Kobe Bryant & Wife Vanessa Reveal They've Called Off Their Divorce

Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa have called off their divorce.

The couple, who met on a music-video shoot back in 1999, took to their social media accounts Friday to reveal that they're dropping their divorce proceedings in order to work through their marriage issues in pursuit of a happily ever after.

Vanessa posted to her Instagram: "We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled. Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together."

Meanwhile, Kobe took to his Facebook page with a more detailed note: "I am happy to say that Vanessa and I are moving on with our lives together as a family. When the show ends and the music stops, the journey is made beautiful by having that someone to share it with. Thank you all for your support and prayers! Much luv, Mamba out."

The couple's marriage was first on the rocks after Kobe admitted to infidelity back in 2003 when he was charged with sexually assaulting a woman in Colorado. The case was later dismissed when the 19-year-old accuser dropped the charges. And Kobe reportedly dropped $4 million on a make-up ring for Vanessa.

Later, in 2005, Bryant spent $50,000 on a recommitment ceremony yet by 2011 Vanessa finally reached her limit, filing for divorce in December of that year, citing "irreconcilable differences" and presumably bringing an end to their decade-long marriage. Happily, in this case, it was the divorce that failed, not the marriage.

The couple have two daughters together, 9-year-old Natalia Diamante and 6-year-old Gianna Maria-Onore.

I think Vanessa was too young to get married 17 or 18. Maybe they both had to find themselves and glad to hear they are keeping their family together
