Shortly after Drake broke his silence about the Big Apple brawl between his camp and Chris Brown's, insisting he was on his way out of the NYC nightclub at the time of the incident, Brown released a statement also proclaiming his innocence in the matter.
"Chris, [girlfriend] Karrueche [Tran] and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at WIP," Brown's spokesman, Jeff Raymond, said in a statement, according to Reuters. "They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further."
In addition to the two entourages partaking in the scuffle — which not only injured Brown, but also his bodyguard, Big Pat — one bystander was also injured during the altercation. TMZ reports that a 24-year-old Australian tourist, Hollie C., had been at the club when the incident occurred and was struck by a flying bottle.
"Within a few moments of noticing glass being thrown around, I saw a glass bottle headed towards me, consequently hitting me in the head," she told the site. "I immediately started to bleed and proceeded to fall in and out of consciousness." She was brought to the hospital, where she received stitches. She has since filed a police report. "I had to take the subway home with no money or jacket," she added. "Nobody would even sit beside me. My friends were so scared because they did not know where I was."
Footage has since surfaced on GossipCop of Chris Brown and Meek Mill (who was with Drake and reportedly threw the bottle at Brown) leaving the club. Meek was spotted walking down the sidewalk, while Brown takes off his shirt before getting into a black SUV. Drake is also in the clip, but he is partially hidden in the crowd. Trey Songz was also filmed walking out of the club. The video, posted by We Mobbin DVD, implies that more footage will soon find its way online, for a price, including footage of the actual fight.
Meek Mill has since denied having anything to do with the fight. The club has yet to return MTV News' request for further comment.
