Regardless of how basketball star Kobe Bryant is currently playing for the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center, his soon-to-be ex-wife Vanessa Bryant is scoring big herself. While dividing their assets for their ongoing divorce, she is reportedly receiving all three of their mansions! So how much is all that real estate worth? Read on for the final number, after the jump!
The Los Angeles Times recently obtained the couple’s property records. It is shown that their three mansions have been transferred to Vanessa’s sole ownership. Altogether, the homes are valued at a whopping $18.8 million!
For now, the divorce is proceeding peacefully. A representative of Kobe Bryant said in a prepared statement last December:
The Bryants have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012.
Wife Vanessa Bryant first filed for divorce back in December 2011 and cited “irreconcilable differences” for the cause of their divorce. The two were wed in 2001 and have two daughters, ages 8 and 5. The couple reportedly does not have a prenuptial agreement, and under California law, Vanessa could eventually receive up to half of the NBA all-star’s estimated $150 million fortune!
Do you think Vanessa Bryant will end up scoring half of Kobe Bryant’s basketball fortune? Or will he start playing hardball and fight for his money?
