Drake started the blowout NYC nightclub brawl last summer with Chris Brown … by sending Brown a handwritten note that read “I”m f***ing the love of your life” — this according to Chris Brown”s bodyguard.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by the NY Daily News, Patrick Strickland — whose head was badly bloodied during the flying bottle attacks — is suing Drake and W.i.P. nightclub, where the brawl took place last June.
Strickland says Drake”s note — a clear reference to Rihanna — started a verbal altercation, which then led to the all-out melee in which several people were badly injured … including Strickland and several other clubgoers.
According to Strickland, the club is also responsible for overserving Dreezy — and seating him way too close to Chris … in light of their public beef over RiRi.
He”s suing for unspecified damages.
