Drake is denying claims by DJ Whoo Kid that Chris Brown elbowed him in the face.

As previously reported, Whoo Kid told UK radio personality Tim Westwood last week that Drake caught a bow to the head courtesy of R&B star Chris Brown, for what the G-Unit DJ believed was in regards to Drizzy being involved with Breezy’s ex, Rihanna.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, the Toronto-native said that incident never happened.

“I respect Chris Brown,” he said. “I’d like to call myself a friend—I don’t know if I’m allowed to do that,” said Drake. “But I definitely didn’t get elbowed in my face. Somebody would’ve got knocked the fuck out.”

Drake’s new album, Take Care, which features a song with RiRi (the title track), hit stores today. —Elan Mancini
