Drunken Night of His Life
2/26/2015 8:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ed Sheeran celebrated his Album of the Year win at the BRIT Awards by drinking ALL OF THE ALCOHOL IN LONDON ... or so it seems based on these crazy pics of his night.
Sheeran was spotted all over town Wednesday night -- first hitting up an after-party at Freemasons' Hall and then venturing to The Box Nightclub with Sam Smith.
They reportedly stayed out until 6 AM -- which is obvious from the look on Ed's face at the end of this gallery.
After winning his first award of the night, Sheeran told the show's hosts, "I've got to perform and then I'll drink. Don't film me later."
No film ... but the pics are awesome.

Jas Prince talked to us about the lawsuit he recently filed ... as he was leaving Mr. Chow in Bev Hills. We asked if there's been any progress with Birdman on the financial front, and it's clear he -- like Lil Wayne and Turk -- doesn't have much left to say about the debt.
Keep in mind ... it was Jas' dad, James Prince, who issued a very threatening "courtesy call" to Birdman.
Watch the vid -- sounds like the whole Prince family is getting impatient.
No Signs of Improvement
Still in a Coma
2/26/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bobbi Kristina is not getting better. She is still unresponsive, in a coma, and showing no signs of getting better.
Family sources tell TMZ ... stories that Bobbi Kristina is being taken out of her coma are not accurate. We're told the only change in treatment is that doctors tried weaning her off certain meds to see if she might react but nothing happened. She's in the same condition she's been in for weeks.
Our sources say there have been signs of organ deterioration but she's still basically in the same, unresponsive condition she's been in since a few days after the accident.
As for the tracheotomy, we're told doctors performed the procedure not because she was getting better, but because it's standard operating procedure when a patient might linger in a comatose state for a long period of time.
Our sources say it's possible Bobbi Kristina could hang on for a long period of time in the same state, despite signs of organ failure. It's ultimately up to Bobby Brown to decide how long she'll live in that state.
Questioned, Not Arrested
in 2011 Wal-Mart Incident
2/26/2015 5:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Dez Bryant was questioned by Texas police in 2011 regarding an alleged incident in a Wal-Mart parking lot where a woman was allegedly pulled out of a vehicle by a black male ... but cops determined Dez did not commit a crime ... this according to the police report.
The police report just surfaced ... in the wake of rumors of an alleged video featuring Dez doing something terrible. So far, there is still no video, but Thursday morning a never-before-seen police report finally became public.
The report, from July 11, 2011, shows someone went to Wal-Mart security and said they witnessed a black man drag a woman out of a car around 6 AM. The victim is listed as Ilyne Nash -- Dez Bryant's long-time girlfriend and mother of two of his children.
In the report, first published by NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, cops say a car registered to Bryant was at the scene in the parking lot ... and Dez later arrived to the scene in another car WITH the alleged victim.
In the report, cops say they interviewed several people at the scene, including Bryant, but determined no crime had been committed.
According to the report, Nash did say she got into an argument with another man ... a guy named Alex Penson ... but was adamant she was not assaulted or injured in any way.
The report does not make note of any visible injuries to Nash.
Nash says after the argument, she went to a friend's house ... and contacted Dez to pick her up ... and that's why they were ultimately together when they returned to the Wal-Mart.
In the report cops say, "After speaking with all parties involved, it was determined that there was no offense. All parties were advised they were free to go."
The police report makes NO mention of the video.

With Classic Caddy
2/26/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paris Hilton has an obsessed fan who seems to be as loaded as he is angry, because he bought her an amazing classic Cadillac, and when she refused it, someone mysteriously trashed the whip.
The guy -- whose first name is Johnny -- delivered the Caddy to Paris' Bev Hills gated community on Oscar Sunday. We're told Johnny got past the guard at the front gate by posing as a flower delivery guy, but when he rang Paris' door ... she called the cops.
The car sat on the street for two days, and on Tuesday someone bashed in all the windows. According to sources, Paris is convinced Johnny is the culprit because she wouldn't accept the gift, complete with flowers in the backseat.
Law enforcement sources say they've been on Johnny for a long time. He once flew a plane over the Hilton's Malibu compound with two signs, one of which read, "Can't Get Paris Whitney Hilton Out of My Mind." The other read, "Mr. & Mrs. Hilton, may I court your daughter Paris?"
Johnny also once sent Paris a really expensive wedding dress in the mail with a card that read, "Will you marry me?"
As for the Caddy, it's still sitting on the street because it's legally parked and registered to Johnny.Paris was spotted on the street with the car on Tuesday, taking photos of it as "evidence."

"Whiplash" star J.K. Simmons went off again -- but instead of throwing chairs ... he was tossing out free Mexican food to cops at his favorite lunch spot.

Looking to spread even more love ... J.K. stepped up again when a 3rd cop walked into the restaurant.
We're told Simmons dropped about 50 bucks for all six meals -- which makes the moral of this story: Always be generous. Especially when you can get a great deal.
