According to TMZ, Vladimira Brace has hired a lawyer and is threatening to sue Drake for suffering a spinal injury in the all-out, bottle-throwing melee.
“Your client instigated a brawl with Mr. Chris Brown…[Drake's] actions were reckless and negligent in inflaming a violent mob,” Brace’s attorney, Allan Friedman, wrote in a letter to Drake’s camp. “My client personally observed several members of [Drake's] entourage throwing bottles of champagne with reckless and criminal disregard of the well-being of the innocent bystanders.”
This news comes after, another female clubgoer, Lucy Pavlovsky, 24, of Hoboken, New Jersey, came forward after suffering two gashes on her arm in the bottle-throwing crossfire.
“My plan is to sue anybody who threw a bottle, anybody who created that dangerous atmosphere,” Pavlovsky’s lawyer, Javier Solano, told the New York Daily News on Sunday (June 17).
There was also a 24-year-old female Australian tourist who needed stitches on her forehead after being hit with a bottle.
“It is regrettable that apparently many innocent young women have been severely injured by this incident,” Friedman said.
According to reports, Drake ignited the brawl with a controversial note he sent to Brown and words exchanged between the two camps spilled over into a large melee, which also included the entourage of Meek Mill.
Brown left W.i.P. with a nasty gash on his chin, his bodyguard, Big Pat, sported a nastier gash across his forehead and NBA star Tony Parker suffered an eye injury due to a shard of glass from the numerous broken bottles. Meek Mill reportedly hit Brown with a bottle.
Just yesterday (June 18), however, XXLMag.com exclusively reported that Meek Mill denied ever hitting Brown with a bottle and claimed that he and the R&B singer spoke right after the incident.
The MMG rhyme slinger also claimed that he seen women throw bottles—not Drake nor Brown.
“Chris and Drake, them two was there but its other people that be around that take shit to the next level,” Meek exclusively told XXL. “Things just happen in the club. I seen girls in there throwing bottles, all types of shit. All types of people. I never seen Chris Brown or Drake throw a bottle and I was there.”
No arrests have been made, as the New York Police Department is still investigating the incident.—Mark Lelinwalla
