Drake And Chris Brown Sued For $16 Million Over Club Brawl

No surprise here.  The fight between Drake and Chris Brown will most likely end up costing them a few MILLIONS.

The company which owns the W.i.P nightclub and its sister nightclub, Greenhouse where the artists violent altercation took place in June, is suing both artists for $16 million, reports Huffington Post.  The lawsuit claims that Drizzy and Breezy’s fight has not only ruined the reputation of the club, but it has derailed a $4 million deal to expand its brand.

The suit, filed in Manhattan Civil Supreme Court on Tuesday August 14, alleges that the two artists “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman (that would be Rihanna)” When Brown and Drake “crossed paths,” they “began to fight violently with each other,” the suit says.

The lawsuit goes on to explain that both parties “arrived with his own small army of bodyguards, ‘security’ personnel, employees, friends and other members of their entourage, consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat.”

The suit also alleges that both parties “fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture.” Many nightclub patrons were “terrorized”, and many who were injured during the brawl have sued the nightclub — including NBA star Tony Parker, whose eye suffered a scratched cornea via a piece of glass.

Before the June 14 incident, Entertainment Enterprises had reached an “agreement-in-principle” with another business to expand the Greenhouse name to clubs across the country. “[The business] was primarily interested in the cachet and prestige associated with the Greenhouse marks,” says the lawsuit. The deal was then called off, as the club was “now associated with the kind of violent, life-threatening riot engaged in by [Brown and Drake], and that they were now worthless.”

Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. is seeking $16 million in damages, citing “gross negligence ultrahazardous activity and “intentional illegal acts.”

Both artist still continue to deny being involved in the bloody brawl.
