Vanessa Bryant's ex step-dad, Stephen Laine, is calling the former Mrs. Kobe Bryant a gold-digger. Vanessa filed for divorce rom NBA superstar Kobe Bryant last week, and now her Mom's ex-husband says that the whole thing is a calculated attempt to nab Kobe's money.
"Her mother taught her well to wait for the ten-year mark [before divorcing]," he says. "In California … it’s considered a long term marriage and then she gets paid for life or until she remarries … just like her mother is doing to me. I have to pay her mom $1,800 every month and clearly they don’t need it. I have a six-year-old daughter and that money could be used toward her college fund or something … you’d think she’d care … but no, she’s spiteful.”
Stephen cheated on Vanessa's mother shortly after Kobe and 'Nessa got hitched.
