Vanessa Bryant has filed for divorce from Kobe, citing irreconcilable differences after ten years of marriage.

Vanessa stuck around with Kobe after he was accused of sexual assault in 2003 in Colorado but she eventually got sick of his cheating ways, sources told TMZ. Vanessa is asking for custody and spousal support — which is typical — but the couple never had a prenup.

It sounds like the couple is doing their best to keep all the details hush-hush: they filed their papers late on a Friday afternoon in Orange County Superior Court and didn't really include any details in the filing, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Their publicist issued a statement asking everyone to leave them the hell alone think of the children: "The Bryants have resolved all issues incident to their divorce privately with the assistance of counsel and a Judgment dissolving their marital status will be entered in 2012. We ask that in the interest of our young children and in light of the upcoming holiday season the public respect our privacy during this most difficult time."
