Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. (EEL) are the owners on record for the club where the bloody brawl broke out that allegedly began over words said about pop star Rihanna. The suit states that both men apparently “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationship with the same woman (Rihanna).”
EEL goes on to claim in the court document that when Drake and Brown crossed paths they “began to fight violently with each other.” But according to published sources, neither Drake nor Brown laid a hand on each another.
The suit continues to allege that each of the A-listers arrived at the club with muscle-bound security personnel, employees, friends, and an entourage of at least 15 people, some of whom appeared to be “experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat.”
The nightclub battle resulted in Brown getting a sizable gash to his chin that required stitches. There were also other serious injuries that required hospitalization. Two women who were innocent bystanders during the bottle-bashing battle suffered permanent injuries and are suing the nightclub owners.
The fight also caused extensive damages to the club and it was temporarily shut down by the New York Police Department. The New York State Liquor Authority took away the club’s license to serve alcohol for a stint. he club reopened on July 10th with increased security.
NBA San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker, who was also at the club when the fight occurred, was injured when shards of glass hit his eye. The injury resulted in corneal damage.
He is suing the nightclub for a reported $20 million.
