We're told Vanessa had caught Kobe with "multiple women" over the years ... but his latest affair was the straw that broke the camel's back ... and she felt she needed to finally end the marriage. 

This is the infamous TMZ report that first reported the Kobe Bryant divorce story, and now everyone is fishing to find the woman who broke this proverbial straw.

Yesterday the rumors were centered around actress Sanaa Lathan, who was seen hanging out with Kobe at a recent Jay-Z and Kayne West Watch the Throne concert. She took to Twitter to confirm she is not involved with the Lakers star in any way, shape or form. She did suggest that Kobe isn’t interested in African American women as if she was giving us some sort of clue.

Now that people are satisfied with Lathan’s response, it’s on to the next gorgeous famous person rumored to be connected to Bryant.

Jessica Burciaga, who was Miss February 2009 for Playboy Magazine, was caught by TMZ cameras on Monday and had a very simple response when asked if she’s been seeing Kobe: “Not I.”

Hmmm. OK, I guess that answers the question. She accompanied her response with an odd finger waging motion reminiscent of the same thing Babu used to do to Jerry on multiple episodes of Seinfeld.

Then there is Globalgrind.com’s report that Carla DiBello, Kim Kardashian’s best friend and producer, was also seen at the Watch The Throne concert. The rumor is accompanied by a picture of DiBello and Kardashian talking while a silent Kobe looks on.

Who knows what the real story is in this mess, but it sounds like Vanessa certainly wasn’t lying when she said Kobe had cheated on her “multiple times.”

My question is: how many girls at this recent concert were out to snag Kobe? Watch the throne indeed.
