Bottle row for R&B artists Brown and Drake


Chris Brown and Drake are being sued over a bottle-throwing nightclub brawl involving their entourages.

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

Brown 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", according to the lawsuit, filed by Entertainment Enterprises.
