As soon as Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce from her rich but cheating baller husband Kobe Bryant, folks started wondering how much money she would get in the settlement and whether or not she “deserves” it. Well, the latter question might fuel debate forever, but while everyone else is talking about it Vanessa will be chillin’ in one of the many homes she was granted in the settlement and by the looks of things filling swimming pools with cash and splashing around in ‘em like Scrooge McDuck used to do.
Vanessa is walking away with $75 million, which we’re told represents close to half of their total assets, estimated at around $150 million.
TMZ previously reported several transfers of property earlier this year between Kobe and Vanessa. It turns out, based on the property settlement, Vanessa scored a clean sweep, snagging ALL THREE of the former couple’s mansions in the Newport Beach area.
Vanessa gets the estate the couple was living in, the estate her mom is living in, and she gets the new estate that had been under construction for 2 years and was just completed. We were told Kobe was moving into the new estate, but that’s not true. It’s Vanessa’s crib, lock stock and barrel.
I’m tickled at how this report makes it sound like Vanessa taking all three homes in Newport Beach means that Kobe will be living in a studio apartment in South Central making his meals on a hot plate — I’m sure he’ll be just fine with the $75 million that’s left over.
