The story surrounding the highly publicized brawl that took place at W.i.P. and Greenhouse nightclubs between Drake and Chris Brown has reached a new development. A company with close ties to the venue is suing the musicians for $16 million, holding both of them responsible for the June 14th fight.
The company, Entertainment Enterprises Ltd, owns the trade for Greenhouse and their suit is against Drake and Chris Brown solely. The owners of the clubs are not named in the lawsuit and had no comment on the filing of the suit. According to filings in the suit, the company feels the two artists should take blame for the melee "in circumvention of the venue's extensive security measures".
While no criminal charges were filed against neither Drake nor Brown, Entertainment Enterprises believes that neither of them tried to prevent the fight, which resulted from a beef between them. The company's attorney, Andrew T. Miltenberg, made a statement regarding the matter.
"It's their posse, and they're in charge, and to the extent that they could have controlled or dissipated whatever was going on, we don't believe they did."
While the owners of the clubs have been excluded from the $16 million, they face a separate $20 million suit from NBA superstar Tony Parker who was in attendance the night of the brawl and says that he suffered an eye injury.
