Lucy Pavlovsky was sitting beside Brown in the VIP section of the W.I.P nightclub when the incident took place. She suffered a gash to her arm and required 12 stitches.
Javier Solano, a lawyer speaking on behalf of the victim, told gossip website TMZ that his client had been hit by a bottle and was later taken to hospital to receive a tetanus shot and stiches.
He added that his client had been interviewed by NYPD officers and planned to bring a lawsuit to the club but did not rule out that Brown or Drake could be included, saying: “At this moment we are exploring all options on who will become a defendant. I can assure you that regardless of fame, money or stature, the people responsible will be held accountable.”
It has previously been claimed that the fight began after 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.
Mark Geragos, Chris Brown’s attorney, has 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.”
