Tensions between Chris Brown and Drake allegedly exploded last night in New York where things reportedly got violent.
Five people were injured in the fisticuffs that allegedly started when Chris sent a bottle of wine over to Drake’s table at the WIP nightclub, TMZ reports. It seems Drake did not consider the gesture a friendly one, and he sent the bottle back, which enraged Chris.
Although Chris is known for losing his temper from time to time, it’s Drake who reportedly punched Chris first.
As if fighting isn’t bad enough, it seems Drake took a page out of Evelyn Lozada’s book and struck Chris on the chin with a bottle. The singer posted a photo of his gash on Twitter.
“How u party wit rich n*** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!” Chris tweeted.
The New York Post reports that Chris was taken from the scene by his security, while members of Drake’s entourage whisked him off to the back of the establishment.
"They were on opposite sides of the room, Drake went over to the middle of the club to talk to someone, then words were exchanged with Chris and his entourage," an anonymous source told The Post. "It looked like Drake’s entourage started it. Both Chris and Drake had their own security with them."
It’s not clear whether Drake himself or someone from his entourage actually threw the bottle in Chris’ direction, but "once the bottle was thrown, all hell broke loose and there were more bottles thrown," the source said.
Though Chris has recently recorded music with Rihanna, the former lovers maintain that their relationship has evolved into one that is strictly professional. Of course, that doesn’t mean that Chris has forgotten about rumors that Rihanna cheated on him with the Young Money star.
Chris’ tweets have since been removed from his Twitter timeline. Drake and Rihanna have yet to comment on the situation.
Workers at the venue clean up the mess left by Chris’ and Drake’s crews.
