Chris Brown and Drake Allegedly Get Into NYC Club Fight
TMZ confirmed with the NYPD that the two artists’s crews got into a fight at WIP and that five people, including Brown, were injured in the brawl, but just with minor bumps, cuts and bruises. No arrests were made and Brown and Drake were not present, when cops arrived at the scene after receiving a call between 4 and 5 a.m.
“How u party wit a rich nigga that hate? Lol…. Throwing bottles like girls #shameonya!” Breezy tweeted, seemingly unfazed by the entire incident. “Niggas is pussy! Bottles? It’s nothing! Lol Niggas throwing bottles! Y’all niggaz weak!
“And I’m the singer?” Brown continued in a Twitter rant he later deleted. “Niggas hiding in the bathroom bitch ass niggas! Ok! Niggas standing behind security!!!! Ok! U don’t pay them enough! Niggas throwing bottles! Y’all niggaz weak!”
Although the NYPD wouldn't confirm that Drizzy and Breezy were involved, they did tell XXLMag.com that arrests are still possible.
"It's still under investigation," NYPD spokesperson Sgt. Rodriguez told XXLMag.com. "We're not confirming any names, we're not saying who was involved because nobody has been arrested and we wouldn't give out the victims names. Pending on what the investigation comes up with, there may be arrests, there may not be arrests."
Drake and Chris have long been rumored to have beef over Rihanna, Brown’s ex-girlfriend and Drake’s rumored on-again, off-again muse, at the center of their feud. Meek Mill, who has also been rumored to be attached to Rihanna at one point, weighed in on last night's scuffle with the tweet: "It wasn't me.... (shaggy voice) lol.”
Drizzy is currently on his Club Paradise Tour, having just completed a stop in Holmdel, New Jersey on Tuesday night (June 12), the night before the brawl. The tour features a buzzworthy lineup including Meek, 2 Chainz, Waka Flocka Flame, J. Cole and French Montana. Meanwhile, Brown is prepping for the June 29 release of his upcoming album, Fortune.—Mark Lelinwalla
