Even though the controversy has all but died down among fans, Drake and Chris Brown aren’t off the hook yet for their bottle-throwing brawl. Now, it looks like the two artists have been hit with a $16 million lawsuit for the ruckus they caused at the W.i.P. back in June.
In a recent report from The New York Post, Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. has filed suit against Drizzy and Breezy for the fight that ensued between them and their entourages. The suit reads that that the two artists “shared a grudge against [each] other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman [Rihanna],” which prompted them to “fight violently with each other” after encountering each other in the club.
The suit continues on to indicate that “each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards [and] ‘security’ personnel…consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat.” It then alleges that upon order of Brown and Drake, “their two posses had at each other, throwing highball glasses laden with alcohol, shattering the handles of bottles of spirits to use as makeshift knives, and even throwing full bottles at each other.”
Entertainment Enterprises is also suing W.i.P. and its affiliate club Greenhouse for $4 million, as the negative press ruined a licensing deal that the firm and nightclub had negotiated prior to the fight.
Both the club and the artists also face lawsuits from clubgoers injured in the fracas, including San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker. DX will keep you updated as more information comes to light.
