We love how Rihanna wasn’t even there when the epic nightclub battle between Chris Brown and Drake went down in June, yet she allegedly still gets mentioned in the lawsuit served to both artists by WiP nightclub. According to the suit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, the club claims that Chris and Drake “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationship with the same woman,” which lead them to “fight violently with each other” on June 14. Now, we understand Rihanna (or some other mysterious unnamed woman) might be a big part of why Chris and Drake strongly dislike each other, but why eight people ended up hurt in the fight…yeah, RiRi has nothing to do with that. Tony Parker, who is currently suing the club for $20 million after receiving a scratched retina in the fight, would probably agree.
And it probably didn’t help things that both Chris and Drake arrived to WiP with what seems like their own militia. According to the suit, both performers “each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards, ‘security’ personnel, employees, friends and other members of their entourage, consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat.” The club claims it’s owed $16 million for Chris and Drake’s “gross negligence,” “ultrahazardous activity” and “intentional illegal acts.” Our question is, which of those translates into “foolishness combined with the drink combined with a reckless disregard for people’s retinas”? Yeah, you’re right. It’s all of them.
