Kobe Bryant wife - Vanessa Bryant

Lakers' legend Kobe Bryant met wife Vanessa while she was working as a background dancer on the Tha Eastsidaz music video "G'd Up". The two began dating soon after and got engaged just six months later in May 2000. They got married in April 2001 (without signing a prenup) and have been together ever since. Reportedly Kobe Bryant's parents had problems with him marrying so young, especially to a woman who was not African-American. The couple have been together through a lot of ups and downs in their relationship including sexual assault allegations and were even on the verge of divorce early in their marriage. The assault case was dropped by prosecutors after the accuser decided not to testify at the trial. Afterward, Bryant agreed to apologize to her for the incident, including an apology to the general public.
