*A fresh Kobe Bryant scandal is brewing after cameras caught him mouthing what appeared to be a homophobic slur toward a referee during a Los Angeles Lakers game Tuesday night.

It took place during the 3rd quarter of their game with the San Antonio Spurs after Kobe received a technical foul. The NBA star — clearly upset — screams for ref Bennie Adams and appears to mouth the words, “F**king f**got.”

One of the announcers then comments, “You might wanna take the cameras off of him right now, for the children watching.”

A rep for the team tells TMZ, “The Lakers cannot confirm that is what Kobe said or not.”
