‘omg! Insider’ Exclusive: Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Are Reconciling

OMG Relationships
January 11, 2013

A year after they first split, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant have decided to work things out.

“We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled,” the Los Angeles Lakers star and his wife of nearly 12 years tell “omg! Insider’s” Kevin Frazier in a statement. “Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together.”

Kobe, 34, and Vanessa, 30 – who first got together when she was in high school – even spent New Year’s Eve together and were spotted arm in arm as they exited BOA Steakhouse on the Sunset Strip.

After Vanessa filed for divorce in December 2011, Kobe vowed to do “whatever it takes” to win back his wife, the mother of his two daughters, Natalia, 10, and Gianna, 6. Two months later on Valentine’s Day, they were snapped kissing after the Lakers beat the Atlanta Hawks, although they were reportedly still living in separate homes.

The signs of reconciliation kept up throughout 2012. Back last June, TMZ reported that Vanessa was hesitating over signing final divorce documents.

We can only assume this Valentine’s Day will be even more special for Kobe and Vanessa!
