Then photos were released of a shirtless Bryant at a Barcelona bar, and needless to say, Vanessa wasn't happy.
Those who are curious as to the dynamics of the Bryants' notoriously rocky relationship may receive some clarity in an upcoming New York Magazine interview with Vanessa.
According to Nicki Jhabvala of Sports on Earth, who obtained a quote from the interview, Vanessa believes that winning it all is of the utmost importance in her relationships.
"I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can't win championships." Vanessa said. "If you're sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships, then winning a championship should happen every single year."
A little picky, maybe, but she's definitely got the right man. Five NBA championships and two Olympic gold medals should help Kobe's cause.
