Nightclub Sues Chris Brown and Drake for Brawl

The lawsuit asks the pop stars for $16 million in damages.

Published August 16, 2012

Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., a financial partner in the w.i.p. nightclub, is suing Chris Brown and Drake for the bottle-throwing brawl that went down on June 14. The company claims that the two "shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman," who reportedly is Rihanna, and asks for $16 million in damages.

"Each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards, 'security' personnel, employees, friends and other members of their entourage consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat," stated the court filing, according to The New York Post

The lawsuit goes on to say that Breezy and Drake both ordered their security to go after each other’s entourages, and that they cleverly "fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture."

Since the clash, w.i.p. and its sister bar, Greenhouse, have re-opened with restrictions and now must serve drinks in plastic cups in addition to other restrictions. NBA star Tony Parker was among several people that were injured by the flying glass during the fight, and is suing the club for $20 million after getting glass in his eye.

Chris and Drake’s legal teams have yet to release any statements regarding Entertainment Enterprises Ltd.’s charges. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
