Vanessa Bryant (Married to Kobe Bryant)
Vanessa Laine met Kobe Bryant in 1999, at a video shoot for Kobe’s first hip hop album (thankfully he stuck to basketball). According to Kobe, who was only 21 at the time, one of the background dancers caught his eye. After two years of dating, the young couple married in 2001. But things haven’t always been easy for the Bryants… In 2003, Kobe was accused of having an affair (that’s putting it nicely). Vanessa shocked the world when she decided to stay with Bryant. But then again, nothing says “I’m sorry” better than a $4 million diamond ring — which is exactly what Kobe bought Vanessa after the alleged incident. Their relationship appeared to be on the rocks again in 2011, when Vanessa filed for divorce, but the couple later announced they had reconciled their issues and called off the divorce.
