Claiming his innocence, Drake's rep has released a statement saying that the hitmaker is not responsible for the bloody gash on Chris Brown's chin following a brawl at a New York City nightclub on Wednesday (June 13).
Although the "Motto" singer claims he was on his way out of the bar when the fight started, sources tell TMZ, "The fight started after Chris Brown and a rapper at Drake's table started trash talking each other."
Apparently, Drake's rapper friend, Meek Mill, started yelling at Brown causing the 23-year-old and one of his lieutenants to dish the screaming right back.
Sources for TMZ did not want to reveal what the two were arguing about, but confirmed it had nothing to do with Rihanna and that Meek Mill hit Chris with a bottle, tearing off a chunk of his skin.
As for Drake's rep's statement, it read: "Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. [Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property."
A short while later, Brown chimed in via his spokesperson, telling: ”Chris, Karrueche [Tran] and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at WIP. They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further.”
