The wife of Lakers star Kobe Bryant filed for divorce Friday afternoon, TMZ reported.
Vanessa Bryant, 29, cited “irreconcilable differences” in court documents posted by the entertainment site.
The sustainability of the Bryants’ relationship first came into question in 2003, when Kobe Bryant was accused of sexually assaulting a Colorado woman.
Bryant denied any assault but the all-star admitted to cheating on his wife and issued a public apology.
“You’re my backbone,” Bryant said at the time. “I’m so sorry I put you through this and having to put our family through this.”
The couple has two daughters – 8 and 5 years old.
