Remember that nice a$$ crib that Kobe Bryant invited reporters into for that one TV interview? Well, he doesn’t live there anymore. Kobe moved out of his Newport Coast home earlier this month after wife Vanessa filed for divorce.
According to TMZ reports:
Kobe Bryant has already moved out of his MASSIVE Newport Coast mansion … permanently — because TMZ has learned Vanessa gets the estate in the couple’s divorce.
Kobe purchased the sprawling Orange County property back in 2001.
As part of the divorce settlement, Kobe agreed to give up the property. The couple had NO prenup … which means Vanessa is entitled to half of EVERY DOLLAR Kobe made since they were married ten years ago.
It’s unclear where Kobe is living at the moment.
Nice house Vanessa!
And in other Bryant divorce related news, reports have emerged saying Kobe isn’t sitting on as many millions as most folks believed. TMZ is also reporting that :
contrary to news reports about Kobe Bryant’s wealth — the BBaller’s net worth is approximately $150 million, according to sources in a direct position to know.
Sources intimately familiar with the situation tell us … the $150 mil accounts for real estate holdings, stock, cash and other assets.
The figure is far less than news reports which set Kobe’s fortune north of $400 million. But the $150 mil figure is the accurate one.
TMZ broke the divorce story and the fact that Kobe and Vanessa DO NOT HAVE A PRENUP. Given that the marriage has lasted more than a decade and the pre-marriage assets are commingled with what was accumulated during the marriage, the assets are distributed based on the community property laws of California — which means a 50/50 split.
Kobe and Vanessa have already struck a financial settlement, but she was in a good position to get half of the pie.
There’s a big difference between $200 million and $75 million but Vanessa should be able to buy more than enough frilly dresses for Natalia and Giana to last for awhile with that gwap!
