Reconciliation rumors swirl after Kobe Bryant, estranged wife spotted kissing

Kobe Bryant and his estranged wife were spotted locking lips on Valentine's Day, sparking rumors of a reconciliation.

Vanessa Bryant, who filed divorce papers in December amid reports of the athlete's infidelity, sat among the crowd cheering on the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night, according to TMZ.

After the Lakers were victorious over the Atlanta Hawks, the NBA star met-up with Vanessa en route to the team's locker room and the two apparently shared a passionate kiss.

Sources told the celebrity website the pair are working toward a reconciliation, with their divorce not due to be finalized until June.

Previous reports estimated Vanessa would be awarded a $75 million divorce settlement in addition to the family's three Newport Beach mansions, should the pair move forward to end their marriage.

They would also likely share joint custody of their daughters, Natalia, nine, and five-year-old Gianna.

The Bryants married without a pre-nuptial agreement in 2001, when he was 21 and she was 18.
