Report: Kobe Bryant ‘Deeply Depressed’ Over Divorce Situation, Still Trying to Save Marriage

Kobe Bryant's wife, Vanessa, may have filed for divorce, but the NBA star reportedly still hasn't given up when it comes to trying to save his marriage.

TMZ reports that Kobe is "deeply depressed" about the current situation because he's concerned with how his two daughters, Natalia and Gianna, will handle growing up in two separate households. Natalia will turn 9 next month, while Gianna is 5.

Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce on Dec. 16, more than ten years after the couple got married. Vanessa stood by Kobe back in 2003 despite sexual assault charges — which were eventually dropped — being filed against him. Vanessa reportedly cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce. She reportedly grew tired of Kobe's unfaithfulness. No prenup was signed before the two wed.

According to TMZ, Kobe's family was unaware of his unfaithfulness, but they hope the couple can find a way to get along — even if it's just for their children's sake.
