Tired of his infidelities, Vanessa Bryant, wife of Basketball Star Kobe Bryant, has filed for the dissolution of marriage in California after 10 years of marriage.

In a comunity property state, Vanessa is very likely to be entitled to 50% of Kobe's annual earnings for the last decade. The LA Lakers star is expected to earn in excess of $25 million in 2011. THe couple never filed a pre-nuptial agreement.

Vanessa is being represented by Laura Wasser, who recently represented Kim Kardashian in her divorce from athlete Kris Humphries.

According to the petition, Vanessa is requesting spousal maintenance and joint custody of the couple's two young daughters who are 5 and 8.

In 2003, Kobe was charged with sexual assault charges in Colorado, but Vanessa stood by him during the ordeal. The case was dismissed, but Bryant admitted to having sex with his 20-year-old accuser.
