*UPDATED: A representative for Drake has released the following statement:
“Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”
A representative for Brown said the singer and his girlfriend were victims of a “brutal assault” at the Manhattan nightclub.
It is still unclear what prompted the fight.
It was celebrity fight night in New York City as Chris Brown and Drake reportedly threw blows– and bottles– at W.i.P in Manhattan.
Global Grind reports:
“Allegedly the fight started when Chris Brown sent a bottle over to Drake. That’s when the Toronto rapper went face to face in the club with Chris and began arguing about Rihanna. Some believe Meek Mill may have instigated the fight, who was also in the club hanging out with Drake. However after words were exchanged, Drake punched Chris Brown in the face, and hit him in the mouth with a bottle before he could retalitate from the punch.”
NYPD arrived on the scene after receiving a call between 4 and 5 a.m. Chris and Drake were not present.
Five other patrons were harmed in the fight, but no critical injuries were reported and no arrests were made.
Shortly after, Chris hopped on Twitter to express his anger (tweets have since been removed):
“How u [sic] party wit a rich nigga that hate? Lol…. Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!
Niggas is pussy!
[...] Niggas hiding in the bathroom bitch ass niggas!
Ok! Niggas stand behind security!!!! Ok! U don’t pay them enough!”
Seriously guys, can we just get back to the music?
