Chris Brown and Drake's Fight: Rihanna "Loves the Drama"
Makes her feel like she's the only girl in the world!
After Chris Brown and Drake -- or at least their entourages -- sparked a violent brawl between their entourages at a downtown NYC club early Thursday, it was widely assumed that the fight was over one very special lady: Rihanna, Brown's ex and Drake's pal, collaborator, and rumored hook-up.
Although the "We Found Love" singer had been spotted out and about in NYC earlier in the week, she wasn't at W.i.P. (where fellow stars like Mary J. Blige, Neyo, Maxwell and others were spotted Thursday evening) when a massive fight broke out between Brown and Drake's respective posses.
But she definitely heard about it, a source tells Us Weekly. Rihanna "loves this!" the source says. "Men fighting over her? Are you kidding? Of course. [She] loves the drama."
Brown, 23, tweeted a photo of a serious gash on his chin after a bystander (said to be a member of Drake's entourage) threw a bottle at him during the melee. ("Chris and Drake never got in each other's faces," an observer says. "It was entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris.")
Rihanna "got text messages from everybody telling her what happened right after it went down," the source explains. "She just laughed. She's spoken to both of them and just thinks it's crazy. She's glad she wasn't there though!"
As previously reported by Us, the chart-topping singer, 24, has been secretly hooking up with abusive ex Brown for over a year -- and has been romantically linked to Drake, 25, in the past.
"She wants to be friends with both of them," the source explains.
For his part, "Take Care" rapper Drake denied "any wrongdoing" at W.i.P. in a Thursday statement to Us. "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," his rep said.
