The 100 Hottest WAGS in Sports History

51. Vanessa Bryant

Wifey Of: Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers (NBA)
Occupation: Dancer

It’s a story like Romeo and Juliet, really: NBA player meets 17-year-old high school student, couple gets engaged six months later, family refuses to attend wedding, the marriage doesn’t end well. So goes the ballad of Kobe and Vanessa Bryant, who met in 1999 when Vanessa was a backup dancer for Tha Eastsidaz. They went through quite the public hoopla when Kobe was accused of rape in 2003, an ordeal which Vanessa parlayed into one of the biggest and most expensive apology rings the world has ever seen (it’s worth a reported $4 million). All the rings in the world couldn’t stop Kobe from cheating, though, and amidst these repeated allegations of infidelity, the couple split in late 2011.
