Chris Brown and Drake are involved in another brawl ... this time legally.

They're suing one another over their nightclub fight last year, when the music stars and their posses got into an all-out MELEE at W.i.P. nightclub in NYC.

How does that work, exactly? Well, a French model named Romain Julien is filing suit against Brown, Drake and the club for injuries he says he sustained.

In response, both Drake and Chris Brown have filed legal documents basically denying blame for what happened and pointing the guilty finger at the other.

YOLO. It's not just an overused phrase by wannabe cool kids anymore.

Drake, who is often credited with popularizing the shortened, acronym version of "You only live once," hinted Tuesday that he wants a cut of these profits.

Specifically, the Canadian rapper called out Macy's and Walgreens.

The 26-year-old rapper posted an Instagram shot of several "YOLO" hats for sale, writing, "Walgreens... you gotta either chill or cut the cheque."

Somehow, we doubt the cheque is in the mail.

W.i.P. nightclub feels Tony Parker's lawsuit against them is baseless and that there is no way they could have predicted the melee that went down.

NBA star Parker filed a $20 million lawsuit this week, claiming the club is responsible for the Chris Brown-Drake fight in which he was injured.

Parker sustained a scratched retina from shards of glass flying after Brown, Drake, Meek Mill and threw down, requiring eye surgery as a result.

Tony says it's obvious "there was bad blood between Drake and Brown" (allegedly over Rihanna) and that W.i.P. staff should have known better.

Moreover, he says they fueled matters by selling their posses alcohol.

But sources close to the club, which has been shuttered, say Drake and Chris Brown are not prone to violence ... at least not toward other dudes.

The club feels the fight was out of its control, and as for the alleged bad blood, a source said, "Chris Brown and Drake are not Biggie and Tupac."

Parker also suggested that the club was way understaffed, which W.i.P. refutes, saying that 15 security guards were working the night in question.

So far, no charges have been filed related to the brawl, though the club was closed indefinitely and the case is still under investigation by the NYPD.

San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker is suing the Manhattan nightclub where a fight between Chris Brown and Drake broke out and led to mass chaos.

Why? Because the NBA star suffered a scratched retina when glass bottles and shards started flying during the melee, according to news reports.

The baller, who is expected to be fine in time for the Olympics but must wear a patch on the eye for several weeks, seeks $20 million in damages.

New York officials shut down W.i.P. nightclub in the aftermath.

Parker claims that the club nearly cost him his career by properly secure and oversee the premises in the lead-up to the violent brawl between Chris Brown, Drake, Meek Mill and entourages/security guys/friends of all three music stars.

Parker's lawsuit is not the first, nor the last to result from the night gone awry, in which numerous injuries were reported, some of them serious.

Drake alluded to the dustup during a concert in Long Island last weekend, while Meek Mill denies that there was any bad blood between any of them.

Drake's Young Money boss, Lil Wayne, is reportedly trying to help smooth things over as soon as possible. Yes ... Lil Wayne is the mediator.

Drake is solely to blame for inflaming the violent NYC club melee that injured innocent people, according to model Vladimira Brace, one of those allegedly hurt.

Brace claims she suffered a spinal injury when she was trampled in the mob scene that ensued inside the now-shut down W.i.P. nightclub in Manhattan.

Brace's attorney has threatened him with a lawsuit, writing Drake's reps that point blank, "Your client instigated a brawl with Mr. Chris Brown" on June 13.

"[Drake's] actions were negligent in inflaming a violent mob," the letter adds.

"My client personally observed several members of [Drake's] entourage throwing bottles of champagne with reckless and criminal disregard."

The attorney also cites Drake's "well documented history of vulgar, abusive and profane remarks concerning women," which his camp denies.

People close to the Canadian rapper claim that he didn't instigate anything, and was there with a couple of security guys and that's it. No entourage.

They say both Chris Brown and Meek Mill were with large posses, but not Drake. As for D's alleged abuse of women, they find that claim absurd for two reasons:

  1. It's not true.
  2. Chris Brown.

At least three other women - and NBA star Tony Parker and Chris' bodyguard Big Pat - have also claimed they were injured in the Chris Brown-Drake fight.

A model who claims she required 12 stitches after she was caught up in last week's Chris Brown-Drake fight plans to sue ... possibly both of the musicians.

Javier Solano, a lawyer representing Lucy Pavlovsky, says the model was in the VIP section at W.i.P. Nightclub when the violent fight went down.

He says Lucy ducked down when bottles started flying and didn't notice her arm was gushing blood until she was making her way out of the club.

  • Cutie in Black

Solano says Lucy took a cab to the nearest hospital, and got a total of 12 stitches to close up two cuts on her arm, along with a tetanus shot.

According to Solano, Lucy Pavlovsky was interviewed by NYPD officers on Friday. She is "gathering evidence" for a possible criminal complaint.

Solano says Lucy's lawsuit would be against the club, which was shut down for various violations, but hinted Drake and/or Brown could be included.

"At this moment we are exploring all options," he said. "I can assure you that regardless of fame, money or stature, the people responsible will be held accountable."

Also injured in the fight, allegedly over Rihanna:

  • Chris Brown himself; his chin was gashed.
  • Chris' bodyguard Big Pat, whose head was bashed.
  • San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker, whose eye was cut.
  • Ingrid Gutierrez, a 21-year-old model who was at Brown's table and suffered "bruises, stitches and trauma to her face," according to reports.

Chris Brown is portraying himself as the victim in Wednesday night's fight with Drake and his entourage, but one of Brown's posse members may have been the primary instigator of the violent brawl, according to new reports from witnesses.

The Chris Brown-Drake fight clearly involved major smack talk on both sides, but it was Brown's friend who flashed gang signs and made death threats at Drake's entourage moments before the melee broke out at W.I.P. nightclub, allegedly.

  • The Drake
  • Chris Brown: Fight Time?

Eyewitnesses say that Chris Brown had been hanging out at his VIP table with a posse of 16 guys or so ... one of whom was a man with dreadlocks who was throwing gang signs and screaming at Drake and his entourage.

Witnesses say this man was the primary instigator in the brawl that followed.

Among other verbal taunts, the man yelled out, "Somebody's gonna die!"

The man also lashed out at Drake's friend Meek Mill - the man who allegedly inflicted this gash on Brown - saying "F**k you, we're gonna kill you n!gga."

As the threats were made, Chris reportedly stood up and embraced him.

If the man acted as if he's associated with a gang - regardless of whether he actually is - it could be significant, as Chris' probation bars him from such things.

Seriously. His probation stipulates him from fraternizing with gang members. Says a lot right there, no? Neither he nor Drake are criminal suspects, FYI.

It looks like last night's wild fight between Chris Brown and Drake was, in fact, about the former's ex and the latter's rumored hookup, Rihanna. Imagine that.

Sources also indicate that while Drake's telling the truth when he says he wasn't involved physically in the epic melee that ensued, he definitely stirred the pot.

Drake gave Brown the middle finger, engaged in some serious trash talk, and recruited several other rappers to join his posse before the brawl, witnesses say.

Tension started escalating, supposedly, when Drake gave the middle finger to one of Chris' bodyguards and shouted, "I'm about to go whoop that ass!"

Chris' entourage responded with a few hand gestures of their own.

Witnesses very close to the action say Drake felt disrespected ... even though he started the exchange. At that point the rapper went to get backup.

His boys Juelz Santana, Trav B and Meek Mill - the one who sources say hit Brown with a bottle and gashed his chin - then stepped into the beef.

At this point, the latest report says that Drake got loud and shouted at Chris something to the effect of "You be on that ho s**t on Twitter n***a!" 

That would be an expletive-laden, but clear reference to a recent Twitter war between Chris, Drake, and Meek ... all over who's banging Rihanna.

Raise your hand if you're surprised she played some role in this. Anyone?

Moments later, Chris' security guards became irate, more words were exchanged, pushing and shoving began, a bottle was thrown, and ... yeah.

By all accounts, Drake never got physically involved in the brawl and was about to leave at the time, which he claimed in a statement via his rep.

His middle finger and smack talk clearly played a role in it, however.

One quick question before we turn it over to your comments: Whatever happened ... aren't you almost surprised this hasn't happened before?

Whose side are you on in the Chris Brown-Drake beef?

Drake is adamant that he did not beat up Chris Brown last night, claiming he was in the process of leaving the nightclub when the stars' entourages threw down.

Chris Brown's fight with Drake and his posse at a New York club left him with a gash on his chin (he posted a pic of it on Twitter that he later took down).

He says he was leaving when $h!t went down though. His rep said: "[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”

"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."

Earlier reports indicated, contrarily, that Brown and Drake had been hanging out in the VIP section when Drake began pointing and yelling at Brown.

Brown began yelling back, witnesses say, and that's when members of both entourages rushed in and began shoving each other repeatedly.

With tensions escalating, someone threw a bottle, causing an all-out melee.

It's unclear who threw it, but bedlam erupted and security called the police.

Now, a new witness claims it was a rapper hanging out with Drake, Meek Mill (pictured below), who was screaming at Chris and vice versa, not Drake personally.

Chris Brown got into a fight - with dudes for once - and sustained a nasty gash on his chin last night after he and his entourage brawled with Drake.

Brown Tweeted the picture below, apparently a wound from a bottle attack, and suffered during a scuffle with the rapper and his crew in a club.

NYPD sources confirm that the stars and their camps got into a fight in the Big Apple's WIP nightclub, and five people were injured in the melee.

Including Chris Brown himself. Check it out:

The NYPD arrived on the scene of the throwdown after receiving a call between 4-5 a.m. Chris and Drake were not present when cops arrived.

No critical injuries were reported - just bumps, bruises and lacerations - and no arrests were made by cops. No further investigation is likely.

Brown Tweeted the photo above with the message, "How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol... Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!."

The Tweet and pic have since been removed.

Witnesses say the posses threw words, blows and bottles, and the subject of the beef was none other than Rihanna, Chris' ex and Drake's rumored hookup.

The previous night, Chris and Rihanna were seen at the same club in NYC, with the former reportedly gazing longingly at his former flame.

Whose side are you on in this feud?

 

UPDATE, 12:02 p.m. EDT: Reports say Brown and Drake had been hanging out in the VIP section when Drake began pointing and yelling at Brown.

Brown began yelling back, witnesses say, and that's when members of both entourages rushed in and began shoving each other repeatedly.

With tensions running high, someone threw a bottle, which set the whole thing off. Shoves turned to punches and security called the police.

UPDATE, 1:08 p.m. EDT: Check out this photo taken at the bar after the fight went down. This was apparently a pretty serious brawl!

UPDATE, 3:40 p.m. EDT: Drake's rep has issued a statement denying his role in the fight; a source says Meek Mill was the one who smashed Chris' face.

UPDATE, 4:40 p.m. EDT: Check out this photo of Chris Brown's bodyguard Big Pat, who was hospitalized last night after suffering a huge gash on his head.

The photo shows Big Pat in a hospital gurney with blood gushing all over the place. It's unclear how BP got hurt or who's responsible for the damage:

UPDATE, 5:16 p.m. EDT: New reports indicate that the crazy fight was, in fact, all about Rihanna, and that Drake was not involved ... physically.

It appears that Drake flipped off Chris, talked major trash, then recruited several of his friends at the club in advance of the altercation, however.
