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.

Did Chris Brown and Rihanna hook up this week, behind his GF Karrueche Tran's back and just days after he was injured in a brawl with Drake's crew?

Reports surfaced earlier today that Chris, who's supposedly pined for Rihanna ever since ... well, you know, had finally won the "S&M" singer back.

The two recording artists had a secret hotel rendezvous ... allegedly.

Rihanna and Chris Brown: Did they reunite? Will they?

“Chris snuck in through the side door at the Ganesvort Hotel super late at night and went to Rihanna’s room,” said a source near said NYC hotel.

“They’re seeing each other. She’s just as obsessed with him.”

Hollyscoop, however, debunks any rumor of their hookup.

“Completely not true,” a rep for Chris told the site. “As we have said many, many times before, he is very happy with his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran."

For now, at least, it looks like there was no tryst, and the only involvement Rihanna and her ex have is her role in the Chris Brown-Drake fight.

Everybody hear about that? It was insane!

Lil Wayne is getting in the middle of Drake's beef with Chris Brown, though his goal is to end it amicably so all parties involved can keep making cash money.

Weezy and his peeps at Young Money, which reps Drake, have been quietly urging him to do what he can to put the feud to bed because it's bad for the biz.

Yes ... as violent and hardcore as the rap game cis, there is such a thing as bad PR, and Lil Wayne senses that stemming from the Chris Brown-Drake fight.

Sources say Drake has gotten calls from Weezy, Birdman, Mack Maine and others at Young Money, urging the rapper to extend an olive branch to Brown.

Since Brown appears on several tracks with YM members, they feel it's best to let bygones be bygones after the fight that got W.i.P. nightclub shut down.

Drake doesn't want to reach out to Chris, however, until he knows CB doesn't blame him for the melee that led to serious injuries and property damage.

Brown's lawyer has been saying that Drake was one of the aggressors, which the Canadian rapper denies, as does Meek Mill, the other rapper involved.

Lil Wayne has made it clear he's on Drake's side no matter what, but "making money matters most" and the bottom line trumps any personal grudge.

When Lil Wayne is the voice of reason, you know $h!t is outta hand.

Instigator or not, Drake best take heed, even if - to borrow one of our favorite Weeds quotes - thug means never having to say you're sorry.

Drake's homie Meek Mill says he didn't throw any bottles during the W.i.P. club brawl that got the venue shut down and injured Chris Brown last week.

Meek says Chris didn't throw any either, and denies there is any lingering beef with the R&B singer or his camp. Mill told XXL (dot) com the following:

"Chris and Drake, them two was there, but it's other people that be around that take sh!t to the next level ... Things just happen in the club."

Meek Mill Picture

"I seen girls in there throwing bottles, all types of sh!t. All types of people. I never seen Chris Brown or Drake throw a bottle and I was there.”

Asked if he threw a bottle at Brown, Meek replied, "F*%k no."

Mill, who was hanging at Drake's table during the June 13 incident, was rumored to be an instigator in the fight (and to have banged Rihanna).

Meek claims, at least, that he spoke with Chris Brown on the phone after the brawl and both sides agreed they had no problem with the other. 

Mill concluded his frank assessment of the melee by saying, "Chris Brown be in clubs. He be around situations like this. Things get out of hand."

"That don’t mean it’s out of hand with me and him or him and Drake.”

Good to know. For his part, Drake spoke about the brawl himself during his concert at Jones Beach on Long Island Saturday night ... kind of.

Police are still investigating. As always we gotta ask ...

With some cryptic remarks at his concert Saturday night, Drake broke his silence about his alleged involvement in a violent bar brawl with Chris Brown last week.

Days after the brawl left several people injured, caused massive property damage and got W.i.P. nightclub shut down, many unanswered questions remain.

Drake cleared up none of them at Jones Beach in Long Island, N.Y., but he did appear to allude to the bottle-bashing melee between his crew and Brown's.

According to the N.Y. Daily News, Drake told the crowd:

Drake Live

"When I woke up this morning, I had to think about a lot of things. But the only thing I gave a f--k about was that I was in New York City tonight."

Later during the show, he said, "It's last call and you're really too drunk to give a f--k ... A n---a in the corner is standing there looking at you funny."

"You bump elbows with him on the way to the bathroom, but really there's only one n---a that you got to think about."

So, yeah. There you go. Read into that however you like!

Until this, the rapper has remained largely silent, issuing a statement through his rep last week that denied any involvement in the fracas.

The club was shut down by law enforcement officials, who cited a litany of previous violations that culminated in Thursday's notorious brawl.

Chris Brown was hurt in the brawl, which also injured NBA star Tony Parker, model Lucy Pavlovsky, Chris' bodyguard Big Pat and numerous others.

The nightclub where Chris Brown and Drake threw down has been shut down.

Both W.i.P. and Greenhouse nightclubs - located in the same building and jointly owned in Manhattan - were shuttered on Saturday night by the NYPD.

Is the epic fight that went down between the music stars' camps to blame?

Yes, but indirectly. Previous violations had been reported before the nightclub fight, and police looking into the brawl may have uncovered even more.

Drake and Chris

Details are scarce, but police say it was “closed as a result of several violations in a stipulation agreement made by the owners and the N.Y.P.D.”

Jonathan Cantor, the club's manager, was taken into custody by police on two outstanding warrants stemming from noise complaints at the hot spot.

In case you somehow missed it, Chris Brown and Drake were allegedly involved in a brutal bar brawl early Thursday morning that injured many.

Drake has maintained his innocence in the matter and has denied any participation in the violent altercation. Brown has since contacted the police.

A rep for W.i.P. and Greenhouse tells E! News that "the venues are temporarily, not permanently, closed." Temporarily for awhile, it sounds like.

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.

Whose side are you on?

If Rihanna didn't feel like she was the only girl in the world before this week, the violent nightclub altercation between Chris Brown and Drake - or at least their entourages - certainly could be seen as an ego boost ... or just scary.

She is, of course, Brown's ex and Drake's friend, collaborator, and rumored hookup.

For her part, she was at a different club, with Brown, earlier in the week, but Rih was nowhere to be found at W.I.P. when things got ugly Wednesday.

  • Rihanna Topless Twit Pic
  • Cutie in Black

She heard about it, though, says a source who claims Rihanna "loves this! Men fighting over her? Are you kidding? Of course she loves the drama."

After a deluge of texts telling her what went down, "She just laughed. She's spoken to both of them and just thinks it's crazy. She's glad she wasn't there!"

"She just wants to be friends with both of them."

Clearly they have different ideas. Brown tweeted a pic of a serious gash on his chin after a member of Drake's posse allegedly hit him with a bottle.

Drake has denied "any wrongdoing" through his rep, but Brown and his attorney have pointed the finger at the Canadian rapper and his entourage.

A member of Brown's posse may have been the primary aggressor, however, as reports suggest he was making gang signs and death threats at Drake.

Neither musician is considered a criminal suspect in the incident, FYI.

UPDATE, 6/16: Brown's camp wants to clear the air about one thing.

The R&B star's management, Phase Too Inc., shot down reports that Brown sent a $2,000 bottle of champagne to Drake's table ... a gesture that purportedly prompted him to send back a note to Chris reading, "I am f--king the love of your life."

Phase Too called BS in a Tweet: "There was no bottle sent to @drake and there was no note! Stop the lies, TMZ/MTO!!!! There were no punches thrown, just glass!"

Rihanna hasn't taken a side ... but you can!

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.
