In June, artists Chris Brown and Drake got into a brawl in a New York City nightclub. Now, they are being sued for $16 million in damages.
Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which has a financial stake in the NYC venue where the brawl went down, claims in a lawsuit that both stars "shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman," according to TMZ.
The suit then states that "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."
TMZ reports that suit claims that the crews of both artists "fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture."
According to the New York Times, Drake's entourage reportedly rebuffed Brown's gesture of a bottle of champagne at W.i.P nightclub on June 14th. Ice chips were thrown at Brown and then a bottle was reportedly thrown from Brown's table into the crowd. Four bottles were then thrown from Drake's table, one aimed straight for Brown. Brown's girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, suffered a concussion, and Brown tweeted a picture of a cut on his chin following the altercation.
The fight allegedly was over Barbadian beauty Rihanna, who has been romantically linked to both men in the past.
E! Online reported that afterwards, the State Liquor Authority revoked the club's liquor license, after an emergency meeting called for a zero tolerance policy for "violent bars."
