The apparent lack of a prenuptial agreement -- coupled with 10 years of marriage -- will likely significantly increase the size of Vanessa Bryant's divorce settlement with Kobe Bryant, legal experts said. Vanessa Bryant's mother told The Times several years ago that the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement when they tied the knot in 2001. If true, that would entitle Vanessa to half of their community property. Los Angeles Times

Christopher C. Melcher, a Woodland Hills-based family law attorney, said a prenup with the Lakers star would have limited Vanessa Bryant's rights for spousal support and some property rights. "It could have saved half of his fortune," he said. Los Angeles Times

Earlier this week, In Touch Weekly reported that Khloe Kardashian was involved in a bitter feud with fellow Lakers wife, Vanessa Bryant. The wife of Kobe Bryant, Vanessa is a fixture at NBA games throughout the year. And according to In Touch, she was less than enthusiastic when Khloe started showing up to watch husband Lamar Odom from the sidelines. Vanessa has recently stepped forward to set the record straight with Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier. "I have been a Laker wife for the past 10 years and I've never had an issue with anyone, especially any of the Laker wives," says Vanessa. "Celebrating your first NBA championship is an exciting time, I know because I've shared five along with my husband. My focus will remain spending quality time with my husband and children this summer. I look forward to supporting the Lakers on their quest for another championship next season." Examiner
