After the Wednesday night brawl between Chris Brown and Drake that left bodyguards from Brown’s camp and innocent bystanders injured, Brown has gone to the police with evidence that Drake and his entourage started the fight.
“Chris, Karrueche [Brown’s girlfriend] and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at W.i.P.,” Brown’s publicist told ABC News. “They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further.”
According to TMZ, Brown’s lawyer went to the NYPD with proof that “Take Care” singer Drake and his entourage instigated the scuffle at the New York nightclub.
So what ignited the argument? Brown reportedly sent a bottle of Champagne to Drake’s table before Drake and his crew approached Brown and began arguing over their shared former love interest, Rihanna. Several witnesses have also come forward saying that one of Brown’s friends was making death threats aimed at Drake and his posse. Drake proceeded to reportedly throw the bottle of alcohol at Brown, who later showed off a nasty cut on his chin via Twitter.
However, later accounts say that Drake was not involved in the fight, and that rapper Meek Mill is the one who threw the bottle at Brown.
“[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property,” Drake’s rep said in a statement.
TMZ reports that Drake is not currently a suspect in the investigation of the altercation and is “cooperating” with officials. With the big-name singers seemingly off the hook in the incident, sources say that a member of Brown’s camp may have been the one to incite the altercation.
While no arrests have been made in connection with the brawl, the club’s investigation revealed that W.i.P manager Jonathan Cantor had two warrants out for his arrest — he has since been detained.
