Temper tantrums never go unpunished... or at least they shouldn't!
Chris Brown and Drake were sued Wednesday over a nightclub brawl that erupted between the two R&B star's entourages back in June at Greenhouse in NYC. Entertainment Enterprises, the company with ties to the swanky establishment, wants them to be held responsible for the incident, which left multiple people injured and spurred a series of lawsuits, including a $20 million claim from NBA star Tony Parker.
Although Brown and Drake were not directly involved in the bottle-throwing chaos, Entertainment Enterprises believes they are at fault for doing nothing to stop the confrontation, which they believe was started over pop singer Rihanna. "It's their posse, and they're in charge, and to the extent that they could have controlled or dissipated whatever was going on, we don't believe they did," explained lawyer Andrew T. Miltenberg.
Both Brown and Drake's reps had no comment on the $16 million lawsuit, which cites bad publicity as cause for a lost $4 million deal to license the Greenhouse name, in addition to other lost wages, pricey lawsuits, and a potential nixed liquor license.
