Every once in a while, a girl beater decides to tango with someone his own size…and gets the snot kicked out of him.
But Chris Brown could probably tell you more about that.
The R&B crooner took a bottle to the chin on Wednesday night after a run-in with teen actor-turned-hip-hopster Drake and members of his entourage at a New York nightclub. At the center of the dramah, spywitnesses say, is both men’s fixation with Bajan beauty Rihanna.
Rihanna has enjoyed an on-again/off-again romance with Drake — her “Take Care” duet partner — for more than a year. But the songbird prompted whispers that she was secretly seeing Chris after the pair released a pair of sexually-charged duets, including one on RiRi’s hit single “Birthday Cake,” back in February.
It was the first time the pair had collaborated since Brown was arrested and charged with brutally beating Rihanna during a Grammy day argument in Los Angeles three years ago. Controversy from fans and critics alike soon ensued.
Fast forward to Wednesday night. If The Sun has its story right: Brown sent Drake a bottle of champagne as a peace offering, but Drake returned the bottle along this rather insulting blurb:
“I’m f**king the love of your life. Deal with it…”
Yeah…that didn’t go over very well.
An incensed Chris confronted Drake, who threw a punch. Before Brown could retaliate, Drake’s friend hit him with a bottle.
Brown tweeted a photo of a nasty gash to his face, accompanied by the eloquently penned messages:
“How u party wit rich n****s that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!”
He later removed the post, but not before news of the fight went viral.
Local cops received a call about the melee between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. and dispatched several units to the hotspot. Chris and Drake were not on the scene when police arrived and no arrests were made.
Five people were injured, none critical.
