    Not a lot of love from this club!

    Chris Brown and Drake are being sued for $16 million by W.i.P., the NYC nightclub where their entourages allegedly got into a bloody brawl on June 14. E! News obtained the lawsuit filed by Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. (the owner of W.i.P. and Greenhouse Clubs) alleging that the Brown and Drake themselves were the causes behind their entourages fighting.

    According to the lawsuit, Brown and Drake "shared a grudge against the other arising out of their romantic relationships with the same woman"—presumably Rihanna. The suit adds when they "crossed paths" at the venue they "began to fight violently with each other."

    The club states that while it ensured no one in Brown or Drake's entourage was armed, both artists arrived "with their own small army of bodyguards, 'security' personnel, employees, friends and other members of their entourage, consisting of at least 15 heavily built men trained and/or experienced in hand-to-hand and weapons combat."

    Per the suit, Brown and Drake started fighting, then "each ordered his security personnel, bodyguards, friends and entourage to join the fight, which erupted into a violent brawl on a massive scale."

    Each man's entourage members "fashioned deadly weapons out of whatever materials they could find, including glasses, alcohol bottles and furniture, thereby circumventing the nightclubs' extensive efforts to ensure a safe environment," according to the club's suit.

    "Terrorized patrons ran for cover," the suit alleges, adding that clubbers used "banquettes and tables as improvised shields. Most were unable to protect themselves." Several patrons, including NBA star Tony Parker, were injured during the incident.

    Although neither Drake nor Brown has been charged criminally for anything related to the brawl, the club's suit says they "should have foreseen that their notoriety and celebrity would ensure that their acts had far-reaching and devastating effects."

    The club is asking for multiple compensatory and punitive damages totalling $16 million.

    Reps for Brown and Drake have not responded to E! News' requests for comment.
