Twitter was abuzz this morning with details emarging a of a huge brawl between Chris Brown, Drake, Meek Millz and their entourages at W.I.P last night. The kicker is the fight is allegedly over Rihanna. Here is what I pieced together from various sources.
Media Takeout Reports
Brown tried to bury the hatchet by sending a bottle of champagne to Drake’s table at New York’s WIP nightclub, but the bottle was promptly returned with a message that read “I’m f*cking the love of your life [Rihanna], deal with it,” or something along those lines.
According to various twitter reports this lead to a physical altercation around 4AM once Drake left the bathroom. Then Meek Millz jumped in. Then their entourages all started brawling and throwing bottles. Incredible this all happened with the lights on and the music still going.
@lpavlovs who was there and injured by what appears to be flying shards of glass tweeted me the following about her experience.
I genuinely don’t know. I was so panicked I thought I was in the middle of a shoot out bc there were loud noises.
The dr couldn’t tell if my laceration was due to a broken glass bottle or a stray bullet so he gave mea tetanus shot to be safe.
If I were her I would consider filing a lawsuit against both of these rappers. They beligerantly endangered the lives of innocent party goers over a girl. Really? Chris Brown of all people you would think should know better.
What does this mean for the future of WIP? It’s less than a year old and it’s already experiencing some of the kind of incedents that has scared people off from Greenhouse and got Juliet shut down. You can’t blame the staff there, how could they possibly have forseen a bunch of celebrities brawling. It’s sad because its a cool concept and space. We’ll see if they can rebound.
There is no room for this in nightlife. Everyone need to just chill out and have a good time. No need for altercations, especially over a girl.
Drake is adamant … he is not responsible for the bloody gash on Chris Brown‘s face … claiming he was simply leaving the nightclub when the brawl broke out … but sources tell us, the fight started after Chris Brown and a rapper at Drake’s table started trash talking each other.
The rapper hanging with Drake — Meek Mill — was screaming at Chris and Chris was giving it right back to Meek Mill. One of Chris’ lieutenants was also involved in the screaming match.
