Tiger Woods 100 Million Divorce
December 19, 2011 by staff
Tiger Woods 100 Million Divorce, The old adage hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, is about to take on new meaning in the life of basketball superstar Kobe Bryant. According to the court documents filed, Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant is filing for divorce, while requesting spousal support and joint custody of the couple’s two daughters, 8-year-old Natalia and 5-year-old Giana. Rumor has it that she is leaving due to alleged “infidelity” on the part of her husband. So for all of you women out there who watch Basketball Wives, or think that these women have the “glamorous life”, think again.
Being married to a pro athlete can look like a dream come true — a life filled with expensive cars, world class vacations, designer clothing and luxurious mansions. But there is a darker side, mostly unspoken until the divorce papers are filed.
In Vanessa Bryant’s case we all know the deal, because we watched her endure a public criminal trial in 2002 when her husband was accused of raping a 19-year-old white woman. She stood by his side, but at what cost? Yes, Vanessa is a real life basketball wife and we likely have no clue what she has endured for the past 10 years as the quiet and loyal wife to the Laker’s star player.
One of my high school friends and track competitors, Timi Crawford, married ex-NBa player Pervis Ellison and one of my law school classmates, Crystal McCrary, married ex-NBA player Greg Anthony, and I imagine both of them could tell us stories (Crystal McCrary actually did in her book Homecourt Advantage) about life in the NBA.
According to media reports that surfaced last week Vanessa Bryant has had enough of her husband’s cheating ways and has finally filed for divorce. The bad new for Kobe is that they have no prenup agreement, which is fairly standard in the lives of celebrities and sports figures. Given the high profile nature of this divorce, I thought I’d put my lawyer hat on and give you some insights into what you can expect to see as the Bryant’s end their 10 year marriage.
