Chris and Drake are co-defendants in lawsuit filed by a company associated with the nightclub the two brawled over Rihanna in back in June, according to a new report! Read on for the details.
The June 14 bar brawl between Chris Brown, Drake, and their entourages at joint nightclubs Greenhouse WiP is still creating drama in both the music stars lives. A lawsuit has just been filed by Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which has a financial stake in the club, that names Chris and Drake as co-defendants!
According to the New York Post, EEL claims that Chris, 23, and Drake, 25, “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman.” (That would be Rihanna.) The suit further claims that when the two crossed paths, they “began to fight violently with each other.”
The suit says that, “Each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards, ‘security’ personnel, employees, friends and other members of their entourage consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat,” claiming that Chris and Drake ordered their entourages to brawl. The suit also claims that the pair “fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture,” according to the report.
EEL owns the trademark on the Greenhouse name outside of New York, and it had a $4 million deal to license the name in place before bad publicity from the fight ended the deal. The company does not include any current owners of Greenhouse and WiP. The suit asks for $16 million in damages.
A source close to the incident tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the lawsuit is “completely frivolous.”
The owners of Greenhouse and WiP issued this statement to us: “The owners of Greenhouse and WIP in NYC are not plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed earlier today. We continue our proceedings at the NY State Liquor Authority in relation to the incident and will have no comment on this lawsuit.”
Do you think that Chris and Drake should be sued, HollywoodLifers?
