Chris Brown

TOPLESS BALLIN'

Before Brawl with Drake

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Please! Please! Stop this! None of this is funny! Truce it up! There is no pride when you're dead! Life is already too short! All of that talent and what? We really need to get it together. Come on Chris and Drake, search deep. You are off of your own path. Let's find our way back. You can do it....

All bs aside, really guys? What is it going to take to stop this? Was that your goals? Don't let these fools hype all of this up. I am pulling for Chris but he needs to do some thinking for himself. He know that these perfect people are not going to let him breathe. This is a young man with anger issues, but why does the public feel that it's ok to keep pounding this young man to death? Evidently RiRi likes it rough! Not that it's ok, but come on, there are some females that get turned on with bruises. Am I wrong? They (CB & RiRi) are a disastrous pair, but they are grown. Moral: Chris had made more mistakes, just not the RiRi "abuse" mistake. Give this young man a break!! RiRi is not so innocent, check the stats! Just sayin. I like RIRI also, but let's keep it real...
