So How Much Money Will Vanessa Bryant Receive In The Divorce Settlement?

The calculations are complete:

Vanessa Bryant will probably receive a minimum of $75 million, in addition to spousal and child support, from a divorce settlement with her husband of ten years, Los Angeles Lakers star, Kobe Bryant, the L.A. Times reports.

According to The Times, Vanessa’s mother revealed years ago that the couple does not have a prenuptial agreement. Kobe’s net worth has been estimated between 150-200 million dollars.

California law stipulates that a spouse is entitled to “maintain her standard of living” post-divorce, attorney Dmitry Gorin told The Times.

Though the couple said in a statement last Friday that they had "resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately,” Vanessa’s step-father, Stephen Laine, told TMZ that the daughter he raised from a small child is “gold-digger just like her mother.” 

“Her mother taught her well to wait for the ten-year mark [before divorcing], “said Laine. “In California … it’s considered a long term marriage and then she gets paid for life or until she remarries … just like her mother is doing to me. I have to pay her mom $1,800 every month and clearly they don’t need it.”

With over half of his fortune on the line, it will be interesting to see how long Kobe and Vanessa’s divorce remains “private and amicable.”
