Chris Brown injured in bar fight with Drake's entourage over Rihanna
Chris Brown suffered an embarrassing beatdown at a trendy SoHo club this morning when he and his entourage traded flying bottles and blows with pals of fellow rapper Drake.
Published reports say the fight was over Brown's ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown tweeted a photo of himself left with a bloody, nasty gash on his chin, following the battle at SoHo club WIP.
The photo came with Brown’s tweet: "How u party with rich n---- that hate? Lol....Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!"
Chris Brown tweeted, and later deleted, a photo of his injured face.
Both the photo and the message have since been removed
A source with ties to WIP told The Post, "Drake's entourage got into a brawl with Chris Brown's entourage, and Chris Brown got hit in the face with a bottle."
The battle started after Brown sent a bottle over to Drake, but the Canadian artist didn't take the gesture kindly, according to Russell Simmons’ hip-hop blog Global Grind
Drake approached Brown, and they allegedly began arguing about Rihanna, according to the Simmons site.
That’s when Drake allegedly threw the first two blows at Brown, once in the face and then again with a bottle to his mouth, the blog reported.
Hot 97 quoted witnesses that bottles were flying all over the club and “all hell broke loose.”
A Drake spokeswoman said the two entourages got into a tussle, but she couldn’t say if her client threw any punches.
"It was his entourage [involved],” Drake’s rep Kelly Bush said. “It's unclear if he [Drake] was there. I'm still trying to find out."
Rihanna briefly dated Drake after breaking up with Brown three years ago. The “Run It” singer beat up Rihanna after they attended a pre-Grammys party on Feb. 8, 2009.

NYPD officers arrived at the club on Varick Street after receiving a call after 4 a.m. that five people were injured, authorities said.
The brawl broke out in the club’s basement, where a hip-hop party had been going on for hours, witnesses said told The Post.
Revelers said Brown was at the bash, but he was long gone by the time officers showed up. Drake was also not at the scene when police got there, sources said.
As reported by The Post, Brown and Rihanna have recently started been getting closer again.
They’ve been spotted partying with their entourages at New York clubs including SL and Avenue. Brown joined Rihanna and her family to watch the Miami Heat game at Jay-Z's 40/40 on Saturday.
