Chris Brown and Drake have been hit with a $16 million dollar lawsuit over their June brawl at the joint NYC nightclubs Greenhouse and WiP, reports the New York Post. Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., who own the trademark to the Greenhouse’s name, claim they had a $4 million licensing deal ruined because of bad press following the incident. The company believes Drake and Brown should be held responsible for their lost profits, calling their behavior “beyond the bounds of reason” and stating that the two “should have foreseen that their notoriety and celebrity would ensure that their acts had far-reaching and devastating effects.”

The lawsuit paints Drake and Brown in active roles that night, having arrived at the club with huge entourages. “On defendant Brown and and defendant Drake’s instructions, their two posses had at each other, throwing highball glasses laden with alcohol, shattering the handles of bottles of spirits to use as makeshift knives, and even throwing full bottles at each other. Within seconds, defendants filled an already packed nightclub full of flying glass shrapnel,” reads the suit.

The current owners of Greenhouse and WiP are not in Entertainment Enterprises. NBA athlete Tony Parker, an unaffiliated bystander whose eye was seriously injured during the brawl, sued the owners of the clubs for $20 million.
