 LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kobe and Vanessa Bryant are staying together.
The Los Angeles Lakers superstar and his wife both announced they've called off their divorce Friday on social media.
Shortly after Vanessa posted the news on Instagram, Kobe confirmed it on Facebook less than an hour before the Lakers hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce in December 2011, seeking to end a marriage that began in April 2001. The Bryants have two daughters, Natalia and Gianna.
But Kobe and Vanessa haven't acted like a divorcing couple in the past year, with Vanessa and their daughters attending many Lakers home games.
Vanessa Bryant stood by her husband when he was charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman in Colorado in 2003. Prosecutors eventually dropped the charges.
