Chris Brown & Drake Face $16 Million Lawsuit Over Club Brawl

The drama between Chris Brown and Drake isn’t over yet. Both of them are actually united (in a sense): they are on the receiving end of a $16 million lawsuit from the club where they and their entourages got into a nasty brawl. The nightclub, W.I.P., alleges Chris and Drake were behind their entourages’ fighting. E! News reports the lawsuit alleges:
According to the lawsuit, Brown and Drake “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman”â€”presumablyÂ Rihanna. The suit adds when they “crossed paths” at the venue they “began to fight violently with each other.”
The club states that while it ensured no one in Brown or Drake’s entourage was armed, both artists arrived “with their 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.”
Per the suit, Brown and Drake started fighting, then “each ordered his security personnel, bodyguards, friends and entourage to join the fight, which erupted into a violent brawl on a massive scale.”
Each man’s entourage members “fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture, thereby circumventing the nightclubs’ extensive efforts to ensure a safe environment,” according to the club’s suit.
“Terrorized patrons ran for cover,” the suit alleges, adding that clubbers used “banquettes and tables as improvised shields. Most were unable to protect themselves.”
…the club’s suit says [Chris and Drake] “should have foreseen that their notoriety and celebrity would ensure that their acts had far-reaching and devastating effects.”
I foresee a settlement. What do you think?
