SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Kobe Bryant's wife, Vanessa, has filed for divorce from the Los Angeles Lakers star.
Vanessa Bryant filed papers Friday in Orange County Superior
Court in Santa Ana, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason
for the split.
A representative for the couple released a statement saying, "The Bryants have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a Judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012."
The couple have been married for 10½ years and have two daughters, ages 8 and 5.
In the statement, the Bryants "ask that in the interest of our young children and in light of the upcoming holiday season the public respect our privacy during this difficult time."
