Five people suffered minor injuries in the fight at WIP, a club in lower Manhattan, after the music stars’ respective entourages mixed it up, TMZ reports. NYPD officers responded to a call between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m., but both Brown and Drake were gone by then. No one was arrested.
According to Global Grind, the dustup started when Brown sent a bottle to Drake. Drake apparently didn’t take too kindly to the gesture and confronted Brown, and they then began arguing about their mutual ex-girlfriend, Rihanna (Drake briefly dated her after her split from Brown a few years ago). Rapper Meek Mill was also present and by some accounts helped stir up the beef.
Drake reportedly punched Brown, and then bottles started flying. Brown took to Twitter soon after to vent about the incident. He posted a picture of the cut (it’s over on the right) on his chin and the following words (all since deleted): “N***as throwing bottles! Y’all n***az weak! Ok! N***as stand behind security!!!! Ok! U don’t pay them enough! N***as hiding in the bathroom b***h ass n***as! And I’m the singer? Bottles? It’s nothing! Lol How u party wit a rich n***a that hate? Lol…. Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!”
Drake has maintained Twitter silence for the past few days, while Mill cryptically added this Thursday morning: “It wasn’t me … (shaggy voice) lol.”
