Chris Brown has sustained a bloody gash on his chin after an alleged altercation with Drake's entourage.
The 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker - who was convicted of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna three years ago - was reportedly hit by a bottle when his associates clashed with the rapper's friends in a New York nightclub WIP last night (13.06.12), resulting in an altercation which left five people injured.
Chris and Drake have been involved in a long-running feud over Drake's alliance with Rihanna, and unconfirmed reports revealed the 'Run It' hitmaker sent a bottle of champagne to his rival's table as a peace offering but it was returned with a note reading, "I'm f***ing the love of your life, deal with it."
The gesture is said to have enraged the 23-year-old singer and he confronted Drake, who allegedly threw a punch before security broke up the melee and Drake left the club, website MediaTakeOut.com reports.
Chris was treated in hospital following the brawl and he later posted a gruesome picture of his gashed chin to his 10 million followers on twitter and vented his anger with further tweets before later removing the posts.
He wrote: "How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol... Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!
"N****s in the bathroom b***h a** n****s. (sic)".
The New York Police Department arrived on the scene after receiving a call between 4am and 5am but neither Chris nor Drake were present when they turned up. No arrests were made.
