Nicki Minaj has involved herself in the row between Chris Brown and Drake by claiming that she "doesn't approve" of their controversial feud.

The pair had been involved in a alleged nightclub brawl earlier this month, after it was alleged that upon discovering they were in the same club, Brown sent a bottle over to Drake's table. The Toronto rapper then approached Brown and started arguing over Rihanna, Brown's ex-girlfriend who Drake also had a short relationship with.

Speaking to Tim Westwood on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Minaj revealed that, although she thought Drake was innocent in the incident, he still needed to be careful of his reputation.

She said:

I don't approve of talented people doing things that aren't conducive to an amazing career. I spoke to Drake, and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt. I'm like, 'Baby, you are a superstar, and I need you to realise that.'


Minaj, who reportedly had a highly-publicized scuffle with her former maid in November 2011 which led to the police being called to her home, added: "He did nothing wrong, of course. Rumours are rumours, and that's what it is. Sometimes, you just need to go to bed. Go to the hotel and have an early nap. There's nothing wrong with that."

Earlier this week, Brown and Drake were offered $1 million (£641,000) each to fight in a celebrity boxing match. Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman has revealed that billionaire digital media entrepreneur Alki David wants to capitalise by staging a fight between the pair, stating: "Obviously they have a grudge. It's just three one-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt."

Mark Geragos, Chris Brown's attorney, has previously claimed that he has evidence that Drake threw a bottle during the incident, while Brown posted a picture of his gashed chin on Twitter after the fracas along with a tirade of messages directed at Drake's crew – although they have since been removed.

Drake, however, has denied his involvement in the fight, and said he was heading for the exits when the brawl broke out. A spokesman for the rapper said: "Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.I.P. He was on his way out when the altercation began."

Drake returns to the UK next month to headline Wireless Festival.
