Rapper Drake is expected to be arrested and charged with reckless endangerment after a VIP-room fight with singer Chris Brown. The melee occurred at the popular New York City hotspot W.i.P in the SoHo neighborhood. According the New York Post, witnesses interviewed do not believe Drake hit anyone with a beer bottle as accused, but the 25-year-old star was ordered to surrender to law enforcement officers by early next week. If Drake does not agree to turn himself in for questioning he may be arrested before tonight’s Jones Beach concert.
TMZ reports that former Rihanna love-interest enraged Brown when he sent a note to his table which read, “I am f—ing the love of your life.” Before the note was delivered to Brown’s table by a waitress, he sent an expensive bottle of champagne MTV reports. Media representatives for the entertainers will be working overtime this weekend to sort out all of the finger pointing accusations between the pair of men who are apparently still both sweet on Rihanna. Drake’s representatives told the media that Brown was the instigator and a member of his “entourage” made “offensive” statements.
The New York Post also notes that comments may have included statements about rapper Meek Mill and that Brown’s “posse” includes Crips gang members. If Brown was hanging with street gang members it would be a violation of the probation terms levied after the 2009 attack on Rihanna. Drake’s attorneys are investigating the identities of the people sitting with Brown before the brawl occurred.
Brown’s attorney is also preparing to vigorously defend his client and alleged in the New York Post that “Drake and his thugs” are the subject of a police investigation and a case is building against the rapper. Brown’s attorney also told the media that local law enforcement officers have evidence that Drake threw “glassware” at his client. Witnesses to the Drake vs. Brown fight are still being interviewed, it is possible that shots were fired injuring five patrons.
Rihanna was not present during the brawl between the singer and rapper but was seen the next evening out on the town with her gal pals.
