Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Divorce Off?

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant, the former (?) Newport Coast couple with the most-est, are apparently calling off the divorce.

Having increasingly been spotted together in public in the six months since his wife of 11 years filed for divorce, Black Mamba has apparently convinced the former Vanessa Laine of Huntington Beach to give it another go.

Vanessa filed for divorce in Orange County Superior Court in December, alleging the 33-year-old NBA superstar has repeatedly been unfaithful.
