Chris Brown & Drake Get Into Violent Club Brawl

Yes, there is video footage.

Despite having collaborated on an as yet unreleased track ('Yamaha Mama'), Chris Brown and Drake were apparently involved in or adjacent to a violent brawl at a New York club, W.i.P., in the wee hours of Thursday morning. From what we can gather, it all started with a couple of vigilante Drake supporters who have taken it upon themselves to 'have his back' when, actually, Drake's back wasn't really in need of 'being had'. 

According to NYPD officers, some guys got all up in Chris' face asking him whether he had a problem with Drake (he said he did not) and as Chris was leaving, a bunch of them blocked his way on the D-floor and started taking off their shirts and yelling (a familiar scene at many a midweek 4am nightclub situation). Bottles were thrown.

Chris' publicist said in a statement that his girlfriend Karrueche Tran and their friends "were victims of a brutal attack last night at W.i.P. They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with N.Y. authorities who are pursuing this incident further." He posted this photo on Twitter (before removing it and various tweets in which he taunted his attackers):

He could use a shave.

Meanwhile, Drake's publicist has stated that he "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. He did not engage in any activity [that] resulted in injury to person or damage to property." 

Obviously. Look at him:

The NYPD is investigating the fight, footage of which you can see here:

Some are saying the two were fighting over Rihanna and others are reporting that an Australian woman's face has been "slashed" leaving her with 16 stitches.
