Are Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant Getting Back Together?

Old habits die hard…Just ask Kobe Bryant.

If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then this snap of Laker hoopster Kobe Bryant smooching his estranged wife, Vanessa, could fill a supermarket romance novel.

The former “Basketball Wife” dropped into the team’s Valentine’s Day game against the Atlanta Hawks and the two were caught playing a game of tonsil hockey in the tunnel on the way into the locker room.

Awww snap! TMZ tattles say Vanessa and Kobe are indeed discussing the possibility of getting back together.

Hmmm: Is it just us or does this sound suspiciously like a case of “It’s Cheaper to Keep Her?”

Vanessa petitioned a court to end her prenup-less 10 year marriage to Kobe in December. She’ll reportedly receive all three of their Newport Beach estates as part of the settlement. Mrs. Bryant’s also slated to take close to half of Kobe’s $175 million fortune.

The divorce becomes final in June.
