Shirtless Kobe Bryant Olympic pic causes scandal

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

Recently leaked photos of a shirtless Kobe Bryant have caused something of a stir and allegedly sparked tensions in his tumultuous relationship with his wife Vanessa. The couple was expected to divorce earlier this year but then reconciled.

The photo, which was taken at an after-party in Barcelona, inspired gossip that Kobe was once again struggling to remain faithful to his wife. The Huffington Post reports:
