Some guys feel guilty and buy some roses or chocolates for their wives. Kobe Bryant reportedly bought his wife a $4 million purple diamond ring to try and make up for the sexual indiscretion that has gotten him in big trouble. I seriously doubt that Vanessa Bryant is going to stick it out with Kobe. Especially, since this whole incident is turning into an OJ-style media circus.


  1. She is so gone. She’s already spoken to a lawyer. She gets the kid, house, Bentley, and half his money. Kobe is so screwed on all counts.

  3. He’s a moron. He never would’ve been in this mess and we (the public) would still see him as Mr. GoodyGoodGod if he’d bought Kate… (Whoops, that would be just sooo unethical) that ring. Heck, he wouldn’t even have a need to blow Four Million, I’m sure a nice four hundred dollar ring off the Sears Jewelry Counter would’ve been enough to buy the girl’s silence. Kobe really isn’d doing himself any favors in the public’s eye and I’m sure that even Vanessa can see that 4 Mil would be better spent on other, more important things. Kobe should be known from this day forward as the ‘Lord of the Rings’. Thats really lame when you consider that people will now remember him more for that 1 purple diamond ring, then for the 3 championship rings (and counting) that he’s earned.

  5. If Hillary Clinton can stand by her man after “the Cigar Incident” became public knowledge, why wouldn’t Vanessa.

    Hillary stood by Bill for her political ambitions.
    Vanessa… Money?

  7. I believe that Kobe should face up to what he did. He should’ve stayed with Jocelyn Ebron in the first place…this wouldn’t have happened. He made his bed, so now he has to lay in it!

  10. Everyone needs to get off Kobe’s case. It is not anyones business. He faced up to what he did. He was a man about it. He is not guilty of rape. Let the verdict speak for its self. Yall all want to hate. it is not putting him down. If anything, it will just make him stronger. Who knows, maybe he will have another ring at the end of this season. It just might not cost him as much. LATTA

  11. wow what ever happend to inncoent untill proven guilty? Oh wait we never did have that huh? Give him a trial, because he either raped her, or he didn’t….

  12. stop talkin so much junk because none of this is true.Kobe didn’t rape noone this girl is just saying that because she wants some money.

  13. Kobe made stupid mistakes. Anyway, for all the lakers fans out there, the lakers will be beaten in the playoffs. Look at how the Mavs are playing. Look at how the Kings are playing, WITHOUT CHRIS WEBBER! And Garnett, Cassel, and Spreewell are too much for the lakers to handle. If they want a ring, trade kobe before he leaves for the Clippers, suns, or grizzlies in the summer. Otherwise, they will end up watching the kings, wolves go to the finals.

  14. kobe rocks he would get out of this mass

  15. kobe rocks he is going to get out of this mass whatever it takes if he goes to jail I will beat up the poeple who sent him.

    #15 by gavith — April 6, 2004 @ 4:25 am

  16. Kobe is guilty; he raped the girl and hopefully he will be raped in prison too. Maybe if he went to college he wouldn’t be such a moron. Vanessa will take his money and the ring. Being good at basketball got Kobe out of the hood, but it sure as well won’t get him out of Jail!

  17. All who are defending Kobe blindly are stupid fucks, I’m sorry. What 19-year-old girl consents to rough anal sex and leaves the act with non-vaginal blood and bruises on her body afterwards? Maybe I’m wrong and she is a blossoming sex-freak, but with that kind of physical evidence against Bryant you need to back the hell the victim and stop being so hell-bent on blaming her.

    Furthermore, don’t say “let the verdict speak for itself.” If you’re an American you know damn good and well that the system doesn’t work the same for those who are blessed with money and celebrity. Of course he will be proven innocent, but not necessarily rightly so.

    I was raped as a young girl. I think I have more knowledge on this subject than an 18-year-old male fuck sitting at his computer, wildly altering the facts to fit his fumbling schemata. I don’t know of many teenage girls that would put their entire identity on the line for the fame and money of it. It seriously messes up your life to come out and say you’ve been raped; I’m sure most girls know that you get this kind of “you’re a lying bitch” response that’ll stick to you for years, especially when it’s linked to a celebrity.

    God I am so wildly offended by your stupidity.

  18. Im truly sorry for what I did.
    Truth say Ive slept with many women and I really needed to get caught so I can truly validate and understand the magnitude of my actions.
    I will never watch xxx movies again and will remain chaste and celibate for life. I will not have sex with Vanessa or any other woman again. I hope my fans will have it in their hearts to forgive me.
    Respectfully yours,
    Kobe Bryant.

  19. Kobe is dumb arrogant bastard. Philly tried to tell the world what a lousy wannabe he was 2yrs ago. I don’t care what happens to him. What goes around comes around. No one is jealous of Kobe all the money he has he earned it. He is an excellent player. But an ignorant ass jerk off court. I hope they put his ass in jail. Hey Kobe I hope the 19 yr old sex was worth it Kobe cuz you screwed yourself. TOTALLY… all i have to say to is.. “DONT DROP THE SOAP” LOL..
