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.

Oh stop it. People feel as though they can openly antagonize Chris Brown since "everyone hates him". He's been getting this from numerous celebrities for years. Frank Ocean started the whole fight between him and CB as well. These people think they can do it because no matter who TRULY started the brawls, Chris Brown will always be blamed, whether it was truly his fault or not.

I'll go with over-serving, assuming that's true. Seating them too close together though? That's ridiculous. A business expecting adults to act like adults isn't something they should be liable for. Maybe 'Dreezy' and 'Breezy' need to grow the heck up.

Of course, you are saying Drake was responsible for it all. You WORK FOR that turd, chris brown! You are like the tissue to the turd, that close. What YOU say has absolutely NO credibility.

"I'm f***ing the love of your life"... Drake probably meant it as an insult about Rihanna... Brown probably read it as Drake hitting on him. Which would explain the Frank Ocean fight as well.

Just like dogs, they can't be in the same place without sniffing each other and then fighting. The club should sue them for the disturbance they caused and wrecking the place. That's why I don't like going to places where Blacks are. They don't know how to control themselves.
