Brown, Drake may have brawled

TMZ reports that the R&B singer’s crew clashed with rapper Drake and his boys at New York’s WIP nightclub early Thursday morning. Five people were injured in the melee, including Brown, who apparently suffered an ugly wound to his chin. The singer posted a photo of his war wound to Twitter, saying: “How u party wit rich n---- that hate? Lol... Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!”

The tweet and photo have since been removed from Brown’s feed, but the NYPD is investigating the incident. None of the injuries were critical, and no one was arrested.

So what happened? The web is buzzing with rumors. Global Grind, a hip-hop blog run by Russell Simmons, says Brown sent a bottle over to Drake, who then approached Brown, and the two began arguing about — you guessed it — Rihanna, with whom both men have been involved in the past. The blog alleges that Drake thre the first two blows, including a bottle to the mouth. Drake’s spokeswoman, Kelly Bush, told the New York Post that the two entourages did get into a rumble, but “It’s unclear if he (Drake) was there. I’m still trying to find out.”

Various reports online say rapper Meek Mill was also involved in the incident. “It wasn’t me,” Mill tweeted Thursday morning.
