Even if celebrities are used to spending thousands of dollars on a night out, Chris Brown and Drake are looking at a $16 million bar tab. Chris Brown and Drake are being sued for their bottle-throwing club brawl earlier this year.
Back in June, there’s been a lot of drama around the Chris Brown and Drake nightclub brawl. It involved entourages, bottle-throwing and likely the most stupid reason to start a fight: a woman. In a few words, the Chris Brown and Drake club fight was the kind of stuff that would make ‘80s rappers smile with indulgence.
Over the past few weeks, the media left the Chris Brown – Drake scandal to rest. But the club that got ravaged during their little argument didn’t. The New York Post obtained the lawsuit filed by Entertainment Enterprises LTD. against the two musicians. The company owns the trademark of the club’s name, Greenhouse.
The company wants Chris Brown and Drake to pay $16 million in damages, following their violent brawl over a shared “grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman” aka Rihanna. The lawsuit justifies the $16 million damages to be enough for the musicians’ “gross negligence”, “ultrahazardous activity” and “intentional illegal acts”.
The suit reads that the nightclub staff checked to make sure none of the two entourages would be carrying weapons of any kind inside. According to Entertainment Enterprises, both Chris Brown’s and Drake’s entourages had “at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat”.
Apparently both Chris Brown and Drake ordered their “security personnel, bodyguards, friends and entourage to join the fight”, thus it was just a matter of moments before everything “erupted into a violent brawl on a massive scale”.
During the club brawl, participants made “deadly weapons” using Greenhouse property and threw “highball glasses laden with alcohol, shattering the handles of bottles of spirits to use as makeshift knives and even throwing full bottles at each other”.
“Within seconds, defendants filled an already packed nightclub full of flying glass shrapnel” reads the lawsuit, putting everybody else in danger. Some even suffered injuries, including NBA star Tony Parker who is suing the club for $20 million.
