Chris Brown and Drake are suing each other after they brawled in a nightclub.
The two rappers and their entourages ended up scrapping in New York’s W.i.P club in June, a fight that was said to be over Rihanna. During the brawl, which involved thrown bottles and Drake landing a punch on his rival. A number of innocent bystanders were hurt.
One of those bystanders was Romain Julien, a French model who has now filed lawsuits against both Brown and Drake for his injuries. With both performers facing lawsuits, the pair are now attempting to sue each other.
It’s likely any damages won by Julien will have to be paid by the man the court deems responsible for the fight. According to TMZ, Brown and Drake both deny responsibility.
At the time, it was reported the fisticuffs began when Brown, who remains on probation for beating up Rihanna in 2009, sent a bottle of champagne to Drake’s table. However, the drink was returned by Drake along with a note that read:
“I’m f***ing the love of your life, deal with it.”
That led to Brown squaring up to Drake, and it wasn’t long before several members of each rapper’s entourage became involved.
Since the nightclub fight, there hasn’t been much in the way of a truce. Brown has released a freestyle diss of Drake, who has been busy fighting a lawsuit brought against him by a nightclub in the same building as W.i.P. Meanwhile, one Las Vegas promoter has even made the men a big-money offer to settle matters in the ring.
Is it okay to want both parties in a lawsuit to lose?
