Model Ingrid Gutierrez says that Drake started the fight with Chris Brown. The model says that Brown sent over a bottle of bubbly to Drake’s table but the waitress returned to Brown’s table and handed Brown note.
“They got up in [Chris’] face and were giving him the middle finger,” she said. “Chris told Drake to f–k off, and the next thing I heard was smashed glass and the bottles started flying at us.”
Gutierrez then says that Brown got mad at the note, which reference Rihanna. That is when Brown threw the note onto the ground. The model said that is when Drake and his entourage approached Brown’s table and started a fight.
The model said that Brown was not violent at all and it was Drake’s party that was causing a scene, and that Brown wanted to just leave.
“I didn’t see Chris act violently towards anyone,” she said. “Chris said, ‘Let’s go,’ but there were bottles flying and I saw him get hit in the face, so I hunkered down where I was. Suddenly I feel this pain in my head and my friend is covering my face, trying to protect me. And then everything was over. I’m laying bleeding on couch and we’re all freaking out.”
Chris’ attorney Mark Geragos says he is positive that Drake provoked the incident.
“I believe the police are building a case against Drake and his thugs,” he said. “Clearly, Drake was the instigator, and there is evidence he threw glassware.”
