Chris Brown injured in fight with Drake's entourage
Chris Brown and Drake have had beef in the past and now police are investigating a bar fight between the hip hop stars and their entourages, which left five people injured.
Brown Tweeted a photo of himself with a gash in his chin and the caption, "How u party wit [sic] rich [expletive] that hate? Lol... Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!"
The Tweet and several other posts about the fight, including taunts, have since been deleted from the short-tempered singer's Twitter page.
According to the Associated Press, New York City police are investigating the bar brawl, which occurred on Thursday night at the club W.i.P (Work in Progress). Of the injuries, one young man suffered a serious cut to the head, two men and two women suffered minor cuts and at least three people were hospitalized.
Police are using surveillance footage and eyewitness accounts to investigate. No arrests or complaints have been filed.
Drake and Brown had both left the scene when police arrived at 4 a.m. on Thursday. It is unclear what started the fight, though both musicians have both dated Rihanna in the past.
Drake's rep denied that his client was present when the fight broke out and told OnTheRedCarpet.com, "Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property."
Brown's rep told OnTheRedCarpet.com on June 14, "Chris, Karrueche and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at WIP. They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further."
Brown assaulted Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time, after a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009. He pleaded guilty to a felony charge was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service and was ordered by the courts to receive domestic violence courses for a year.
Shortly after Rihanna's breakup with Brown, the singer dated Drake. Drake also appeared in her music video for "What's My Name," while she collaborated with him on his hit, "Take Care." Drake, who played Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian teen drama series "Degrassi: The Next Generation" and Rihanna have not confirmed a relationship.
Brown remains on probation for the felony assault, if he gets arrested in connection with the fight, it could constitute a violation of the terms of his probation. In order to determine whether it is a violation, the LA prosecutors would have to request a probation violation hearing. Even if Brown doesn't get charged but is arrested, it could characterize a violation of probation and land the singer in jail.
