Kobe Bryant is one of the greatest individuals to ever step foot on planet earth. Both as an athlete and as a human being, Kobe has done some great things.

From winning five NBA Championships to his work with numerous non-profit organizations like the After-School All-Stars and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

In fact, the Black Mamba even started his own foundation. Alongside his wife, Vanessa Bryant, Kobe started the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation, which aims at helping young people in need.

Kobe Bryant tried to patch things up with his wife with a $4 million ring after admitting he committed adultery in 2003

Back in 2003, Kobe went through one of the most difficult periods of his life. The Laker legend had to deal with an accusation of s*xual assault and had to publicly admit to cheating on his wife.

Obviously, he wholeheartedly denied said accusations all while his loving and caring wife, Vanessa Bryant stood by his side. In fact, Bryant tried to make up for his grievous mistake by taking his wife jewelry shopping.

His attempt at damage control was a success, as the couple looked happy together at a boutique in Santa Monica. This comes as no surprise, seeing as they bought a $4 million ring!

That is certainly one way to apologize for cheating on your wife, and it worked seeing as they remained together for the next 17 years.
