In a surprising and welcome twist to the road that most celebrity break-ups travel, LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa have formally called off their divorce, and are (hopefully) on the road to marital recovery.
Both of the Bryants took to the social medisaphere over the weekend to announce the happy news — Kobe via Facebook, and Vanessa via Instagram. The apparent reconciliation closes the books on a divorce that Vanessa filed in December, 2011.
Unfortunately, none of this good news relates to Kobe’s Lakers, who sit mired out of the playoff picture in the NBA’s Western Conference.
Though, if people can announce life-changing divorce news through social media, anything can happen — which doesn’t entirely rule out the possibility that Vanessa will don a jersey and crack the starting line-up.
