Kobe and Vanessa Bryant attend the skills competition at the NBA's All-Star Saturday Night in Dallas in February, 2011.

Kobe Bryant is not like most men.

When most men get divorced they lose the house to the ex-wife and drive away in the station wagon.

Kobe Bryant is losing the house, the other house, and the third house. Yes, all three Newport Beach mansions will go to the Laker guard's soon-to-be ex-wife.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that property records at the Orange County Clerk-Recorders Office in Santa Ana indicate that the homes have been recently transfered to Vanessa Bryant.

The three OC properties are worth a total of $18.8 million. But before you shed a tear for #24, Kobe made about $35 million in 2011 according to Sports Illustrated.

The couple, who have been together for 10 years, have yet to officially divorce, but the Times speculates Kobe is worth about $150 million, thus will be ordered to fork over approximately $75 million since the pair never signed a pre-nuptial agreement.

This isn't the first time Kobe has transfered millions of dollars of his wealh to the woman he married when he was 21. In 2003, the perennial All-Star was accused of a sexual assult in Colorado. The case was eventually dropped and Kobe bought Vanessa a ring worth approximately $4 million.
