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

Kanye West isn’t the only rapper who can boast about graduation.

In a new interview with Canadian magazine Now, Drake revealed what his summer calendar will look like once he’s done throwing his hometown of Toronto a new music festival, OVO Fest.

“I’m actually spending my summer graduating high school,” he said, hopefully while one-strapping his Jansport backpack and frantically rustling through his Trapper Keeper. (Music Mix sat alone at the cafeteria.)

“I only have one credit left,” Drake added. “I’m really excited about that.”

And we are too! After all, we all basically went to high school with him for so many years.

Ever since his 2006 breakout single “Hustlin'” put him on the map as a player in modern rap music, Miami’s Rick Ross has slowly built up an empire.

Rihanna, Drake lead 2012 VMA nominations with five each, Lady Gaga snubbed

It’s the year of Rihanna and Drake at the MTV VMA awards.

The two-time collaborators (and on-and-off exes) lead all nominees with five a piece, including Video of the Year.  And for added drama, they’ll both be competing against Chris Brown in separate categories; Rihanna goes head-to-head with Brown for Best Choreography and Drake faces Brown for Best Male Video wearing one of his famous Drake shirts. (Rihanna is also featured guest in Drake’s heavily nominated “Take Care” as well as Coldplay’s “Princess of China,” which has two nominations.)

Runner-up Katy Perry earned four nods, while The Throne’s Jay-Z and Kanye, Beyoncé, Coldplay, M.I.A. and Frank Ocean all walked away with three.

Left off the list entirely? Last year’s pseudo-host Lady Gaga — even though both her “Marry the Night” and “Yoü and I” videos were eligible.

This year’s ceremony will take place on Sept. 6 at the Staples Center in L.A. See the full list of 2012 VMA nominees after the jump:

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

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.
