So Ron Artest or World peace or whatever he calls himself these days is back to some of his old tricks yet again.

Ok…this divorce thing is getting WAAAYYYYY out of hand. After 10 years of marriage (WITHOUT A PRE NUP) Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa have announced they are filing for divorce. Now normally I would not even take the time to blog about something like this, BUT..KOBE BRYANT COULD STAND TO LOOSE UP TO $150,000,00 DOLLARS in the the divorce settlement. I mean seriously $150,000,000 DOLLARS is just unreal. Now in the past there have been many huge divorce settlements in the past but now this all getting to be ridiculous. 1st. This lady does need half of Kobe’s total net worth that it took him a lifetime of hard work, dedication, pain, and untold sacrifice to obtain. Kobe has been playing professional basketball for 16 years and has been injured countless times and has literally given his blood, sweat, and tears to the game which begs me top pose the question, WHAT THE HELL HAS SHE DONE? Now Im not praising Kobe like he is a great guy, because im sure he has his problems, after all they are mainly filing for divorce due to Kobe’s infidelity, but Vanessa’s life is in NO WAY, shape, or form difficult and worth half of Kobe’s life work. Now California State law does sate that married couples share half of all marital assets when a prenuptial agreement is not in place before a marriage. Now you could pose the argument, ” Oh she took care of the house, Raised the kids, cooking, cleaning, etc” and you would be wrong. Kobe im 1000% sure had maids, chef’s and nanny’s, so hard was Vanessa’s life really??? Look i say give her a few million so she could live comfortably for the rest of her life, and take care of her children, but half of this man’s entire net worth and life’s work? That’s crazy. Where is the justice people? so to end’s thing in the words of my man drake..” Bi**c you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym”
