09:36 AM ET 01.12 | Kobe and Vanessa Bryant are staying together. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar and his wife both announced they've called off their divorce Friday on social media. Shortly after Vanessa posted the news on Instagram, Kobe confirmed it on Facebook less than an hour before the Lakers hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder. "I am happy to say that Vanessa and I are moving on with our lives together as a family," Bryant wrote. "When the show ends and the music stops, the journey is made beautiful by having that someone to share it with. Thank you all for your support and prayers!" Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce in December 2011, seeking to end a marriage that began in April 2001 and survived a sexual assault accusation against the five-time NBA champion guard. The Bryants have two daughters, Natalia and Gianna.

sure this will sound mean, but.............I truly could care less about what these dudes lives are like off the court

Ding ding...we have a winner. Why is this a thread??? Who gives a crap about Kobe and his marriage? As much as I can't stand the guy, that's his own personal business and we have no need to be informed of it.

They don't care. Just want him to keep shooting too much and to keep losing.
