Brawl victims at Chris Brown, Drake fight sue nightclub
Two women who claim were injured during the brawl of Chris Brown and Drake have filed a lawsuit against the nightclub where the melee occurred, arguing that the brawl would not have happened if the club had not been over-serving people who were already severely intoxicated.
According to the lawsuit obtained by media outlet TMZ, Lucy Pavlovsky and Nadia Beddini claim they suffered permanent injuries in the bottle-smashing fight between Chris Brown and Drake inside the W.i.P nightclub in New York City on June 14. Pavlovsky and Beddini claim they suffered damage to their face, head, neck, body and extremities.
The media outlet obtained photos of Lucy who was accidentally involved in the Chris Brown and Drake fight, showing ugly lacerations to her arm which required stitches.
The lawsuit against W.i.P nightclub, which was filed in state court in New York City by attorney Javier Solano, states that the bottle-throwers were “sold and consumed alcohol in excessive amounts” even after they appeared heavily intoxicated.
The lawsuit also added that the nightclub failed to train properly the bouncers to handle such violent situation, as what happened during the Chris Brown and Drake brawl. Also, Pavlovsky and Beddini are suing the people who threw bottles, but since their identities are unknown as of the moment, they have listed the culprit as John Does one through five. However, neither Chris Brown nor Drake are named in the lawsuit.
The two injured women are suing W.i.P nightclub for unspecified damages.
A rep for the nightclub told TMZ, “We work hard to provide a safe environment. If an accident or injury occurs we try to respond appropriately. We will review the claims in this lawsuit and address them in court.”
