Kobe and Vanessa: Back Together?
If you read this blog with any regularity, you know by now that I am a die-hard Lakers fan. In a rough season like the one we’ve had, there’s a need for some good news – any good news. It seems that we may have found it at last.
As we all know, Kobe Bryant cheated on his wife several times and almost went to jail for it several years ago. His wife, Vanessa, remained by his side until earlier this season, when she decided she just couldn’t take it anymore. While Kobe is noted for his laser-like focus, it is widely known that when professional athletes lose a handle on their personal lives, it affects their performances.
Shout out to Tiger Woods.
So, while Kobe had an OK season (and nearly won a scoring title), something was a little off. It’s fairly logical to speculate that a good bit of it has had to do with the deteriorating relationship between he and his wife – particularly the divorce judgement which was quite skewed in the favor of Bryant’s better half (and lead Drake to famously declare “B**ch, you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym!”).
There seems to be hope for the couple yet, as Vanessa reportedly will not sign the divorce papers. Apparently, she wants to work on reconciling the relationship, and that reconciliation seems to be well underway, with the two sharing a passionate kiss on Valentine’s Day and going out together on several occasions.
This may be some of the best news the Lakers get all offseason, and we hope it works out for the two of them. Seriously, at this point, he knows exactly how much he stands to lose as the court ruling has already been made. If he can’t work it out this time, he may never see another ring – championship or otherwise.
