Drake, Chris Brown sued again over NYC club brawl

A model who was injured during a bottle-throwing nightclub brawl between Chris Brown and Drake sued both singers and the owners of the New York City nightclub on Monday.

Romain Julien, who was sitting at a nearby table during the brawl, suffered a severed tendon in his right hand during the June 14 melee, according to a lawsuit filed in New York Supreme Court. Julien also alleged that he endured lacerations from broken glass, cosmetic deformity and mental distress as a result of the fight.

The complaint accused Brown of having a “hot temper” and inciting the altercation with Drake.

The operators of the club Greenhouse and its basement lounge, W.i.P., are also named in the suit. Julien claimed the operators created a public nuisance by failing to provide adequate security in the club and serving liquor to intoxicated patrons.

Julien, a model with Re:Quest Model Management, is seeking actual and punitive damages. Representatives for Brown and Drake had no immediate comment. READ FULL STORY

Drake and Chris Brown sued for club brawl

Chris Brown and Drake were sued Wednesday over a bottle-throwing nightclub brawl involving their entourages, as a company with ties to the club sought to hold the music stars responsible for the melee.

Brown’s representatives had no immediate comment about the $16 million lawsuit, and Drake’s representatives didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The suit faulted the artists for — at a minimum — doing nothing to stop the June 14 melee and said it sullied the chic Manhattan nightspot’s name.

Brown and Drake should bear blame for a glass-flinging, broken-bottle-swinging free-for-all in a crowded club “in circumvention of the venue’s extensive security measures,” says the lawsuit, filed by Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. The company owns the trademark for Greenhouse; the owners of the club itself aren’t involved in the lawsuit and declined to comment. READ FULL STORY

Drake releases his Aaliyah collaboration 'Enough Said': Hear it here

Drake’s been promising it for some time now, and yesterday, he finally delivered: his collaboration with the late R&B great Aaliyah.

The low-key track, titled “Enough Said” and produced by Drizzy pal Noah “40″ Shebib, features never-before-heard vocals from Aaliyah, 11 years after her death. Take a listen below:

Album Sales: Frank Ocean sells 131,000 copies of 'Channel Orange,' but Zac Brown Band tops chart

Following Frank Ocean’s very personal admission on his Tumblr and a high-profile performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last week, Def Jam released his major-label debut Channel Orange a week early on July 10 as an iTunes exclusive.

While that move may have angered Target, which is protesting the early digital release by not carrying the physical album (discs officially hit retailers yesterday), Ocean probably isn’t too worried about it. Channel Orange sold an impressive 131,000 copies (3,000 of which were actually CDs) in its first week. As Billboard notes, his sales are  in line with recent R&B/hip-hop debuts from Usher (Looking 4 Myself, 128,000) and Chris Brown (Fortune, 135,000).

Some of the initial interest undoubtedly comes from Ocean’s  recent revelation that his first love was a man, but reviews — including EW’s — have largely been enthusiastic, and have little to do with his expressed sexuality.

Still, Channel was no sales match for Georgia’s Zac Brown Band, whose third studio album Uncaged topped the Billboard 200 with 234,000 copies. READ FULL STORY

Album sales: Chris Brown's 'Fortune' outperforms discounted competition

Chris Brown has definitely found fame in many senses (not all desirable), and now the R&B crooner can add to his fortune.

After months of too-soon hype, false starts, and one epic bottle-throwing fight, the controversial Breezy saw his fifth album Fortune land at the No. 1 spot of this week’s Billboard charts (not exactly a breezy(!) ride to the top).

The new Brown album sold 134,000 copies in its first week, a significant drop from the 270,000 in debut-week sales of his previous album, last year’s F.A.M.E. While Fortune outsold the other non-Frank Ocean R&B contender of the season — Usher’s Looking 4 Myself (which sold 128,000 in its first week) — it should be noted that the alleged bottle tosser Brown competed mainly against a flurry of older albums that Amazon was dispensing at 99 cents a pop — a price so unusually cheap, Music Mix couldn’t even locate the proper “cent” symbol on the keyboard.

Chris Brown isn't retiring, but still doesn't like Drake

Chris Brown certainly has a hard time getting people to understand him, doesn’t he?

His new release Fortune hits store shelves tomorrow, and while accepting his BET Award for Best Male R&B on last night’s telecast, C. Breezy confused a few people by alluding to the fact that it might be his final entry.

“My last album that’s coming out in two days … I just want to thank all my fans. It’s dedicated to y’all. This one’s for y’all, man, I appreciate everything.”

But according to his reps, Brown merely misspoke and has no plans on bailing out of the music business.

Apparently, he also has no intentions of stepping away from the beef business either. READ FULL STORY

Police suspected of selling bruised Rihanna photo won't face charges

Two Los Angeles police officers won’t face criminal charges alleging they leaked a photo of pop star Rihanna’s bruised and beaten face after she was assaulted by singer Chris Brown, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said. An internal report by prosecutors says that after a three-year investigation, they didn’t have enough evidence to show celebrity news website TMZ paid the accused officers for the photo, and that became an obstacle in charging them.

The Associated Press report obtained a copy of the March 28 report on Thursday after its contents were first reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Officers Blanca Lopez and Rebecca Reyes may still get fired. They are slated to appear before disciplinary panels in August. READ FULL STORY

Hoopster Tony Parker sues club for injury suffered in Chris Brown/Drake melee

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing a New York City club and its operators for $20 million over a scratched retina he says he suffered during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage. The suit was filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Thursday. It says the W.i.P club in SoHo and its operators were negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to take place.

Chris Brown, his girlfriend, and his bodyguard were among eight injured during the fight inside the club last week. Police say members of Drake’s entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The fight escalated and bottles were thrown.

There was no answer at phone numbers listed as affiliated with those named in the lawsuit.

Police say Drake not facing arrest in bar brawl case, despite reports

Despite reports to the contrary, singer Drake is not facing arrest stemming from a Wednesday night brawl at a New York City night club, EW confirms with the NYPD.

“There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing,” the NYPD told EW via phone, adding that reports about Drake currently being pursued are inaccurate.

The rumor mill continues to churn this afternoon, several days after the singer was present at a night club fight that resulted in Chris Brown being cut in the face. A statement from Drake’s camp later claimed he did not take part in the altercation.

Chris Brown's camp has reportedly given NYPD 'physical evidence' implicating Drake in bar fight

The bottle-throwing fight heard ’round the world is still raging on.

Last we left the back-and-forth over how and why (and if) Chris Brown and Drake got into a 4 a.m. bar brawl that resulted in Brown getting cut in the face, we’d been told by sources that A) Drake was not involved in the fight and B) Meek Mill was involved in the fight.

But twist! TMZ reports that Brown’s lawyer has apparently presented the NYPD with “physical evidence” which allegedly shows Drake was involved in the melee (also known in the rap world as snitching), while Brown himself spoke with detectives. He is being treated as “a witness and a victim,” cops told TMZ.

Drake’s camp is cooperating with police as well, but they’ve remained largely silent since releasing their Drake-absolving statement yesterday.
