There are rumors that Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are going to divorce.
They are six years married now.
In November 1999, 21 year old Bryant met 17 year old Vanessa Laine while she was working as a background dancer on the Tha Eastsidaz music video “G’d Up”. Bryant was in the building working on his debut musical album, which was never released.
Reportedly Bryant’s parents had problems with him marrying so young, especially to a woman who was not African-American.
