Kobe is known for many things on and off the court; his ball handling skills are ridiculous, his ‘love’ for the ladies is legendary and now he can add bitchassness to his roster of talents. Flip the script for more

KOBE Bryant slam-dunked Spike Lee right before the taping of “Kobe: Doin’ Work” by demanding creative control over the documentary and forcing the director to drive to his house to beg for a meeting to save the project, sources told Page Six.

Lee had worked for months to get permission from Bryant, the Lakers team, coach Phil Jackson, the NBA and ESPN, which will air the day-in-the-life documentary on May 16. The director had already flown to Los Angeles, where 30 cameras were in place for the April 13, 2008, Lakers game against the San Antonio Spurs.

But suddenly Bryant said he wouldn’t cooperate unless he was granted creative control, sources said. Lee tried several times to call Bryant, who wouldn’t accept his calls. So Lee, at the suggestion of ESPN broadcaster Stephen A. Smith, drove to Bryant’s house in a gated community, where Bryant refused to see him, sources said.

Kobe, stop being a little b*tch. Spike Lee, one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, is trying to immortalize your “greatness” and you can’t even pick up the f*cking phone? Looks like you’ve been taking a few cues from your crazy ass wife.
