“We are pleased to announce that we have reconciled. Our divorce action will be dismissed.  We are looking forward to our future together,” read the statement, which Vanessa posted on her Instagram account on Jan. 11.

Signs Of A Reconciliation

“Happy New Year Everyone! My hope is for everyone to have a blessed, healthy, happy 2013 full of joy and laughter. I’m thankful for the 99% of fans that have expressed love and support for my family and I,” Vanessa wrote on Dec. 31.

Aside from Vanessa’s joyous message on New Year’s, the recently reunited couple have been using their Twitter and Instagram accounts to show signs of love to one another.

Kobe, having joined Twitter on Jan. 4, shared a photo of his wife sending him a big kiss.

Vanessa joined Instagram in December, but has already shared love for her husband on the social media app.

Kobe’s Mistakes

Vanessa filed for divorce from Kobe in December 2011, but the proceedings were never finalized. Vanessa, a former dancer, was reportedly fed up after Kobe allegedly cheated on her multiple times with other women.

Vanessa infamously stood by her man when he was accused of sexual assault in Colorado in 2003.

The couple has two daughters, Natalia, 9, and Giana, 6. The couple never signed a prenup, entitling Vanessa to half of Kobe’s fortune if they were to get divorced.
