    Drake may have been at the nightclub when a fight broke out there involving Chris Brown, but the "Best I Ever Had" rapper insists he had nothing do with it.

    A rep for Drake told E! News in a statement: "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."

    Meanwhile, Brown's publicist gave us the following quote: "Chris, [model] Karrueche [Tran] and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at W.i.P. They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further."

    However, a source, who claims to have spoken with a staffer at a local business who was on hand, spoke with E! News, alleging that, per the staffer, Drake supposedly approached Brown outside the club. The source claims that someone then threw a bottle at Breezy, with security jumping in to try to protect him.

    And this morning, Jim Ruscingno, an eyewitness outside the club, spoke to E! News about what he had seen.

    "I didn't see the fight, but the first person to come out was Chris Brown," he said. "He rushed out of the club and his security guard was bloody. Then Meek Mill came out laughing and joking around. Then Drake came out and he looked heated, like he was looking for someone. At first, everyone outside the club didn't know what was happening."

    In the aforementioned statement, though, Drake's rep stressed that "[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property."
