Kobe & Vanessa Bryant call off their divorce


Maybe social media can have the reverse effect on some couples. A little over a year after filing for divorce, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant are officially back together. The couple released a statement saying they are no longer moving forward with the filing and have reconciled.

Vanessa recently made her Instagram page public and it of course included tons of photos of the couple. Kobe launched his Twitter page where he referred to Vanessa as his “shorty rock,” public declarations of love is the official stamp of “we’re back” right?

Kobe also released a brief statement via his FaceBook page but not Twitter:

I am happy to say that Vanessa and I are moving on with our lives together as a family. When the show ends and the music stops, the journey is made beautiful by having that someone to share it with. Thank you all for your support and prayers! Much luv, Mamba out

The couple have been married almost 12 years.


Congratulations to the couple.

    tmz is saying kobe may have signed a postnup to give vanessa more money??? How is this possible if they didnt have a prenup…she was getting half anyway right Jill?? Can you help me out, I dont understand!

    They said they aren’t certain of that. But that’s the point of a postnup. It happens after a couple is married. Usually in cases with no prenup. It’s absolutely possible. I’d imagine Vanessa enjoys the title of Mrs. Kobe Bryant more than the half she’d get in a divorce.

  • Meg

    so you think kobe made her sign a postnup saying that she wont be taking half his money if they divorce in the future??

  • StilettoJill

    I have no idea.
