It seems that after a long year mired by the threat of divorce, the worst is over for Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa.
After Kobe's wife filed for divorce last winter, there was a six month waiting period in California courts to decide whether. Six months have passed, and the divorce has not been finalized. It appears it could mean good things, as TMZ reports.
We've learned Kobe and Vanessa are trying to work out the issues that caused her to file for divorce back in December. They spend a lot of time together but he has not officially moved back in with her.
Divorce is always tough, so if the two of them have managed to work out their issues, that's hopefully a positive step forward, and they can work to move past the issues that caused the divorce to occur in the first place.
Of course, if you're more cynical about love and emotions, there is one interesting tidbit about the arrangement.
One more thing. If Kobe and Vanessa end up living together ... it will be in one of her 3 mansions, because he signed over all the deeds to her while they were working out divorce details.
So looks like Vanessa might not just get his man back, but might get additional property out of the arrangement. Not bad at all!
