Kobe Bryant divorce: Couple will share custody of 2 daughters
In the document, Vanessa Bryant cited "irreconcilable differences" in seeking a divorce from the Lakers star. The document also said the couple will share both physical and legal custody of their daughters, Natalia, 8, and Giana, 5.
While Vanessa Bryant filed the papers Friday stating her intentions to end her 10-year marriage to the Lakers star, the documents were signed earlier this month.
In a statement released by their publicist, the couple said a final judgment for the marriage will be filed with the Orange County court in 2012.
