According to Vanessa Bryant’s step-father, Stephen Laine, she got her golddigging ways from her mother.
According to TMZ, Laine was married to Vanessa’s mother from 1990 to 2003 and helped raise her from a child into adulthood.
Laine states, “Her mother taught her well to wait for the ten-year mark [before divorcing].” He explains, “In California … it’s considered a long-term marriage and then she gets paid for life or until she remarries … just like her mother is doing to me.” Laine continues, “I have to pay her mom $1,800 every month and clearly they don’t need it.”
Well, I have to say if Kobe wasn’t smart enough to have this “random” chick not sign a pre-nup then that’s on him. Back in 2003, after the rape scandal, he should’ve told her to sign a pre-nup so he knows it’s real (
especially when you know you’re a cheater)! Not having her sign one because you’re “deeply in love” was not a smart business move. I seriously doubt that she will get remarried anytime soon…what a sucka.
I wonder how the conversation went down when Kobe told his mother Vanessa was going to be his wife? Answers we will NEVER know 😀
