LeBron James
is gonna be one exhausted (and hungover) NBA champion today ... 'cause the guy partied his face off 'til 6 AM ... and TMZ has the pics.

James and the rest of the world champion Miami Heat hit up the LIV Miami nightclub at the Fontainebleau Hotel ... where LeBron was drinking out of a 15-liter bottle of Ace of Spades champagne ... which usually run around $75k.

Sources at the club tell us ... LeBron grabbed the mic ... and rapped along with the music all night long ... while a bunch of his teammates puffed away on cigars.

At one point, 'Bron rapped along with the song "Riot" by 2 Chainz while LMFAO rocked out on a nearby stage.

Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin

Score Insanely

Spectacular Mansion

EXCLUSIVE

0621_platrow_house_launch_1Gwyneth Paltrow is in escrow on one of the most spectacular estates on the westside of L.A. ... and it's costing her and hubby Chris Martin a pretty penny ... TMZ has learned.

The house -- courtesy of famed architect Windsor Smith -- was listed for $10,450,000. We're told Gwyneth and Chris paid close to the asking price.

The house has 6 bedrooms and 8 baths, which means their 2 kids will probably each get their own rooms.

It was built in 2011, and apparently the real estate crash took its toll. The house was originally listed at $11,960,000 in September, 2011, but reduced recently.

The house, which is planted on rolling grounds and lined with shady sycamores and even has a stable, is perfect for people with English accents.

Meg Ryan

Sells Crazy

Beautiful Mansion

Meg Ryan sells her beautiful mansion.
Meg Ryan
has just unloaded her spectacular Bel Air mansion for a huge price ... TMZ has learned.

Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Meg raked in $11,125,000 in the sale -- close to the $11,400,000 asking price. 

Meg bought the 6,877 square foot mansion in 2000 in the middle of her divorce from Dennis Quaid.  Her neighbors include Jennifer Aniston, Michael Bay, Berry Gordy and Darren Star.

The best news for Meg ... she made a killing. Ryan bought the estate for the very reasonable price of $8.6 million.

As for the lucky buyer -- he's Adam Bernhard, who just sold his clothing company for $270 million, so $11 mil is like a condo in the Valley. 

Adam was represented by the Zelig of realtors, celebrity realtor Kurt Rappaport.

Victim #4 --

I Blame DRAKE

for Nightclub Brawl

6/19/2012 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0618_chris_brown_drake_victim_launch_v4Drake is solely to blame for inflaming the violent mob that severely injured several innocent people ... so says a 4th woman who was injured in the melee and is now threatening to sue the rapper.

TMZ has learned ... Innocent Victim #4, Vladimira Brace, has lawyered up -- claiming she suffered a spinal injury when she was trampled in the melee that ensued inside W.i.P. nightclub in NYC on June 13.

Brace's attorney has already fired off a letter to Drake's reps ... saying point blank, "Your client instigated a brawl with Mr. Chris Brown" ... and adds, "[Drake's] actions were reckless and negligent in inflaming a violent mob."

The letter continues, "My client personally observed several members of [Drake's] entourage throwing bottles of champagne with reckless and criminal disregard of the well-being of the innocent bystanders."

Brace's attorney, Allan Friedman, claims Drake has a "well documented history" of vulgar, abusive and profane remarks concerning women -- and notes, "It is regrettable that apparently many innocent young women have been severely injured by this incident."

Sources connected with Drake tell TMZ ... Friedman's allegations are "laughable." They say first of all, Drake was there with a couple of security guys and that was it. They note both Chris Brown and Meek Mill both had large entourages. They also say the notion that Drake has an abusive history of women is absurd on 2 counts. First, they say it's not true. Second, Chris Brown .... well, you know.

3 other women have also claimed they were injured in the Drake vs. Chris Brown fight ... including a 24-year-old Australian tourist who needed 16 stitches after she was hit by a flying bottle.

Rodney King

Weed Plants, Pitchfork

Confiscated from Home

6/18/2012 2:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0618_rodney_king_death_scene_launchCops have confiscated weed plants and a pitchfork from Rodney King's home as evidence in the death investigation.

Cops are also looking into reports that Rodney was crying uncontrollably shortly before his next-door neighbor heard a splash.

Rodney's fiancee reportedly told police she didn't try to pull Rodney from the pool because she's a poor swimmer.

Meanwhile, the coroner has completed the autopsy on King's body ... but will not announce an official cause of death until additional toxicology tests and tissue studies have been performed.

The results usually take between 4 to 6 weeks.

A rep for the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department tells us, "There will be no final ruling as to the cause and manner of death until the requested test results have been received and reviewed in context with the autopsy findings."

TMZ broke the story ... King's fiancee discovered his body at the bottom of the pool at the couple's home in Rialto, CA on Sunday morning.

King's fiancee insists Rodney had been drinking and smoking pot in the hours before his death -- and believes his death was accidental. However, people close to Rodney are concerned she's not telling the whole story.

Stay tuned ...

Mel Gibson

Life's Nothing But

A Rose Garden ... Again

EXCLUSIVE

Mel Gibson dancing with Maria MenounosMel Gibson blew off some serious steam Saturday night, partying until 4 AM at Maria Menounos' home.

Maria threw a bash for her 34th birthday.  A wardrobe friend of Maria's brought Mel along and he quickly made himself at home in her Encino pad, grinding away without a care in the world.

As for the question, "WHO THE F**K WANTS TO EAT?," Mel certainly did, because girls in tiny grass skirts were serving hors d'oeuvres all night long.

BTW, the party had a Hawaiian theme, so Mel was greeted at the door with a lei -- we're guessing she wasn't Russian.
