Kobe Bryant’s death put his family in the spotlight for the last few days. The basketball star and his daughter, Gianna, and seven other passengers were killed in a helicopter crash last January 26, in Calabasas, California. So what exactly do you know about this couple aside from being extremely famous, that is? Below you’ll find some interesting facts about Kobe and Vanessa you’ve probably haven’t known before.

They married at a young age

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant were together for 20 years. They first met in 2000 and then tied the knot in 2001. He was only 22 while Vanessa was just 18. They were too young to get married based on the standards of many people but that didn’t stop them to exchange wedding vows and start a family of their own.

Their marriage caused family tension

The couple’s marriage was scrutinized by the media and above all, Kobe’s family disapproved of their marriage in the first place. His family didn’t attend their wedding and when his high school retired his number, his wife and his parents didn’t seat together during the ceremony. Kobe admitted that his dad was uncomfortable about him getting married to a Latin instead of somebody who is as African American. Throughout their marriage, there had been tension with his family although his dad adored his grandchildren.

They almost got divorced

Vanessa filed for divorce in December 2011 due to “irreconcilable differences” following cases of infidelity on Kobe’s side. He admitted to cheating and was even accused of sexual assault. The charges against him were dropped but he still admitted to repeatedly being unfaithful to his wife. She didn’t sign any prenup but sought to have shared custody of their children, including half of the basketball star’s assets.

However, the couple called off the divorce proceedings in 2013. They turned to social media to announce that they have reconciled and their divorce will be dismissed. They said they are looking forward to their future together and thanked everyone for their support and prayers.

They agreed never to fly on a helicopter together

The couple made an agreement to never fly on a helicopter together though they never really said the reason behind their deal. Kobe is known to ride in helicopters in order to avoid traffic. According to him, he started flying in helicopters when he was playing for the Lakers. He wanted to spend quality time with his family and being stuck in traffic prevented him from being with them.

They wanted to have a son

The couple is blessed with four beautiful daughters. However, they expressed their desire to have a son. They welcomed their latest addition to the family last year and were hoping they could have a baby boy soon. Kobe said Vanessa wanted one though he loved having girls.
