As more details emerge about the reported altercation between Chris Brown’s and Drake’s entourages at a Soho nightclub, a rep for Drizzy is denying that the Canadian MC had anything to do with the scuffle at NYC hotspot W.I.P.
“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,” his rep told TMZ. “[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”
The site further reports that the fight broke out between the two camps after Brown and Meek Mill, who was at Drizzy’s table, started “trash talking” each other. Despite earlier suggestions, it was reportedly not over Rihanna, who has been romantically linked to both Drake and Brown. According to the TMZ source, Brown’s face was hurt when Mill threw a bottle at him.
Other sources told GossipCop.com that the incident went down around the same time as last call, at 3:50 a.m., when the two crews were partying along with Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo and Fabolous. Right before Brown got hit in the face with the bottle, the eyewitness said Drake looked “pissed” and “serious.” Once the bottle was thrown, by someone in Drake’s camp — though the site does not specify Mill as the assailant — that’s when things got ugly.
For about 15 seconds, the two parties, made up of about 15 people each, began throwing glasses, bottles and metal ice containers at each other, with some people getting caught in the crossfire. The site also obtained a photo of Brown’s bodyguard, Big Pat, who got a serious head injury during the scuffle. In the photo, Pat is lying on a stretcher with his bloody head bandaged.
While GossipCop reported that neither Drake nor Brown ever hit each other, Brown did get a wound on his chin. Right after the incident, both parties left the club and then police officials and the club’s bouncers cleared out the club.
A call placed by MTV News to the W.I.P. nightclub was not returned by press time.
