Chris Brown and Drake may not be on speaking terms, but it doesn’t mean they can’t be jointly sued… Entertainment Enterprises LTD., the company that owns WIP nightclub, where their bottle incident went down, has filed a lawsuit against the two equating nearly $16 million dollars. The suit itself alludes to Chris and Drake‘s altercation occurring in light of a grudge over a woman (Rihanna), and alleges that the two began “to fight violently with each other.”
Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which has a financial stake in the NYC venue where the brawl went down, claims in the suit that both stars “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman.” In case you were vacationing under a rock … it’s Rihanna. EEL claims in the suit — obtained by the New York Post — when Drake and Brown crossed paths, they “began to fight violently with each other.” “Each arrived with his own small army of bodyguards, ‘security’ personnel, employees, friends, and other members of their entourage consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat.”
After the incident, WIP immediately lost their liquor license, and not up to two weeks later was shut down, indefinitely, due to an unrelated incident… Without a doubt I believe WIP is owed punitive damages, for whatever was broken and whomever was hurt, but $16 million seems a little excessive, especially after they were shut down for something unrelated, don’t you think?
