Ray J Hospitalized After Billboard Awards


Ray J
crashed and burned the morning after the Billboard Music Awards ... and landed in the hospital ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Ray J was extremely upset after his confrontation with Whitney Houston's family -- notably Pat Houston -- during the awards ceremony. On Monday morning, someone went into Ray J's hotel room and realized the singer was "out of it" and couldn't get out of bed.

We're told Ray J was extremely disoriented and was immediately taken to the hospital by ambulance.

As for what happened ... it's looking like a combo of exhaustion and dehydration. Ray J had just returned from a quick, 32-hour round trip to China for business and when he landed he immediately drove 4 hours to Las Vegas for the awards show.

Ray J is still in the hospital. No word on when he'll be released.

Celine's $29 Mil. Crib

Inside the Stars Mega-Mansion

Clearly it pays to be one of the most successful recording artists in the world -- music royalty Celine Dion is unloading her very regal Montreal estate for a whopping $29 million!

The Hidden Hills home that was the centerpiece of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" for 5 seasons has been sold -- and the TV producer who bought it has exorcised all Kardashian demons by tearing the whole thing down ... except for one precious piece.

The new owner had the homestead disassembled piece by Armenian piece ... the toilets, cabinets, even the roof were donated to Habitat for Humanity.  The upshot -- Kardashian remnants will adorn homes throughout the world.

We're told the owner plans on building a modern, industrial-type home in its place.  

As for the one piece the owner kept ... the stripper pole, which will become a coat rack.

Total downgrade.
