When Kobe Bryant was forced to leave wife Vanessa after cheating allegations, he didn’t have to go very far.  The NBA basketball star found a private villa located on the Newport coast of Southern California.  The resort that Bryant is staying at has 24/7 housekeeping and butler service. However despite these services for $800 a night, Bryant has apparently elected to take advantage of the laundry unit located in the private garage provided to him, as he was spotted doing just that, according to RadarOnline.  Don’t misinterpret that move, thought, because Bryant is still living the life of the rich and the famous after his impending divorce.  According to sources, he has his $400,000 Lamborghini parked outside his villa.

How do you decide where to go after a sudden split with a live-in partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

When you make a decision to separate from a live-in partner, it can come with all sorts of consequences, one of which is where to go after the split.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Assess current living arrangements: If you’re currently paying the rent and are responsible for the lease, then it’s obvious that your partner should be the one to leave and find new living arrangements.  If the reverse is true, you’ll need to relocate.

2. Friends and family: If you have to find somewhere to go after a sudden split, often the best case is to live with a family member or friend until you have more permanent living arrangements figured out.

3. Temporary living quarters: If you have the means, you can live in a resort or hotel like Kobe Bryant decided to do after his  breakup. Of course, if you don’t have quite the same level of income as Bryant, you might have to live without room service.
