    A Timeline of Drake and Chris Brown's Friend or Foe Relationship
    The relationship between Chris Brown and Drake has just hit the gutter. Reports are surfacing that Chris, Aubrey and their respective camps were involved in a physical tussle earlier today at WIP nightclub in New York City. Brown has tweeted a photo of his injury from the fight, claiming it was done with a bottle. Drake initially remained mum, but his camp eventually told <em>TMZ</em> that the Young Money rapper was on his way out of the club when the altercation took place. Further reports alleged that Meek Mill, who sat at Drake's table, threw the bottle at Breezy.<p>Regardless, reports of tension between Drake and Brown have been circulating for some time. But things weren't always rowdy between the two artists. Though their relationship's been rumored to have deteriorated—presumably due to their respective relationships with Rihanna— they've done songs together in the past. From shared magazine covers to Twitter beefs, check out the rocky timeline of Drake and Chris Brown's friend or foe relationship. —<em>XXL Staff</em> (<a href="https://twitter.com/#!/XXL">@XXLStaff</a>)</p>

Lol.” Chris Brown clapped back and ended the Twitter side of the dispute with, “Id like to send the bullshit a BiG FUCK YOU from the bottom of my ballz! Lol.. Real nigga! Goodnight!”
