Just when you thought Chris Brown and Drake’s infamous brawl was a thing of the past, things are heating up again for the warring artists, now that the nightclub where their bloody, bottle-throwing battle occurred is suing them for $16 million

The New York Post released details from the suit, in which Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which has a financial stake in NYC’s  joint clubs Greenhouse and WiP, claim that Drake and Brown started the fight and then had their crews follow suit, causing a devastating brawl that injured several people and damaged property.

EEL claims that  both men “shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman,” their mutual former flame Rihanna, and when they crossed paths, they “began to fight violently with each other.”

The suit goes on to claim that Drake and Brown “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.”

Once the fight began, Drake and Brown allegedly had their entourage join them, and
their friends “fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture, thereby circumventing the nightclubs’ extensive efforts to ensure a safe environment.”

The club has now been sued for $20 million by NBA star Tony Park, who was injured in the brawl, and is facing other lawsuits and legal problems, including a failed $4 million dollar deal involving EEL.

EEL and its club are now suing Drake and Brown for damages for their “gross negligence,” “ultrahazardous activity” and “intentional illegal acts.”

However, sources involved in the situation have told TMZ that neither Brown nor Drak,e hit each other during the brawl.

Well, it looks like neither Drake nor Brown are coming out of this legal drama unscathed. But, they’re not the only stars that have faced heavy legal drama. Check out some other famous lawsuits below. – nicholas robinson
