Drake, Chris Brown Brawl: W.i.P. Nightclub Denies Blame Following Tony Parker Lawsuit
Following a $20 million lawsuit from NBA star Tony Parker, reps for the W.i.P. nightclub are denying culpability in the infamous brawl that broke out earlier this month between Drake and Chris Brown's entourages, TMZ reports. Parker suffered eye injuries when he was hit by glass from a broken bottle, and he blames the New York City nightspot for admitting the rival performers and pumping their posses with with alcohol, setting the stage for violence.
A rep for W.i.P. tells TMZ that Parker's accusations have no merit, since there was no reason to believe Breezy and Drizzy would come to blows.
"Chris Brown and Drake are not Biggie and Tupac," the source told the gossip site.
W.i.P. supposedly had 15 security guards on hand when the melee broke out, and reps insist they did everything in their power to keep things from getting out of hand.
As Contact Music reports, Parker underwent surgery last week in France to repair a lacerated cornea. The Belgian-born baller is concerned the injury could negatively impact his playing career, both with the San Antonio Spurs and the French national team, which he's slated to play for later this summer at the Olympics.
