According to TMZ, Newport Coast resident Vanessa Bryant, 29-year-old wife of Lakers star Kobe Bryant, has filed for divorce in an Orange County court.

The reason behind the divorce? More accusations that Kobe, 33, has been unfaithful.

The gossip site quotes a source, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough."

Vanessa is asking for joint custody of the couple's two young daughters (eight-year-old Natalia and five-year-old Gianna). Oh, and also?


The divorce papers were signed by Vanessa on December 1, while Kobe signed his response on December 7.

Let's see how this one pans out in comparison to Michael Jordan's 2001 $168 million divorce settlement.
