Chris Brown, Drake in Bloody Bar Fight Over Rihanna
Chris Brown took a bloody hit to the chin in a bar fight with Drake that reportedly revolved around the rappers' relationships with Rihanna. Fellow rapper Meek Mill may also have been involved.
At least five people were hurt in the brawl that involved punches and bottles being thrown in the basement of a trendy club in Manhattan early Thursday, the New York Post reports.
The brawl apparently began when Brown sent a bottle over to Drake's table, a gesture that was not well received, according to Russell Simmons' hip-hop blog Global Grind.
Drake "went face to face in the club with Chris [Brown] and began arguing about Rihanna," Global Grind reports. "Some believe Meek Mill may have instigated the fight." Mill was reportedly hanging out with Drake at the club.
As the argument escalated, Drake allegedly punched Chris Brown in the face and struck him across the chin with a bottle, Global Grind reports. A full-on brawl then broke out between members of the rappers' posses.
By the time police showed up between 4 and 5 a.m., Chris Brown, Drake, and Meek Mill had apparently already left the club, according to MTV. No one was arrested, but members of both rappers' posses could possibly be charged with assault and battery if there's enough evidence.
But is there any evidence? Will police pursue any charges?
Chris Brown could conceivably file a police report against Drake for the alleged bottle to the chin, or pursue a civil lawsuit. But as with other celebrities, he may just continue the feud on Twitter.
"Bottles? It's nothing!" Chris Brown said in a tweet after the fight, accompanied by a photo of a bloody gash on his chin. "Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!"
Chris Brown's photo and tweet have since been deleted, Global Grind reports. Neither Drake nor Meek Mill have commented about the alleged bar fight over Rihanna.
