Breezy is still working on that public image. This ruling should help him relax.



Chris Brown actually got some good news in a courtroom for once, because a lawsuit against Breezy and Drake after their entourages battled it out last summer has been tossed out. Well, it's not good news for the nightclub that was suing them, but not everyone can be a winner.

Entertainment Enterprises, the company that owns the Greenhouse nightclub in New York, was suing Brown and Drake for $16 million after their posses started throwing bottles at each other last June. If you'll recall, the fight actually took place at the W.i.P. club next door, but Greenhouse claims it lost business because of the fight.

A judge threw out the suit back in May, the New York Daily News reports, saying the men weren't culpable in the incident, since they weren't even on Greenhouse property. "Unfortunately, brawls in bars and night clubs are commonplace. In fact, they have occurred in the past in Greenhouse," Supreme Court Justice Anil Singh told lawyers for Breezy and Drake that month (the decision only became public Monday, it seems).

Greenhouse will still be spending time in the courtroom, though; They lost their liquor license but a court gave them an alternative penalty of a 30-day suspension and $10,000 fine, which they are now fighting. New rule: Don't go to clubs in SoHo. Not if you're dating Rihanna, anyway.
