*TMZ is reporting of Kobe Bryant’s planned “ULTRA-exclusive Hollywood party” during All-Star weekend, claiming that everyone purchasing a VIP table must pass a “screening process” before they’ll be allowed anywhere near the Lakers star during Saturday night’s bash.

According to the website, organizers are spending 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 event producer Jeru Tillman tells the website they’ll 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,” the site reported.
