Kobe and Vanessa Bryant to Mediate Divorce

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant will mediate their divorce. Vanessa Bryant filed a divorce petition in Orange County Superior Court last week, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, Vanessa Bryant’s mother previously told a Times reporter. If true, she would be entitled to half of their community property.
Some estimates put Kobe Bryant’s net worth at $150 million. Legal experts said Vanessa Bryant will probably receive at least $75 million, in addition to ongoing spousal and child support. However, because the mediation will be confidential, details of the divorce settlement between the Bryants may never be publicly known.
