Vanessa Bryant was spotted kissing ex Kobe Bryant on Valentine's Day. A reconciliation is reportedly in the works, after years of cheating allegations and a sexual harassment suit.
TMZ reported that Vanessa was seen kissing Kobe at the Lakers' Valentine's Day game against the Atlanta Hawks. The two shared an intimate moment in the tunnel on the way to the locker room, which quick-handed paparazzi caught photos of. Vanessa was decked out in a red dress, red pumps and red lipstick for the occasion.
Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce form her husband after over ten years of marriage. The couple has had a tumultuous time since they wed in 2001. Vanessa cited irreconcilable differences as her reason for leaving the Laker. TMZ is reporting that the real reason behind the split is, once again, his extramarital affairs. Kobe's infamous infidelity was revealed in 2003 when he was charged with the sexual assault of a Colorado woman.
She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough, a source told TMZ at the time, adding, This one is the straw that broke the camel's back. There was no prenuptial agreement and Vanessa got to keep all three of the couple's Newport Beach estates.
By the looks of it, there may be a reconciliation in the works. According to TMZ, sources said that it would not be a surprise if Vanessa gets back with Kobe. The two have submitted all the necessary documents for their divorce, although it does not become final until mid-June. There is apparently still time to withdraw.
However, Vanessa Bryant is not the only woman who has stood by her man. Here are other celebrity wives who stayed with their cheating husbands.
