It was all good until the club owners allegedly lost $4 million as a result…
While at one time only knowing the Billboard charts as the site of their battles, fans were stunned to read R&B stageblazer Chris Brown and ‘Headlines’ hitmaker Drake rocking headlines earlier this year when the two (and their camps) were engaged in some level of brawl at a bar.
With the two constantly making (Twitter, spoken) jabs at each other in the incident’s following week, it seems the final hit may come from the bar where the incident occurred as the two are being jointly sued for their antic.
Find out the whopping figure the bar owners are seeking below and why they allege, as previously rumored, the fight was over ‘Man Down’ diva Rihanna:
“…Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. claims Drake and Brown started the scuffle at the joint clubs Greenhouse and WiP on June 14 and then ordered their crews to follow suit.
…claims in its suit that both stars “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman,” meaning mutual ex Rihanna.
The suit explains…Each ordered his security personnel, bodyguards, friends and entourage to join the fight, which erupted into a violent brawl on a massive scale.”
…In addition to the damaged property, the suit mentions the emotional and physical damage sustained by several of the club’s patrons, which included NBA star Tony Parker, who is suing Greenhouse and WiP for $20 million as a result.
EEL seeks $16 million in damages for Drake and Brown’s “gross negligence,” “ultrahazardous activity” and “intentional illegal acts.”
And, this my friends, is only guaranteed to get messier. We at That Grape Juice would not be surprised if any of the accused parties do not counter-sue or file suit against each other to mitigate impending financial/commercial injuries. None of the bad press is doing any of the involved any favors, even those not present.
Furthermore, the inclusion (subliminally or indirectly) of Rihanna’s name in the incident does not exactly have a place here if it cannot be conclusively proven. Seems to be just another way to make the occurrence look that much sillier and the club (and owners) that much more the victim.
Le sigh. Either way, here’s hoping this aging incident blows over and quickly as the beef is getting staler by every mention…
