About 8 years after Vanessa stood by her man when he admitted his infidelity..Mrs. Bryant has had enough.
Kobe can't buy another ring to get out of this one!
Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Vanessa decided to end the marriage because she believes Kobe has been unfaithful ... again.
As one source puts it, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough," adding, "This one is the straw that broke the camel's back."
And our sources say ... Kobe "desperately" wants to win Vanessa back and will do "whatever it takes" to save their 10 1/2 year marriage.
According to the legal docs, Vanessa is asking for joint custody of their 2 daughters -- 8-year-old Natalia and 5-year-old Gianna -- but Vanessa is asking that Kobe get visitation rights, which means she wants the kids in her care most of the time.
We've learned the couple has NO PRENUP, so 29-year-old Vanessa is entitled to half of the empire Kobe built over the last decade.
She's also requesting spousal support ... which is typical in divorce cases. Kobe, who filed his response to the divorce minutes after Vanessa filed her petition, says he will pay her spousal support.
Good for Vanessa, putting her foot down and no longer dealing with The Black Mamba's cheating ways!
I used to hate on Vanessa because of the rumors of her crazy ass asking that NO ladies be in Kobe's presence...and used to call her a wannabe Kim Kardashian.....but big ups to her!
Hang in there Vanessa!
