Ludacris was ready to hit the party scene after news broke that he won primary physical custody of his daughter Cai Bella. It doesn't appear his new wife Eudoxiee was on the scene, so maybe she's at home playing the step-mommy role.

"Uncle" Ron Meyer aka THE DON of NBCUniversal was hanging out. Even @jiffpom was on the scene!!! #SB49"

It appears Kevin's shirt of choice from last night has sparked an "Instagram War" between him and a few of his buddies:

Kevin has declared war on Drake, Meek Mill and comedian Lil Duval after they cracked jokes on his sleeveless leather look. Ha! Check the video of Kevin "declaring war" above.
