Chris Brown and Drake Controversy Continues: Serious Investigation Underway
Chris Brown or Drake, who’s telling the truth?
The bottles have stopped flying, but the effects of the brawl between singer Chris Brown and rapper Drake are far from being over. The fallout continues, as the NYPD investigates what really went down early Thursday morning at after-hours club W.i.P in Soho.
The melee between Chris Brown, Drake and their respective posses has spawned so many rumors that it’s nearly impossible to get to the real truth behind what started the fight. However, the New York City cops are trying to sift through evidence and testimonies from those present at the time.
Witnesses had claimed that Brown instigated the fight by sending a $2,000 bottle of Ace of Spades champagne to Drake’s table. Drake allegedly sent a note back saying, “I am f**cking the love of your life,” referring to singer Rihanna.
Brown’s managers denied this in a tweet: “There was no bottle sent to @drake and there was no note! Stop the lies, TMZ/MTO!!!! There were no punches thrown, just glass.”
Whatever started the altercation resulted in bottles flying all over the club, leaving at least eight people injured, including Brown, his girlfriend Karreuche Tran, NBA superstar Tony Parker, Brown’s bodyguard Big Pat and model Ingrid Gutierrez, who may need plastic surgery for the facial cuts she suffered from a flying bottle. Parker escaped with just a minor eye injury.
The NYPD had hoped to find out what really went down by viewing surveillance video from the club’s cameras, but the footage proved to be too dark to be of any help.
According to a report from TMZ, one of the men in Brown’s entourage at the club was throwing gang signs and yelling death threats at Drake’s table. The unidentified man allegedly yelled, “Somebody’s gonna die” and “F**k you, we’re gonna kill you n*gga” at Drake’s friend Meek Mill.
If the man is indeed a member of a gang, that could be big trouble for Brown, since the terms of his probation (Yes, he’s still on probation from the Rihanna incident) forbid him from associating with known gang members.
There could also be more regulations coming for NYC nightclubs. The NY City Council has called an emergency meeting with the NYPD and nightclub owners in regard to policies on bottle service.
According to City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn, “The purpose of this meeting is to send a clear message to all nightclub patrons that bottles cannot be used as weapons and to determine if the guidelines surrounding bottle service need to be updated or reworked.”
That could mean that the patrons of NYC’s hottest nightspots will soon be drinking their champagne from plastic cups.
