Drake & Chris Brown

VICTORIOUS in $16 Million

Nightclub Brawl Lawsuit

and Drake now have something else in common besides Rihanna -- a New York judge just ruled they don't owe a CENT to a nightclub they brawled next to last summer, TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Brown and Drake were sued for $16 million by Entertainment Enterprises, the company behind Greenhouse nightclub in NYC.

Greenhouse is adjacent to W.i.P nightclub -- where Chris and Drake's entourages got into a massive bottle-throwing brawl last June -- and EE said their reputation took a massive hit following the ordeal because of its proximity to Greenhouse. EE said the brawl cost them a lot of money.

Drake responded to the lawsuit, saying it wasn't his problem -- because he can't control how the media reported the incident -- and this week, the judge in the case took his side.

The judge said Drake and Chris had no duty to the club to behave -- especially because their brawl didn't even occur on Greenhouse's premises --  and while nightclub brawls are unfortunate, they're not uncommon ... which means EE can't just sue whenever a fight happens.

The lawsuit was tossed out.

Everyone should stay out of all night clubs actually. Nothing good ever happens in them. You have a good chance of getting hurt, dying or getting drunk and maybe killing someone else. Stay home and get drunk. It's cheaper.

I wish the losers at TMZ would police their comment section more thoroughly seeing as how there are a tremendous amount of spammers blowing up the comments.

As for the nightclub, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh well.

I guess this means these thugs can get in another bar fight. Though I wouldn't consider Drake a thugs, he more a wannabe thug.

Omigosh!    

16mil is way too much but id say 1-5mil they should have won - im from NY and the place did get trashed like trashed! and a bad rep after this fight - clubs in ny do make obscene amount of $$$ - more than other cities/states. it wasn't a regular bar/club fight - both had an entourage and large paid security - many club goers reg people got hurt. beyond any club owner or security/insurance could have PREDICTED/ANTICIPATED - : my 2cents.
