Meek Mill

My Party Lion Is Super Famous

And Charges $3,000 Per Hour

File this Under: "Only In Hollywood" -- the caged lion at Meek Mill's humongous Grammy after-party moonlights as an actor ... and once starred in a movie with Matt Damon, TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the lion tell us ... the lion's name is Felix -- and rapper Meek Mill shelled out $9,000 for the king of the jungle to appear at his Hollywood Hills mansion party for 3 hours.

As we previously reported, Mill's party was PACKED with huge stars like Diddy, Drake, Nicki Minaj and more ... but Felix happens to be a heavyweight in his own right.

We know ... Felix had a starring role in the 2011 flick, "We Bought a Zoo" ... which featured Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.

Felix has also starred in several commercials (he's not as proud about those -- but hey, he's gotta pay the bills).

We called Felix for comment ... but he's not much of a talker.

Meek is a simple minded s***bag and the people who own the lion deserve to get mauled

This practice of hiring animals for parties should be banned. Doesn't do anything for the lion's health to be around loud music. Hopefully, the lion gets loose one day and takes Meek Mill for a Big Mac!

A wild animal in a cage is a lot stress for the animal, no matter how the animal was trained. Showing that caged animal at a loud party is a torture. If these s issy N. would have opened the cage on the party, there's no doubt that the lion would have attacked the people, because of pure stress.

Meek Mill is a disrespectful irresponsible uneducated bimbo N. and should be treated like a wild animal himself, strictly speaking, worse than that. That's what i'm talking about!

I hope Meek makes the mistake of trying to handle that lion by himself and gets mauled. Or maybe we should make him live his life out in a cage. S*** like him would actually deserve it.

They should be jailed and harassed for putting this wild animal thru such torture. No telling how loud the music was.

I don't understand why we're attacking Meek Mill. All he did was pay for a service that someone was offering. How bout instead of going after the John, go after the people who are pimpin the lion out.

Felix should be roaming the plains of Africa where he belongs. Meek should be stripped, smeared in chicken fat, and let loose amongst the pride.

Animals are NOT party decorations. How is this legal?

First, let's address this Meek Mill person? Never heard of him. But, I guess his ego is well stroked now because he had a lion at the party. Someone needs to put him in a cage for party display.
