Kobe Bryant’s soon-to-be ex-wife Vanessa could get up to half of his net worth due to their lack of a prenup. And though we’d like to believe that (poor) decision was made because of true love, it could have been a calculated move from Vanessa, long in the making.
Vanessa’s ex-stepfather Stephen Laine claims she learned her “wallet-raiding” ways from her mother, who he was married to from 1990-2003. He told TMZ:
“Her mother taught her well to wait for the ten-year mark [before divorcing]. In California … it’s considered a long-term marriage and then she gets paid for life or until she remarries … just like her mother is doing to me. I have to pay her mom $1,800 every month and clearly they don’t need it. I have a six-year-old daughter and that money could be used toward her college fund or something … you’d think she’d care … but no, she’s spiteful.”
