Chris Brown


Before Brawl with Drake

6/15/2012 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a photo of Chris Brown inside a NYC nightclub, taken seconds before he got clocked with a champagne bottle in a brawl with Drake's posse -- and he looks totally oblivious to the violence about to erupt.

In the photo, Chris is shirtless and holding a bottle of Ace of Spades champagne … surrounded by fans, friends -- and his bodyguard, Big Pat, who ended up hospitalized with a massive gash to his forehead after the brawl broke out in W.i.P. Nightclub early Thursday.

According to several eyewitnesses, Drake and Chris had been jawing at each other leading up to the brawl -- still, Chris doesn't look the least bit concerned in the photo.

We also obtained pics of Drake -- taken minutes earlier -- and rapper Juelz Santana is already standing next to him. We're told Juelz, Meek Mill, and Trav B all stepped up for Drake … and eventually tussled with Chris and his crew.

As TMZ first reported, NYPD officers have spoken to Chris, Drake and their attorneys. Neither has been named a suspect in the beatdown.

Last night, Rihanna hit the club scene in NYC -- but when she was asked about the Drake vs. Chris Brown brawl ... she bobbed and weaved like a prize fighter.

I never knew Chris Brown had such wimpy arms and ginormous hands. It looks photoshopped. Then again, so does RiRi's huge tweety bird forehead.

He looks ****kky and smug and is probably somewhat drunk. I can't stand him. Stop with all the blow by blow details.

It's amazing how people are so butt- hurt about the happened between CB and Rihanna all those years ago when you guys don't even know them personally at all but everybody holding grudges ridiculous. Obviously Rihanna don't give a **** about how CB acts or DRAKE because she ****ed them both so why the **** are we here gathered in the masses spewing hate and applauding bodily harm LIKE SERIOUSLY?????? Everyone is against CB because he's ****y, violent and a bully, but yet everybody on this thread embodies the same traits. You got people calling others names who don't agree them about hating CB, threatening people with bodily harm, assaulting people's IQ, racist comments etc. I think the messed up people is everyone here in these comments who try to be famous themselves by being the most ignorant and hostile to people with conflicting opinions.

this kid is seriously such a little bitch it's funny. He's a little scrawny boy, an r&b singer trying to convince everyone he's a hard rapper. He was a scrawny kid so he got a bunch of tattoos to cover up how small he is so now he thinks he looks tough. The only people he can beat up are women because he'd piss his pants if he had to fight a man. He'll prob do what he can to get Drake arrested because he's a bitch like that.

And Drake is wheelchair Jimmy from a Disney show!!! A black, Canadian jew!

Can these 2 please stop acting like they're hard and ghetto. Tupac and Biggie are rolling in their graves right now that THIS is the big beef in hip hop going on right now? Give me a break. You're both soft. You're both being played by a whore. Go take your money and be an ******* in your own privacy and don't be inconsiderate innocent people who don't care or aren't impressed by your level of douchebag.

What the hell kind of Manhattan nightclub is this? Whatever happened to "no shirt, no shoes, no service?" All these little punks are thugged up, pathetic. I guess Chris is looking for a little girl to get in a fight with.
