Things on the court may not be going well for Kobe Bryant, but at least his personal life just got better. This couple has had a rocky past since 2003 when Kobe admitted to cheating on Vanessa with a 19-year-old girl who claimed that it was not consensual. Kobe escaped those charges almost as well as he escapes defenders on the court, except it cost him $4 million. Remember that ring he bought Vanessa? Well I certainly do and that is how you apologize to a woman scorned!
Things seemed to be going well for the couple up until last year when Vanessa filed for divorce citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. Apparently Kobe just couldn’t stay faithful. However, that was a year ago and things have changed severely. The Lakers are awful and Kobe is no longer single. The couple took to Instagram and announced their reconciliation. “We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled. Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together.” Great news for Kobe, but the Lakers still won’t make the playoffs. You just can’t win them all.
It might be the holiday season, but Kyrie Irivng just gave his girlfriend the worst possible gift. Irving posted a picture on his Instagram of him with two girls on his lap. After getting a ton of backlash for it, Irving removed the picture, but the damage was already done. Kyrie sent out multiple tweets to explain the picture. He even tried to say that someone else was responsible for making the picture public. Hmmm… if that is the case maybe Kyrie should reconsider those in his inner circle.
One person who didn’t seem too upset, Kyrie’s girlfriend, Natalia Garibotto. She was away on vacation while all this was happening, but instead of making a scene on Twitter, she actually took the high road. This is what she had to say everyone talking about the story, “For everyone tweeting at me, nothing is up. Just a couple hoes who need attention and clearly in desire for more Ig and tweeter followers. ✌” Maybe it is not as bad as it seems. Who knows.
