Vanessa is on Instagram, and she was posting a significant message on Friday that she and Kobe are officially back together.

"We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled. Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together. Kobe & Vanessa," read the gram.

The Bryants were wed in 2000. Vanessa filed for divorce in 2011 but reconsidered.
