Drake started the blowout NYC nightclub brawl last summer with Chris Brown ... by sending Brown a handwritten note that read "I'm f***ing the love of your life" -- this according to Chris Brown's bodyguard.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by the NY Daily News, Patrick Strickland -- whose head was badly bloodied during the flying bottle attacks -- is suing Drake and W.i.P. nightclub, where the brawl took place last June.

Strickland says Drake's note -- a clear reference to Rihanna -- started a verbal altercation, which then led to the all-out melee in which several people were badly injured ... including Strickland and several other clubgoers.

According to Strickland, the club is also responsible for over-serving Dreezy -- and seating him way too close to Chris ... in light of their public beef over RiRi.

He's suing for unspecified damages.

Why sue the club? If these jerks can't control themselves, it is up to the club to babysit them? I don't think so. They should have been arrested on the spot and held for damages to the club and the people injured in the fight.

LOL. Yeah right. Uhm no, see that's not grounds to sue ANYONE. Someone wrote a note that was offensive. Yeah? AND? So freakin what? If you didn't have a bunch of thugs acting like escaped labratory chimps running around fighting each other in public, no one would have been hurt and the first glass wouldn't have been broken. It doesn't matter who passed what note to whom. If the note contained the worst insults known to man. Chris Brown or anyone for that matter needed to ball it up and toss it in the trash and not pay it any mind. So all if takes is a little note to get someone to tear up a club? No. I don't think so. Whoever threw the first punch is the one who started it. And that's what the law says. It doesn't matter if Drake stood in front of Chris Brown and pulled out a poster of Rihanna and started masterbating to it right then and there. It doesn't matter what's said or read. If Chris Brown wants to get up and physically assault someone, then that's where the crime begain. It's not a crime to mock someone after a bad break up. It's rude. It's not a crime. It's not a crime to pass along a insulting note either. That falls under freedom of speech. And if you really want to get into this childish game of who started it. If Chris Brown hadn't beat the crap out of Rihanna to begin with, he wouldn't have gotten dumped in the first place, to BE mocked with a note. So there.

Every one of these thug brats out there acting like this needs to be put in jail to they walk a straight line. Apparently their Mamas didn't do a good enough job diciplining these boys. They need some hard time in a correctional facility.
