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.

While i am sure Ben and Kobi could compare sex crimes, i doubt that Kobe would want competition.

Oh come one, she wasn't raped. She went there willingly and cried rape after just to get some money out of him. She even had sex with someone else AFTER she left Kobe--it was proven!

Well said, well said. It is a sad thing that this man rapes a young woman, pays her off and then walks free. Oh, and the ONLY reason this woman dropped the charges is because she was getting death threats from wackos. The District Attorney in Boulder would NOT have charged Mr. Bryant is they did not have enough evidence to win a conviction. Why do people think the cops and the D.A. are all stupid or that the D.A. is hot to charge Kobe without evidence? If there were NO evidence, don't you think Bryant would have sued the Boulder P.D. for false arrest??

This pervert is a criminal and a rapist. End of story.

Who in their right mind would go to this rapist's party and want to be in the same room with either him or his snaggle toothed, maid abusing Latina wife? These people are ghetto trash, plain and simple. His wife sells herself to a rapist for Louis Vuitton and a Micky Mouse purple ring. What a class act both he and his uneducated high school dropout wife are.

Wonder what Kobe would do if somebody azz raped one of his daughters in about about 12 years???? Think about it Kobe and do unto others as you would want done to you.

Why all the hate for Kobe??? Because he is a rapist. He$$, even prison imates hate rapists and child rapist/killers. Kobe is lower than pond s***.

Why in the he$$ is this azzclown getting his hand and foot prints at Graumann's? He's not an actor. This thug should be in prison. If Kobe gets his footprints in cement, then we should all give honors to Polanski, Robert Blake, and O.J.

Both Kobe and Vanessa are boogie A-holes...how vain are they to think people will clamour to get next to them. Guess Vanessa's forgotten she's just a Mexican from Huntington Beach.

I will guess that not too many people on this board have an NBA championship ring but I will guess that not too many people here have been charged with azz raping a teenager either.

I also employ household help and not one of them have ever sued me for abuse. The Bryants are both class acts.

Kobe has paid off BOTH is maid and his rape victim. Ahh...money in the hands of low class, undecated ghetto trash is awesome.

Kobe has the rings AND he IS a rapist! Soon, better, younger players will come along and this thug and his loser video ho will be yesterday's trash.

48. I couldn't care less about this jerk's party. What puzzles and angers me is why in the heck are his hands and feet being enshrined at Grauman's Chinese Theater? What's that all about? That honor is supposed to be for people who are and/or were stars in the movie business. Sure, he's a great basketball player, I'll give him that...but please.
