Kobe Bryant 's impending divorce from his wife of a decade Vanessa Bryant has suddenly made him one of the most eligible bachelors in America, with women likely to queue in an attempt to get a share of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball star. There are already rumors as to who one of the frontrunners might be, as Kim Kardashian gets back on the man hunt having dusted herself down from her disastrous 72 day long marriage to another basketball star, Kris Humphries, earlier this year.
That's what the Chicago Sun Times reckons anyway, claiming that the 31 year-old socialite is extremely attracted to the star - we bet - and, in rather more twisted rumours, suggesting that it was her own mother and cut-throat manager Kris Jenner that orchestrated Bryant and his wife's divorce by leaking details of the sports star's discrepant past to his horrified other half. Fishy indeed, especially when you consider that Fox News linked Carla DiBello, a friend of the Kardashians and one of the producers on their reality show 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', to Bryant.
However if Kim wants to get to the 33 year-old, she's going to have to overcome actress Sanaa Lathan who also reportedly has her sights set on the star. She was most recently seen on TV's 'A Raisin In The Sun' and in the film 'Contagion.'
