Nightclub Closed After Celebrity Melee Sues NYC
A New York nightclub that was the site of a celebrity-studded, bottle-tossing brawl is suing the city for shutting it down.
The company that runs Greenhouse says in a lawsuit made public Monday it’s losing $264,000 a week.
City lawyers say the club also filed other papers last week seeking to reopen and the matter remains unresolved.
Greenhouse’s lawyer and publicist won’t comment.
Police shuttered Greenhouse on June 16, citing code violations. Two days earlier, R&B singer Chris Brown and members of rapper Drake’s entourage faced off in the club’s basement lounge, called W.i.P. Brown and NBA star Tony Parker were among those injured.
Police say people in Drake’s entourage stopped Brown on his way out. Drake’s representatives say he was leaving when the fight began and didn’t hurt anyone.
