New York City’s W.i.P. is about to be renamed ‘fight club’ after its latest trend of brawls that have been erupting from the venue.
Fights that occurred almost a year ago are still coming back to haunt the club and threaten to take it down. On July 15th 2011, Chris Brown walked into the club and Drake shortly followed inside. Not long after they were both seated and started enjoying a few drinks, a note was sent to Drake. It was allegedly from Chris Brown, which stated “I am f—king the love of your life.”
There were a number of injuries from the flying bottles and fists that came from the brawl and many came forward but the blame was never clearly established as to who started the fight. Ultimately, the blame ended up landing on the club itself. The state Liquor Authority filed 14 charges against the nightclub Friday morning, ‘seven of which included other fights, noise violations and two drug-related incidents,’ as stated by the New York Post. The club is now in danger of losing their liquor license but that could be the least of their problems.
Besides the charges that were filed, a suit was also filed by Tony Parker on Thursday, a club attendee at the time of the fight. The lawsuit states that the club should have known better than to let the two singers in the club at the same time. Had they not allowed at least one of them to enter, the fight would have never taken place. Parker is looking to collect $20 million if the lawsuit goes through. The suit does not include Brown or Drake.
