Vanessa confirms this in a new interview.
Vanessa and Kobe Bryant Working Things Out?
Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa Bryant has confirmed reports that they are trying to work things out. In an interview with New York Magazine, when asked if their marriage is on the mend, she said, "Um, yes. We're working on things." She also talked about pushing Kobe to win. She said, "I love basketball. And I know what goes on behind the scenes, so I have a different perspective on things, but still, I do. I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can't win championships. If you're sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships, then winning a championship should happen every single year."
She also denied rumors that she has beef with Khloe Kardashian. She said, "Everything is false. Khloé was at my 29th birthday. I don't get involved in the drama. I've been with Kobe since I was 17, so I've seen plenty of players, and plenty of wives, come and go. It wouldn't benefit me whatsoever to have an issue with any of them, whether they were a girlfriend, or a wife, a person-of-a-month, or ... you know. And I think that's why the Lakers as an organization give me the access that I have, that other wives don't have."
She continued, "If you notice, I am the only one allowed in that tunnel. I don't like standing outside and giving him a kiss in front of all the cameras. So I stand in there to get away from them. But then the cameras end up following. And if the girls are there, sometimes, that's their kiss good night for Daddy, and when he comes home, they're asleep."
