Though it was only lasted a decade, it seems like Kobe and Vanessa went through all the highs and lows of marriages lasting a quarter century or more. It all began when Kobe met Vanessa—who was a 17 at the time—on the set of Tha Eastsidaz music video "G'd Up" in 1999. By 2001 they were married despite disapproval from Kobe's parents. She was by his side during the five championships and had his back during the Eagle County Colorado scandal. Though that isn't too hard when someone puts a rock on your finger that's the size of a ring pop.
Anyway, considering the fact that several years passed since the scandal, Kobe had seemingly restored his public image, and they had two kids together, it came as a surprise when Vanessa filed for divorce in December 2011. No prenup and Kobe's history of infidelity meant the one-time video girl would cake up off of Kobe's estimated $150M in a major way. But with news of their recent reconciliation, was it true love that brought them back together or the fear of potentially losing all that dough? M.O.B., fam. M.O.B.
