Breezy has placed the blame squarely on Drake for Thursday morning’s nightclub brawl at W.i.P.
Chris Brown’s lawyer is telling it all! His client has provided the necessary evidence to prove Drake started the fight:
Drake drew first blood.
A witness told the Daily News that the rapper with a jones for Rihanna started the bloody fracas at a Manhattan club that injured eight by hurling a bottle of booze at his rival, R&B singer Chris Brown.
And Brown’s lawyer says he gave the NYPD proof that Drake started the whole thing.
“Drake threw the bottle at Brown, but it missed him and hit his bodyguard,” Kenneth McCray told The News on Friday. “It looked like it was Drake that started throwing bottles.”
McCray, an aspiring director and musician who performs as K-Mac, said he was just a few feet away when Drake’s posse then began bombarding Brown and his crew with bottles at the SoHo nightspot.
“After Drake’s crew threw a few bottles the other side started returning bottles,” said McCray, 23, of the Bronx.
“It was crazy. Some of the bottles were already full. They were like bombs. People were running and screaming.”
K-Mac said he could also see Drake throwing punches.
“I saw Drake swinging,” he said. “But I couldn’t tell if he hit Brown or his bodyguard.”
McCray’s account echoed what Brown told cops about how he was attacked while partying with girlfriend Karrueche Tran and bodyguard Big Pat, the singer’s lawyer said.
“I turned over evidence that clearly demonstrates that it is Drake who instigated all of this,” high-powered lawyer Mark Geragos said. “I think it’s clear that the cops view Chris, Pat and Karrueche as victims.”
McCray said Brown was covered in blood and “in a rage” when he emerged from the club.
“It was like a switch flipped,” he said. Brown “began screaming at Drake, ‘You f—— b—-, you hit me with a bottle!’ ”
Brown needed “numerous” stitches to close the wound on his chin, Geragos said. His gal pal had a concussion and his bodyguard’s head wound required 18 stitches.
Drake’s rep insisted in a statement the hip-hop star “did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind.” The rapper has not been questioned by police or charged with a crime.
Meanwhile Rihanna, the sexy singer Team Brown and Team Drake were fighting over, was spotted living it up Thursday night at another nightclub with some girlfriends and celebrity pals. She was partying at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club with musical heavyweights Trey Songz, DJ Clue and Ne-Yo. New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle was also hanging out.
SMH this is just a hot mess. Do y’all think Breezy will catch flack for talking to cops — or was it simply time the truth be told? Or is this a last ditch effort to save his struggling career?
In the meantime there have been all kinds of conflicting reports over whether or not Drake will be arrested. And it’s looking like the answer for now is no.
Hit the flip for the details.
