At this point the only thing that seems certain about the events at club W.I.P. last night in New York City is that Chris Brown was injured by someone associated with Drake who used a champagne bottle as a weapon.
Initial reports indicated Drake and Brown got into a heated argument over Rihanna, which resulted in Brown being punched, then hit with a bottle by Drake. However, the Toronto rapper's reps have reached out to TMZ to deny any involvement in the fight that left several people injured including Brown's bodyguard Big Pat,who was hospitalized with a wound to his head.

"Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began," Drake's rep told TMZ. "[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”
The report states that the argument actually took place between Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, Brown and one of Brown's lieutenants. Mill and Drake were at the club together reportedly.
TMZ's source would not say what the argument was about out of fear that someone would get hurt, but they did say it wasn't about Rihanna. The source says it was Meek who hit Chris with the bottle.
Story still developing...
As we continue to try and piece together what happened last night things are becoming a bit clearer. TMZ is reporting that although Drake didn't actually get involved in the fight that broke out among several people including Chris Brown, he instigated the whole thing.
According to the latest report, Drake threw up his middle finger at Brown's entourage and said "I'm about to go whoop that a**!" Brown's crew then threw up their own hand gestures which angered Drake even though he did it first.
At that point Drake got other rappers including Meek Mill and Juelz Santana amped up enough to join him and shouted at Chris "You be on that ho sh*t on Twitter n*gga" Drake was apparently referring to shots he, Meek and Chris have exchanged on Twitter over Rihanna.
After that Chris' bodyguard's stepped up between the two groups and there was some pushing and shoving before bottles started to fly.
As we mentioned above several people were injured from the flying bottles and broken glass. A 24-year old female Australian tourist by the name of Hollie C. was at the cub with friends and ended up in the hospital with a gash to her head that required 16 stitches to close.
"Within a few moments of noticing glass being thrown around, I saw a glass bottle headed towards me; consequently hitting me in the head," she told TMZ. "I immediately started to bleed and proceeded to fall in and out of consciousness."
A party goer also shot footage right after the club closed. It shows Chris Brown, Meek Mill, Trey Songz and Drake leaving. Peep that below.
