Drake and Chris Brown are being charged for $16 million (£10.2 million) per night by the owners of the Greenhouse and WiP nightclub over their recent nasty fight in NYC.
Rapper-singers are named defendants in a lawsuit filed by Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. who owns the brand to the Greenhouse name. The two singers are sued with $16 million suit for gross negligence, ultra hazardous activity and intentional illegal acts over their fight at the joint clubs Greenhouse nightclub owner John Bakhshi.
According to the sources, Drake and Brown had their relevant security teams throw highball glasses laden with alcohol at the venue and charged their entourages of breaking the handles of bottles of spirits to use as makeshift knives. The suit was filed in Manhattan Civil Supreme Court on Tuesday morning (August 14) by Entertainment Enterprises.
Bahkshi claims that an agreement which allowed him to license the Greenhouse name nationally was due to close earlier to the incident, but fell through after the hip-hop artists’ outburst. He admitted in his court filing that the Greenhouse marks were now associated with the kind of aggressive, life-threatening riot engaged in by Brown and Drake, and that they were now worthless.
On the other hand, Brown and Drake rep’s have not yet made comment. The event between the stars was alleged to have initiated over a quarrel about their respective relationships with Rihanna. Quite a few customers, who were injured in the fight, including NBA star Tony Parker, are at present suing the club for negligence.
