Artists sued over nightclub brawl

Chris Brown and Drake are being sued over a bottle-throwing nightclub brawl involving their entourages, as a company with ties to the club in New York sought to hold the music stars responsible for the melee.

Representatives for R&B singer Chris and rapper Drake had no immediate comment about the 16 million-dollar (£10.2m) lawsuit, which blames the artists for at best doing nothing to stop the June 14 incident and claims it sullied the chic Manhattan nightspot's name.

Chris and Drake should bear blame for a glass-flinging, bottle-swinging free-for-all in a crowded club "in circumvention of the venue's extensive security measures", says the lawsuit, filed by Entertainment Enterprises. The company owns the trademark for Greenhouse; the owners of the club itself are not involved in the lawsuit and declined to comment.

No criminal charges have been filed in the fight, which left Chris, basketball star Tony Parker and others injured.

Police say the fracas started after members of Drake's entourage confronted Chris on the dance floor as he was leaving the club's basement lounge. Drake's representatives have said he was on his way out and did not injure anyone.

The lawsuit, however, points to news accounts of bad blood between Chris and Drake, both of whom have dated singer Rihanna. Entertainment Enterprises believes the two men instigated, encouraged, or at least failed to stop the fight, lawyer Andrew Miltenberg said.

"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," he said.

Because of publicity about the fight, a four million-dollar (£2.5m) deal to license Greenhouse's name for other clubs around the country fell through, the lawsuit says.
