Vanessa Bryant -- wife of NBA superstar Kobe Bryant -- has filed for divorce, according to a TMZ.com report. The couple has been married over 10 years.

Vanessa famously stood by Kobe after the latter was charged with sexual assault in 2003. Charges against Bryant were eventually dropped by Colorado prosecutors.

The Bryants have two young daughters, Natalia, 8, and Giana, 5. Neither party has issued a statement on the report.
