Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant has bought a home in the exclusive Newport Coast neighborhood for more than $4 million.
Bryant, 23, co-captain and guard on the two-time defending champion Lakers, bought the Mediterranean-style house in a cul-de-sac from sports agent Dwight Manley.
Privacy was a top priority for Bryant and his wife, Vanessa. They looked at about 15 homes in the area, said Chris Brigandi, a partner at Strada Properties in Newport Beach.
Bryant also owns homes in Los Angeles and Pacific Palisades. The house in Newport Coast will not be the Bryants' primary residence.
