Chris Brown and Drake are facing another lawsuit stemming from their brawl in a New York City nightclub in June.
Male model Romain Julien is suing both singers and the owners of the W.i.P. club for cosmetic deformity and mental distress and is seeking actual and punitive damages. Julien suffered a severed tendon in his right hand from broken glass while he was sitting at a nearby table.
The suit also claims that the operators of the club created a public nuisance because they did not provide adequate security and served liquor to intoxicated patrons.
The June 14 fight between the two’s entourages was allegedly started after Drake and Brown exchanged words about Rihanna, whom both have dated. Representatives for Drake said that the rapper had already left the club when the melee started.
This isn’t the first lawsuit filed as a result of the brawl. A company that owns the trademark to the club hit the entertainers with a $16 million lawsuit last week, stating that they did nothing to stop the fight and in turn sullied the nightclub’s name.
There were no criminal charges filed due to the fight, but it did leave several injured, including San Antonio Spurs player Tony Parker.
