Kobe Bryant’s Wife Files For Divorce
TMZ has reported Kobe and Vanessa Bryant are getting a divorce and the couple lacks a prenuptial agreement
According to a post on TMZ Vanessa decided to end the marriage because she believes Kobe has been unfaithful again. The Associated Press reported, the Bryants released a joint statement saying they “have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012.”
It is likely that there will be somethings to argue about as, according to TMZ, the couple has no prenuptial agreement. The division of assets will be a lengthy process. The couple seek joint custody of their children, ages 5 and 8.
Although it is too soon to tell, at first blush it appears that the couple will not engage in the mud slinging that has characterized the Kim Kardashian Kris Humphries divorce.
The content of a prenuptial agreement can vary, but usually includes provisions for division of property and spousal support in the event of a dissolution of the marriage.
Prenups are most common when one or both parties bring substantial assets to the relationship as is the case with Kim Kardashian. Prenups concern what property remains the separate property of the individuals once they get married.
