Vanessa, who filed for divorce from Kobe on December 16, 2011, will not sign the documents to make the divorce final and the estranged couple is reportedly trying to salvage their marriage, according to TMZ.com.

The 29-year-old was already awarded half of Kobe's estimated $150 million estate in their finalized divorce settlement, which was mandatory under California law because the pair was married for 10 years and did not have a prenuptial agreement.

The mother of two was also given all three of their Newport Beach, Calif. mansions. Although Kobe moved out of the family home shortly after her divorce filing, some critics suspect that he is likely to move back in at any moment.

Vanessa, who cited "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce filing, reportedly moved toward ending the marriage after growing tired of 33-year-old Kobe's numerous infidelities.

Carla Dibello, who works as a producer on E! reality shows "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and "Kourtney and Kim Take New York," was identified as being the other woman in Kobe's alleged affair by several media outlets, although these reports were never confirmed.

It is believed that Dibello- who is best friends with Kim Kardashian- and the Los Angeles Lakers star have been friends for years, but eventually the friendship reportedly evolved into something that it shouldn't have, according to Radar Online.

Dibello once worked as director of strategic relations for SBE Group, which owns a number of exclusive restaurants and hotels. Her job involved regular business dealings with high profile celebrities and athletes, which is reportedly how she could have met Kobe.

"[Vanessa's] been dealing with these incidents for a long time and has been a faithful wife, but she's finally had enough," a source previously told TMZ.

Vanessa is said to be trying to salvage her marriage to Kobe for their two daughters Natalia Diamante Bryant, 9, and Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, 5.
