Drake - Drake Refuses To Acknowledge Club Fight At Concert

Rapper Drake bounced back from reports of his late night club brawl with Chris Brown to hit the stage at a scheduled concert in New York on Thursday (14Jun12).
The Best I Ever Had hitmaker's crew allegedly became embroiled in a violent altercation with Brown and his entourage at Manhattan hotspot W.i.P. on Wednesday (13Jun12), leaving the Kiss Kiss singer with a nasty cut to his chin after he was hit in the face with a bottle. Four other people also suffered bloody injuries.
A representative for Drake dismissed rumours suggesting he was involved in the fight, insisting the hip-hop star "did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind" and was "on his way out of the club" when the trouble began.
Drake headed to Saratoga Springs for a gig on Thursday night and refused to even acknowledge the bust-up as he addressed fans, telling the crowd, "I woke up this morning and the only thing that was on my mind was the fact that we had a f**king show at Saratoga tonight."
Police have launched an investigation into the incident and Brown and his pals are said to have given witness statements to cops to tell their side of the story.
Drake has yet to meet with officers, but a spokesperson for the New York Police Department reveals he is planning to answer investigators' questions about the incident "at a time more convenient for him and his attorney".
Lil Wayne's rap protege had turned up at W.i.P. to attend a birthday party for Ne-Yo's manager Javon Smith.
R&B star Mary J. Blige, rapper Fabolous and Eva Longoria's basketball star ex-husband Tony Parker were also guests at the party hours before the fight broke out.
