12 of 24: Kobe Bryant and wife Vanessa Bryant's marriage endured a messy trial in 2003 when the Los Angeles Lakers basketball star was accused of sexual assault by hotel worker Katelyn Faber, then 19. Bryant denied her allegations and later said the two had had consensual sex. The case was ultimately dropped after she refused to testify, but the scandal placed a noticeable dent in the athlete's image. His wife Vanessa supported him the entire way and they remain together still. The pair has two children together, daughters Natalia Diamante Bryant, born in January 2003, and Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, born in May 2006. The couple reportedly does not have a pre-nuptial agreement.
