Kobe, wife work on reconciliation?

Published Jun. 12, 2012 1:00 a.m. ET

Vanessa Bryant will not sign final documents for her divorce from NBA star Kobe because the pair is working on a full reconciliation, TMZ reported Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard and his ex-wife spend a lot of time together and have tried to work out the problems that caused Vanessa to file for divorce in December.

California law gives couples a six-month "waiting period" after divorce proceedings are initiated before it can be finalized.

Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce Dec. 16, citing irreconcilable differences — meaning that the waiting period expires Sunday and she would be free to divorce the basketball star Monday.


However, that is unlikely, the report said. There would be nothing to stop her from doing so at a later date, though.

Kobe, 33, married Vanessa in April 2001 in Dana Point, Calif., when he was 21 and she was 18. They have two daughters, Natalia and Gianna.
