It appears to me that Kobe like millions of men before him might have taken Vanessa a little bit for granted. I am pretty sure that Vanessa knew he was cheating, but when he started to get reckless with it that is when it became a problem.
No matter when Vanessa left Kobe she was going to get paid. Five year, 10 years or 15 years she wasn’t going to have to worry about getting a job at Starbucks.
Maybe Kobe has realized the error of his ways, either way TMZ thinks he wants her back.
Kobe Bryant has NOT given up on saving his marriage … and sources close to the family tell us his two daughters are playing a major role in his effort to reconcile … TMZ has learned.
We’re told Kobe is “deeply depressed” over the situation — and is very concerned about how his daughters will handle growing up in two separate households.
Now the question begs does Kobe really want to get back because of the kids or because he doesn’t want to pay out the $75 million?
He could always make the money back by marrying Kim Kardashian.
