W.i.P. nightclub is suing Chris Brown and Drake for $16 million for their alleged bloody bottle throwing fight on June 14th in the Soho nightclub. Entertainment Enterprises Ltd owns W.i.P. nightclub and is seeking $16 million dollars in damages for alleged “gross negligence”, “intentional illegal acts”, and “ultra hazardous activity” by Brown and Drake.
The lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme court says that Brown and Drake fought because they had past relationships with the same woman (Rihanna). Also, it says that each artist had a crew of “at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat.”
According to the suit, the both artists told their crews to fight. The fight left about seven people injured including NBA star Tony Parker. Parker has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the club. Others injured also have filed suits.
Owners of the Greenhouse trademark that shares space with W.i.P. nightclub, claim that they lost a $4 million licensing deal that they’d recently brokered because of the brawl.
Police are still investigating the incident.
