On Friday, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant released a joint statement or “textogram” saying they have reconciled and are looking forward to spending their future together. The textogram reads: “We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled. Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together. Kobe & Vanessa.” The message was posted under Vanessa’s Instagram account.
Vanessa has been frequently using Instagram — posting images of she and her daughters, images of herself cooking, and commenting about fan’s questions. She recently slammed fans of Drake for quoting the rapper’s famous lyrics: “She wasn’t with you shooting in the gym,” in response to reports that Kobe would have to award Vanessa with half of his assets following a divorce.
“I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life,” Vanessa commented. “I really wish people would stop THINK and then realize that they are being sucked into someone’s clear intention to monetize and gain attention off of our family’s heartache. This is real life. I hold down our home life so my husband can focus on his career. It’s a partnership. Since my husband isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.”
Drake later clarified the purpose of his lyrics publicly. “That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all. I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else.“
