Drake never wants to be associated with Chris Brown again after their New York City club fight last June, and says the former love rivals will never patch things up.
The rapper is still fuming over his New York City club bust-up with the R&B singer last June, during which several people were injured after note passing about mutual flame Rihanna turned into a bottle-throwing brawl between the two love rivals and their respective entourages.
One year on, Drake has spoken openly about the W.i.P nightclub incident for the first time, insisting he will never patch things up with the ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ hitmaker.
Referring to Chris’ on/off relationships with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, Drake told America’s GQ magazine: “I hear he has everything he could want now. I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down … and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen.”
The 26-year-old star – who is said to have started the fight by sending Chris a bottle of champagne from across the bar with a note reading, “I’m f***ing the love of your life” – insists he isn’t a confrontational person and was provoked by Chris.
He ranted: “I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down. It’s embarrassing, the amount of media coverage … Two rappers fighting over the woman.
“He’s not even a rapper, but still, it’s the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he’s made me the enemy, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay, I guess.”
The ‘Successful’ rapper also said he worries for Rihanna if she should get back together with Chris, who was arrested for assaulting her in February 2009.
He added: “If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly. Like, it gets really dark.”
