'Chris left that baggage where it happened,' says source closer to singer
Chris Brown has settled his feud with Drake and “has no beef” with his fellow singer, according to sources.
Brown and Drake hit the headlines after taking part in an alleged nightclub brawl in June of this year, with it being reported earlier this month that the pair were facing a $16million (£10.2million) lawsuit for their roles in the fracas.
The suit alleges that Brown and Drake caused the brawl at the Greenhouse nightclub “in circumvention of the venue’s extensive security measures” and should bear all responsibility for the damage caused and for the damage to the club’s reputation.
However, a source told Hollywoodlife.com that as far as Brown was concerned, there was no bad blood between him and the rapper. “That situation has already been handled and Chris [has] no beef,” they said. “Drake who? That club shit was what it was and Chris left that baggage back where it happened.”
They also denied that Brown had chosen not to attend this year’s MTV Video Music Awards because he didn’t want to run into Drake, adding: “None of what’s going on with the VMAs is because of Drake. You can believe that.”
The supposed fracas reportedly occurred after the rappers discovered they were both in the Greenhouse club and 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.
Earlier this month (August 13), Brown denied reports that he and Drake would settle their differences by taking part in a charity boxing match. It had been reported over the weekend that the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas on September 22 had been booked for an in-ring bout between the two men, but Brown dismissed the reports and described them as “a sad attempt at PR”.
