Kobe Bryant’s Wife’s Step Dad Claims Ball Player Should Have Seen It Coming
Kobe Bryant, the world famous basketball player, is about to go through a nasty divorce with his wife. The reasons for the divorce include allegations of cheating. Vanessa Bryant’s ex step dad has come into the picture making some pretty wild claims.
One of the claims is that Vanessa has had this in mind all along, and Kobe should have known that in the case of a divorce he would get taken to the cleaners. He states that Vanessa learned how to be a gold-digger from her mother.
Stephan Laine, who is an inventory manager for a food company, was married to Vanessa’s mother from 1990 to 2003. He helped to raise Vanessa from a child into an adult. He says her mother told the girl that when she gets married it is a good idea to wait for at least ten years before getting divorced, because this way she will be able to get spousal support for life. The only way the rule stops applying is if she were to get remarried.
The ex-step dad claims he is currently paying 1,800$ a month to Vanessa’s mom, and with the windfall of cash they both are about to get, they definitely do not need it.
The thing is this, even if all of this were true, Kobe set himself up to be taken to the cleaners. We have seen how this kind of story plays out again and again. Rich athlete marries a woman who probably would not give him the time of day if he were an average Joe. After a while the women claims the husband was cheating on her, and then the guy gets destroyed in court and loses a lot of money.
If there is any lesson to be taken from this it is to protect your assets and do not marry those who you know are only in it for one reason. I am not implying that Vanessa does not love or care about Kobe. He did cheat on her years back and it was all in the news. She apparently forgave him and the couple moved on from there. But the point is, those who have high incomes should be extra careful with who they get involved with.
Kobe can expect to lose a lot of money in this divorce, and I am sure that in a short time women will begin coming out of the woodwork claiming to have been with the ball player.
