Kobe Bryant will reportedly have to fork over at least half of his assets — totaling $75 million — to his soon-to-be ex-wife Vanessa Bryant. Turns out their decision to not get a prenuptial agreement could take a serious toll on his bank account. USA Today reports:
Kobe Bryant’s divorce – and lack of a prenuptial agreement – could cost him as much as $75 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Christopher C. Melcher, a Los Angeles-area family law attorney, told the newspaper that a prenup could have limited the rights for spousal support and some property rights for his soon-to-be ex-wife Vanessa.
“It could have saved half of his fortune,” Melcher told the Times.
Bryant’s net worth has been estimated by some to be as much as $150million. The Times was told several years ago by Vanessa’s mother that the couple didn’t sign a prenup before marrying in 2001, which entitles her to half of all community property.
