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.

by mr. stricklands standard, writing a note to someone entitles them to attack you with glass bottles? no wonder chris brown is ****ed in the head...he surrounds himself with people who excuse his childish behavior. and it isn't the clubs responsibility to keep two childish celebrities apart...they can't be expected to keep a record of who every celebrity is and isn't fighting with...the patrons are expected to act like they have just an ounce of common sense.

I don't see how the club is to blame for sitting them close together. Is it the clubs duty today and be up to date on trashy tabloid stories? What are they, little kids? Well, actually they have the mentality of little kids.

So the bodyguard is suing because he was bodyguarding (his job with the understood likelihood of violence) and got hurt. Just hunting for $$$.

You have got to be on the verge of being an animal if you decide throwing bottles in a fight is a good idea. Chris Brown and Drake are idiots, yet some people keep buying their crap and keeping them around. (Brown is MUCH worse, Drake is just a poser)

Isn't that asshat CB supposed to be out doing community service or some ish, instead of hanging around nightclubs and getting into fights? What a loser.
