BOXING PROMOTER OFFERS 1 MILLION APIECE FOR CHRIS BROWN & DRAKE PAPER VIEW FIGHT
Sparring singers Chris Brown and Drake have been offered $1 million apiece to continue their bottle-flinging fracas in a boxing ring. Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman said billionaire soda bottling heir Alki David has offered to write the hefty checks and give another $1 million to charity if the rival R&B stars agree to put up their dukes.
“Obviously they have a grudge. It’s just three 1-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt,” Feldman told the Daily News.
He said the pay-per-view event could be in Las Vegas or Los Angeles with a target date of Aug. 25. A Brown representative told The News that the performer’s camp has “never heard” of the offer. The singers have been linked to a police investigation since their alleged feud left at least eight people injured following the violent melee inside Manhattan’s W.i.P. nightclub June 14.
A police source earlier told The News that investigators were tracking down witnesses to support claims that Drake, 25, taunted Brown and his entourage with overtures related to Rihanna, the sultry singer they’ve both dated.
