Kobe Bryant's NBA Bash -- Not All VIPs Welcome

2/18/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant is hosting an ULTRA-exclusive Hollywood party during All-Star weekend -- but TMZ has learned everyone in the VIP section must pass a "screening process" before they'll be allowed near the NBA superstar Saturday night.

The party is supposed to be INSANE -- with organizers dropping roughly $50,000 to give Boulevard 3 nightclub an Asian-themed makeover in honor of Kobe enshrining his hands and feet at Grauman's Chinese Theater earlier that day. 

But not just any schmuck with a wad of cash will be allowed to get all schmoozy with Kobe -- event producer Jeru Tillman tells us they will have a vigorous screening process for anyone who wants to purchase a VIP table near Kobe's private section.

And for the fans who can't cross the VIP rope ... we're told there will be plenty of other cool stuff at the party -- including a 15-foot custom made dragon.

Who cares??? This SOB should be sitting in a prison cell right now. But if you are rich enough, you can get away with anything in this country.

He was arrested for raping a girl in Colorado.

Most arrests come from the logic of probable cause. The police and detectives investigated the incident and then arrested him based on the information they had at the time. Arrested, with a mug shot, charged and bonded out of jail. These are facts.

Someone made a substantial payment and he is free to resume his silly basketball career. Most other guys that raped girls are forced to stand trial and are usually found guilty and sentenced to huge lenghts in prison. But not Kobe.


Heres the deal, she was raped. She was offered a ton of cash and decided that at the end of the day, "do I want to be a poor victim or a rich victim?" She chose the cash. I may have too if the number was right. Obviously Kobe's team had the right number.

There are thousands of other professional atheletes one could homor and worship rather than this rapist. Thousands of players go their entire careers blemish free without any accusations of misconduct, but like society there are the 1-2% that refuse to play by the rules.

Kobe Bryant was arrested and charged with rape. I would tend to believe a group of skilled detectives than an uneducated basketball player with a blank checkbook.

Hope everyone has a great time at the rapist's party. May I suggest not leaving your wives and girlfriends unattended around Kobe.

Find a new hero to worship....
