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.
