Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, has been with the famous athlete since 2002. And while Kobe’s face is plastered on countless television screens and magazine covers, Vanessa rarely gives interviews. So, what is there to know about her? Here’s the untold truth of Kobe Bryant’s wife.
As a senior at Marina High School, news that Vanessa Bryant was dating one of the L.A. Lakers’ star players sent shockwaves through the campus. According to the Los Angeles Times, a television helicopter was seen flying over the school in an attempt to capture images of the then-high school student and her A-list beau.
Her grandfather, Robert Laine, told the newspaper that Vanessa skipped out on her prom and had to finish her education through homeschooling, quote, “because of the notoriety.”
In a quest to gather up more information on the brunette teen who had captured Kobe’s heart, the Times even interviewed some of her classmates, who said the buzz around campus was that Kobe was sending flowers and other gifts to one of their classmates.
Some chatter from harmless teens was nothing. Once Vanessa and Kobe decided to get married, that’s when their lives really got flipped upside down.
