There is more drama unfolding from the Chris Brown and Drake bar brawl over pop diva, Rihanna. According to reports, Brown, 23, spoke to detectives from the New York Police Department about the bar fight with Drake, 25, that left him physically injured.
The two music stars allegedly got down and dirty in a bottle-throwing bar brawl at Manhattan’s Club W.I.P. News of the club fight, which took place in the early hours of Thursday, has spread far and wide on social networks.
Chris Brown, after his bout of fisticuffs, took to Twitter to post a close-up photo of his injured chin, allegedly courtesy of Drake. He tweeted : “How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!”
He soon deleted the photograph and tweet, however. More photos from the fight scene were later posted online and show the disastrous scene of the violent brawl.
- NYPD sources say the Jonathan Cantor, manager of the Manhattan hotspot that was the scene of the mad melee over Rihanna, was arrested on Friday. Cantor was charged with minor noise violation and jailed for two outstanding warrants, the NY Daily News reported. Though the charges are unrelated to Thursday’s fracas, police will likely use them as leverage to pry information about the bottle-throwing bar brawl from the manager.
- Chris wasn’t the only victim of assault. Photos posted online following the brawl show Big Pat, Chris Brown’s bodyguard, suffered a serious head injury.
- Drake says he wasn’t involved in the fight. The star rapper released a press statement in the hours after the fight and his reps claim Drake was “on his way out of the club when the altercation began. He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property”.
- A rep for Brown defends the singer saying he is the victim in the situation. “Chris, [girlfriend] Karrueche and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at WIP.” the rep said. “They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further.”
- Last, but certainly not least, it was all caught on camera as clubbers gleefully took in the whole showdown. Check out the video footage below:
