According to the lawsuit filed against Drake, the source of the 2012 altercation was a note Drizzy sent to Chris that read, “I am f*cking the love of your life.” The vindictive note was in reference to the now-dissolved love triangle between the two singers and entertainer Rihanna. Shortly after, a fight broke out that resulted in the 43-year-old being smashed in the head with a champagne bottle. The attack left Strickland with “severe and disfiguring injuries to his face, head and eyes.”
Strickland is also suing the W.I.P. nightclub for unspecified damages for creating a hostile environment by over-serving Drizzy and sitting the two feuding crews so close to one another.
