For a second there, I started wondering if the dangerous world of rap had finally corrupted our little Aubrey “Drake” Graham. But we have nothing to fear. Drake’s rep came forward to TMZ a few hours ago and made an official statement regarding Drake’s innocence in the Chris Brown brawl. After Chris posted a pretty gross photo of his post-brawl chin-wreckage on Instagram (the photo’s been removed since), rumors started flying that Drake had thrown a bottle at Chris… over the one person worth throwing a bottle over: Rihanna. Yeah. Get more deets inside.
Here’s the statement from Drake’s rep to TMZ:
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] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.
Riveting stuff, I know.
Another source also told TMZ the fight was not over Rihanna, but would not say what it was about. Others have said rapper Meek Mill threw the bottle at Chris, not Drake. I saw Meek Mill’s early freestyle videos. At 12, he looked like the type to throw a bottle or six. He was adorable, but very Philly, very you-wouldn’t-like-me-when-I’m-angry-esque if ya know what I mean. Luvya Meek.
Here’s the thing. When you’re a grown ass man, I know that you sometimes have to prove that you’re a grown ass man. And I know that sometimes when you have to prove your grown-ass-manliness, you’re in a club and there are bottles around and what’re you gonna do? Not prove your grown-ass-manliness? Not throw a bottle? Of course not. You gotta do what you gotta do.
But why is being a grown ass man so much like being a little boy? The thought of these guys fighting is… like… sad… and adorable. And embarrassing. Look at this mess they made!
I’m so annoyed for the employees at the W.i.P club. And Chris Brown was not the only one hurt; four others between the two camps got injured. I rarely use this (partly because these are my initials and it’s weird for me), but here I make an exception: SMH
What are your thoughts? Is Aubrey AKA Drake AKA Jimmy from Degrassi physically or emotionally capable of getting into a fight? How many of you are secretly (or openly) pleased at that Chris Brown instagram photo? I wish no man harm, but I kinda wanna hit him just for putting that pic up. There’s something really annoying about that. Anyway, best wishes during the healing process or whatever.
Can you guys tell that I’m kind of annoyed to be reporting this? LOL, I think it’s because I’m a Drake fan and I kinda ride for Meek Mill and, yes, I was into Chris pre-Rih-Rih. So more than anything, I’m just embarrassed as a fan of their music and as a fan of men in general. Let’s get it together guys.
Sidenote: Other reports state that Drake actually ran to the bathroom when the bottles started flying. Complex Magazine has collected the top 20 DrakeRanToTheBathroomBecause tweets for your viewing pleasure.
Now that I think about it, where was Rick Ross?
