Chris Brown has posted a photo of his injured face following the fight in New York City
Chris Brown and Drake have been involved in a serious fight at a New York nightclub after a falling out over Rihanna, it’s being reported.
Brown posted a photo of the facial injury he sustained after allegedly being bottled during the bust-up at the Soho club, W.i.P.
With the pic, he fumed: ‘Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya! N****s in the bathroom b***h a** n****s’.
It’s thought the incident kicked off after Brown, 23, tried to make a friendly gesture to Drake by sending a bottle of champagne over to his table, but the ‘peace offering’ was allegedly returned with a note that read: ‘I’m f****** the love of your life, deal with it.’
Clearly livid at the reference to ex-girlfriend Rihanna, Brown then reportedly confronted Drake.
A source told the New York Post: ‘They were on opposite sides of the room, Drake went over to the middle of the club to talk to someone, then words were exchanged with Chris and his entourage.
‘Once the bottle was thrown, all hell broke loose and there were more bottles thrown.’
It’s been confirmed by the New York Police Department that there was a fight at the Manhattan club and that five people were injured.
About the incident, Brown’s spokesperson said: ”Chris, Karrueche (Brown’s girlfriend) and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at WIP. They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further.’
While Drake’s representatives have denied he was involved at all.
In a statement, they said that the 25-year-old singer ‘did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He 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.’
Chris Brown and Rihanna broke up in 2009 after he assaulted her as they drove home from an awards ceremony.
