P. Diddy and Drake were involved in a brawl outside of Liv at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami on Sunday night, it has been claimed. The scuffle began when the 45-year-old Ciroc spokesman claimed Drake had been using music without the proper rights, according to Page Six. The two had both been at the club for DJ Khaled’s birthday party, and Diddy was said to have reentered following the brawl, while Drake left.
Other sources claimed the fight stemmed from nasty comments Drake had made to the mogul’s girlfriend, singer Cassie. According to a report by Daily News the fight occurred around 4 a.m., and resulted in Diddy injuring the 28-year-old rapper.
Ray LeMoine, Editor of Bullet Magazine had been at the event earlier and received multiple text messages following the altercation.
‘Drake definitely got the s**t kicked out of him,’ LeMoine said. ‘I heard they were taking him to the hospital.’
Rick Ross’ DJ, Sam Sneaker, was also in attendance at the star-studded party, and tweeted his account of the events. He started with:
‘It definitely wasn’t bout Cassie,’ following close behind with: ‘Drake at the Hospital Smh.’
The DJ also specified the injury that Drake had allegedly suffered, tweeting:
‘He dislocated his Shoulder.’ He was sure to add: ‘It’ll come out soon,’ and ‘Yall pray for Drake.’
A third account speculated that the problem may have been residual anger from when Drake disrespected Diddy at the NBA All-Star weekend. According to Page Six Drake frustrated the rapper when he took the microphone out of his hand when they were performing together.
The two were performing at the Metropolitan Club in New Orleans along with Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Kevin Hart, and Fabolous, when Drake’s mic turned out to be defective as he began his song, Worst Behavior.
The rapper then threw his mic on the floor, and took Diddy’s right out of his hand, forcing him to claim the broken one from the ground. Drake’s rep declined to comment, as did the rep for the club where the incident occurred. Diddy’s rep could not be reached.
