Report: Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Will Not Divorce

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Kobe Bryant may not be getting divorced after all.

According to TMZ, the L.A. Lakers star and his wife of 13 years, Vanessa Bryant, are working on a reconciliation that’s stopping her from signing the divorce papers she filed in December. Under California law, she could end the marriage as early as Monday, but TMZ claims she won’t.

Reps for Bryant did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.

The couple have been spotted looking less than contentious since Vanessa Bryant’s divorce filing. They shared a post-game kiss on Valentine’s Day after the Lakers defeated the Atlanta Hawks.

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Kobe and Vanessa Bryant are working on a reconciliation, according to

Vanessa filed for divorce in December, and has already reached a $75 million settlement deal that gives her the couple's three estates in Newport Beach, Calif., but the couple didn't look like they had irreconcilable differences on Valentine's Day.

Vanessa was cheering and smiling in the stands at an L.A. Lakers home game against the Atlanta Hawks on Valentine's Day, and Kobe and she were later caught kissing in the players' tunnel that leads to the locker rooms.

Sources told TMZ back in December that no one should be surprised if Vanessa went back to Kobe. Their divorce -- if it does go forward -- wouldn't become final until mid-June.

Vanessa Bryant the Latest Basketball Wife to Bounce

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Vanessa Bryant is the latest basketball wife to call it quits.

The wife of Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant filed for divorce Friday, citing ”irreconcilable differences” after 10 years of marriage. She stood by his side when a Colorado hotel concierge claimed he had raped her in 2003 (the case was later dismissed, but not before Bryant admitted that he had “consensual sex” with the woman). Vanessa Bryant also remained quiet despite reports that Bryant had multiple other extra-marital affairs.

The couple is seeking joint custody of their daughters, Natalia, 8, and Gianna, 5. The split is expected to cost the sports pro plenty: they have no prenuptial agreement, according to the Los Angeles Times.
