It's not easy to feel sorry for women who chase rappers and professional athletes. These types of women consistently fall into the category of gold diggers with no moral compass or self-esteem. They tend to pursue feebleminded rappers and athletes (or rapletes) who lace them with expensive gifts to boost their male egos, but who have no intentions of ever being faithful to their trophies. In other words, these couples deserve each other.
Not surprisingly, LA Lakers star Kobe Bean Bryant has been served with divorce papers by Vanessa Bryant, his wife of 10½ years. According to celebrity gossip blog TMZ.com, Vanessa caught Kobe cheating with "multiple women" over the years ... but his latest affair was the straw that broke the camel's back.
Kobe, 33, was charged with sexually assaulting a Colorado resort hotel clerk in 2003. But that case was settled out of court after Kobe admitted that he could see how she might have thought he was raping her.
Vanessa filed for divorce on Dec. 1, and Kobe filed his response on Dec. 7. She is seeking spousal support and joint custody of their two daughters, 5 and 8. Though there is no prenup, the two sides have amicably agreed to a financial settlement. Vanessa, 29, gets to keep their Newport Coast mansion, that $4 million repentance ring that Kobe gave her in 2001, and several luxury automobiles.
Months after denying divorce rumors, former NFL great Deion Sanders, 44, and his wife Pilar, 43, are ending their rocky marriage.
Deieon told TMZ, "Pilar and I have decided to end our marriage and move on to the next phase of our individual lives with mutual respect. We are friends and our top priority has and will continue to be the well-being of our children."
He added, "We arrived at this decision prayerfully and carefully in order to be able to pursue what is in both of our best personal interests."
