(AP Photo/LM Otero, File) (Newser) – Looks like Kobe Bryant won't be splitting up his fortune after all: He and wife Vanessa are back together. "We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled," they announce in a statement to Us. "Our divorce action will be dismissed. We are looking forward to our future together." Vanessa filed for divorce in December 2011 but Kobe had been determined to win her back, and they've been spotted together a few times since then. They have two daughters together.
