Chris Brown, Drake

Sued in Nightclub Brawl

You Guys Started It

0815_chris_brown_drake_tmzChris Brown and Drake are now a team -- both are defendants in a lawsuit just filed by people connected to the nightclub which was the site of the June 14th, bottle throwing, bloody brawl.

Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which has a financial stake in the NYC venue where the brawl went down, claims in the suit that both stars "shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman." In case you were vacationing under a rock ... it's Rihanna.

EEL claims in the suit -- obtained by the New York Post -- when Drake and Brown crossed paths, they "began to fight violently with each other."

The suit goes on ... "Each 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 lawsuit says both Drake and Chris each ordered their goons to take care of business.

0815_chris_drake_club_01The suit also credits the crews of both Drake and Chris with ingenuity, claiming they "fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture."

The suit asks for $16 million in damages.

I say it's a fair call. They started acting like children, made a mess, got bystanders injured, and expect nothing to happen? LOL go back to fighting over that crack head please.

They should pay with a celebrity boxing match to the end. Or to the first one that screams like a biatch after getting punched in the face.

Hey WIP Club, just curious where your security was during this ghetto browl? Can you really sue a couple of individuals when it was your establishment that had neglectful security?

How could the club provide security if each of these black criminals arrived with 15 colossal bodyguards? this small club would need like an army of 60 security guards. The police should prevent big groups of black people to walk together, especially if they look like bodyguards of a rapper.

My thought here, they can sue. The argument supposedly started with their Entourage, neither of them discourage their group from stopping the banter. Sounds like inciting a riot to me. You can't just stand by when you are the head honcho and say nothing then slip out the back door when it gets out of hand.

Where's the DA office on this case, Chris is on probation, he has violated his probation just being around other felon's and also being around alcohol establishment, and just being in a fight violates his probation?
