Posted Friday December 16, 2011 9:31 PM GMT

With the NBA preseason just underway after a lengthy league lockout, Kobe Bryant's season has had an eventful beginning after his wife Vanessa filed for divorce.

The Los Angeles Lakers All-Star is on the way to being a single man, as TMZ reports that his wife of 10+ years is ending their marriage.

The split coming after Vanessa stuck by her man's side through an alleged sexual assault by Kobe in 1993 during a visit to Colorado, TMZ's source tells, "She's been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough," adding, "This one is the straw that broke the camel's back."

The report adds that Mrs. Bryant submitted the papers on Friday (December 16) while seeking joint custody of their two daughters, 8-year-old Natalia and 5-year-old Gianna, including primary care with her basketball star ex permitted visitation.
