EXCLUSIVE

Rob Gronkowski ain't the only guy on the Patriots who loves to party -- Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler hit the club scene hard in Vegas last night ... and TMZ Sports has the pics!

Butler was the guest of honor at Chateau nightclub in the Paris Las Vegas -- where the 24-year-old got his own booth, his own custom champagne ... and his own personal cheerleaders. 

Multiple sources tell us Butler was super nice to everyone -- taking pics with fans and dancing all night long.

It's been a pretty good month for Butler -- as we previously reported, Chevy decided to give him a FREE TRUCK for making that game-saving interception in the Super Bowl.

Sounds like a reason to party to us .

Birdman

DENIED at Nicki Minaj Pre-Grammy Party

2/8/2015 8:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

020815_birdman_launch_v2Birdman and his very big crew were turned away from Nicki Minaj's pre-Grammy party in West Hollywood early Sunday, and cops raced over to make sure things didn't get out of hand.

There's talk Nicki is going to bail on Birdman's Cash Money and follow Lil Wayne, so the fact that the mogul was sent walking seems like a big deal.  He showed up at 1:45 AM and the club is supposed to close at 2, and you hear a guy at the door tell Birdman's posse the club was already closed. 

At the same time, there was a good 15 minutes left and Birdman's kind of a big deal, and that may be why you hear someone say that Nicki didn't want him in.

Either way ... he didn't get in.

One of the most famous strip clubs in NYC is trying to rub NBA players the right way ... offering FREE LAP DANCES to every single player in the league during All-Star Weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The people over at Scores tell us the offer is pretty simple -- if you're on a NBA roster, hot naked women will grind your junk. And it's all for the low low price of ... on the house. 

Think of it as the stripper's way of giving back ... 

As for coaches, owners and GM's they're out of luck ... we're told this deal is only valid for the dudes ballin' on the court.

Kids, practice those jumps shots.

Former Playboy centerfold Kristina Shannon fell HARD multiple times, and damn near spilled right out of her top during a wasted night on the Sunset Strip.

Our photog caught Kristina mid-tumble as she was leaving the famed Chateau Marmont Thursday night -- and her poor friend was struggling to keep Shannon upright. 

One half of the Shannon twins did manage to tell us about her new twins -- she says she got new boobs ... which she proceeded to flaunt, but that's not even the best part of this video.

Watch Kristina attempt to get from the curb to her car. It's epic ... as in #epicfail

New England Patriots Super Bowl PartyIt was bottles and models for the New England Patriots Tuesday night ... poppin' a giant $12,500 bottle of bubbly in a Boston nightclub ... and TMZ Sports has the pics. 

Several members of the Super Bowl championship squad hit up Bijou nightclub ... including Chandler Jones, Akeem Ayers, Devin McCourty, Jonas Gray, Brandon LaFell and Jimmy Garoppolo

We're told the guys went through one 15-liter "Nebuchadnezzar" of Belaire -- $12,500 a pop -- plus 50 BOTTLES of the regular sized Luc Belaire Rare Rose.

Gronk would be proud. 

Nick Jonas

Headlines Bat Mitzvah ...

Surprise, You're a Woman Now!

Nick Jonas Bat Mitzvah VideoYou'd expect all eyes to be on Nick Jonas while he's performing for a bunch of 13-year-olds -- yet an adorable preteen fan stole his thunder during a Bat Mitzvah.

Nick made $100,000 to be the surprise singer at Jillian Gaslow's Paris-themed event in NYC last weekend. If you're wondering who coughed up the dough ... Jillian's pop is a furniture industry big wig.

The JoBro was hired to belt out 3 tunes, including "Jealous," during a 30 minute performance -- and while the crowd LOVED him ... Jillian seemed a little nervous and starstruck onstage.

Best part of the vid ... the little girl who stormed the stage and shocked Nick with a bear hug. #SpotlightStolen.

EXCLUSIVE

Modern Family Eric Stonestreet Gay"Modern Family" star Eric Stonestreet's got moves you've never seen ... and he unleashed them all while blowing the roof off a West Hollywood gay bar.

Stonestreet -- who refers to himself as "openly straight" -- channeled his inner Cameron Tucker last weekend at Flaming Saddles. And man ... Eric was feeling like a woman while singing and dancing to Shania Twain. It's pretty awesome.

Watch Eric bring it as he gets down with the rest of the bar. Can you feel it?

Snoop & Diddy

We're Uniting East, West Coasts

... During All-Star Weekend

Snoop Dogg and Diddy aren't just co-hosting a mega-party during NBA All-Star Weekend ... they're gunning to UNITE THE COASTS once and for all ... Snoop tells TMZ Sports

The rap moguls have teamed up to co-headline "The Tip Off" mega-concert on February 12th at Madison Square Garden ... and they both want to use the event to help squash any East vs. West beef that may be lingering in the hip-hop world. 

"It's been a long waited opportunity for two rap history giants to rep the East and rep the West with love," Snoop says.

"The fans wanted this one! Bringing the coasts together during NBA All-Star Weekend."

And check this out ... Snoop and Diddy could have even more in common this week -- Snoop's football star son is set to announce his college tomorrow ... and UCLA is reportedly in the mix. 

Interesting, since Diddy's kid is already a member of the Bruins football team. 

The big announcement is tomorrow -- stay tuned.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski brought the party train out west Monday night ... hitting up the Hollywood nightclub scene with some pals -- and, of course, things got crazy. 

TMZ Sports shot footage of Gronk leaving DBA nightclub -- with a giant rip in the back of his pants -- when he was approached by the infamous "rose lady."

What happened next was legendary ... 

Gronk got into town earlier in the day and was kicking it by his hotel pool in the sunny 77 degree weather.

Jimmy Fallon

Had Him a Blast With ...

Drunken 'Grease' Sing-Along

EXCLUSIVE
012715_jimmy_fallon_launchJimmy Fallon relived his famous send-off from "SNL" -- singing a "Grease" classic -- but this time he had a barroom full of hammered backup singers ... which just made it more awesome.

Fallon was at NYC's Marie's Crisis Cafe last weekend when most of the bar started singing "Summer Nights" ... with Jimmy leading the chorus. But check out the video -- it wasn't easy keeping the buzzed crowd on the beat ... or the right verse. 

Jimmy still managed to bring down the house, just like in his final "SNL" in 2004 -- where we're guessing there was slightly less drinking than in the bar.

JaMarcus Russell

Poppin Bottles With Rick Ross

1/28/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details
0127-julia-beverly-jamarcus-russell-instagram-01JaMarcus Russell might've finally given up on his NFL dreams, but his dreams of living like a boss look very alive 'cause TMZ Sports has a pic of the former #1 overall pick hanging with one of the biggest stars in rap ... Rick Ross.

The two hung out on January 16th after Ross performed the same day at the Nightown nightclub in Destin, Florida. We're told Russell -- a HUGE fan -- heard about the show and drove all the way in to chop it up with Rozay. 

Judging from the pic, the two seemed to hit it off -- and had a great time while partying with several bottles of Ross' Luc Belaire Rare Rose.  

Here's the thing ... Russell has struggled with substance abuse in the past (sizzurp) ... and also had a close call with foreclosure -- so it's interesting to see him balling out with booze and a fancy piece of jewelry on his wrist.  

On a more hilarious note -- the reason why Russell is partly cropped out of the picture is because the woman who took the photo is Julia Beverly -- the founder of Ozone Magazine and Pimp C's biographer -- and she didn't know who he was.
 
Oops.

JaVale McGee & D.J. Swearinger

NBA Star and NFL Star Unite

To CRUSH L.A. Strip Club

What do a 7'0" center for the Denver Nuggets and a 5'10" safety for the Houston Texans have in common?

A love of dat ass ...

Cause JaVale McGee (the center) and D.J. Swearinger (the safety) were both at a L.A. strip club this past Monday CRUSHING it ... showing more than $16K on some of the hard working ladies.

The two stars hit up Ace Of Diamonds in L.A. -- the hottest new shake spot in the city -- and from what we're told the two went BANANAS inside the joint, spending some serious green on the ta-ta talent.

For those keeping count, our booty club sources say JaVale -- who makes about $12 mil-a-year -- dropped around $10K while D.J. -- who "only" banks about $800K a year -- precipitated an impressive $6K.

It ain't trickin' if you got it ...
