking photos of him and his wife on a cell phone during the service and confronted him.
The man later went to the hospital with a minor wrist sprain.
"We're attempting to interview all the [participants]," said a San Diego police spokesman.
The church is in the upscale Carmel Valley area of San Diego.
Bryant, friends and his wife reportedly left the church following the altercation. He returned the man's cell phone to him.
