Report: Chris Brown, Drake Won't Face Charges in Nightclub Brawl

Shareif Ziyadat/Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Neither Chris Brown nor Drake will reportedly face any charges stemming from that knock-down, drag-out, bottle-smashing brawl at the WIP nightclub in New York City in June, reports.

Members of both stars' entourages will reportedly skate as well, New York Police Department sources tell the gossip site, stating that dark and blurry surveillance camera footage from the club didn't provide investigators with any useful evidence.

Drake suffered a cut on his chin in the brawl, and other club-goers were injured as well, including NBA star Tony Parker, who sued the club for $20 million after he was cut near his eye by broken glass.

Club Manager Arrested After Chris Brown, Drake Brawl

Shareif Ziyadat/Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- One day after a bottle-throwing fight erupted between Chris Brown and Drake at a New York City club, police arrested the manager of the club.

Jonathan Cantor, the manager of Greenhouse, was taken into custody Thursday night after police found out he had two outstanding warrants against him. He was summonsed for a noise violation for loud music and arrested for his open warrants.

W.i.P., the club where Drake and Brown fought, is located in the basement of Greenhouse, and is a joint venture between Greenhouse and firm Collective Hardware. Following Cantor’s arrest, the clubs were shut hours before their normal 4 a.m. closing time and the patrons were sent home.

Though multiple photos and videos of Brown and Drake’s brawl have appeared online, their reps maintain that the hip-hop stars did nothing wrong.

“Chris, Karrueche [Brown's girlfriend] and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at W.i.P.,” Brown’s publicist told ABC News. “They sustained several injuries.  Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further.”

NYPD have interviewed Brown, as a victim and not as a suspect, they say.

In a statement to ABC News, Drake’s publicist said, “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. He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”

Cops are investigating what happened on Wednesday night. When they arrived at the club at 4 a.m. Thursday after receiving a call about disorderly conduct, they found one man and four women who had sustained non-life threatening injuries. No charges were filed.

Brown tweeted about the incident, posting a photo of himself with a gash on his chin, but subsequently deleted those tweets.

Spears Treats Vegas Crowd to Surprise Performances

Jive Records (LAS VEGAS) -- Hours after leaking her intentions on Twitter, Britney Spears treated the crowd at Rain Nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas to a pair of suprise performances Friday night.

The 29-year-old took to the stage as part of an MTV special being filmed on the pop star.

Spears' appearance came just days before the release of her seventh studio album, Femme Fatale, on March 29. The Jive Records recording artist performed several songs from her new album, including singles, "Hold it Against Me," "Till the World Ends," and "Big Fat Bass."

It was the second time Spears has surprised the crowd at Rain Nightclub, having performed unannounced at the venue in 2003.

Before Spears took to the stage, DJ Pauly D of MTV's Jersey Shore kicked off the night with a DJ set at the nightclub.
