Rapper Drake is asking a U.S. judge to dismiss a lawsuit blaming him for a nightclub’s bad press following his infamous brawl with Chris Brown.
The two stars’ entourages clashed during a night out at New York City’s W.i.P. in June and the fracas is believed to have erupted after the rival artists exchanged words over R&B beauty Rihanna, who was romantically linked to Drake following her 2009 split from Brown.
Chiefs at Entertainment Enterprises, Ltd., who own a large stake in Greenhouse, a club located in the same building, later filed a $16 million lawsuit against the pair, alleging their reputation was ruined by the media fallout, according to TMZ.com.
But the the Best I Ever Had hitmaker, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, has now fired back in new legal documents, claiming Greenhouse had its liquor licence once suspended due to a “string of violent incidents” and was also described by editors at the New York Times as having “a history of violence and other problems” before the fight.
