“TMZ has obtained a photo of Chris Brown inside NYC nightclub, W.i.P., early Thursday morning. The photo was taken seconds before he got clocked with a champagne bottle in a brawl with Drake‘s posse — and he looks totally oblivious to the violence that was about to erupt.
In the photo, Chris is shirtless and holding a bottle of Ace of Spades champagne … surrounded by fans, friends — and his bodyguard, Big Pat, who ended up hospitalized with a massive gash to his forehead after the brawl broke out.
According to several eyewitnesses, Drake and Chris had been jawing at each other leading up to the brawl — still, Chris doesn’t look the least bit concerned in the photo.
We also obtained pics of Drake — taken minutes earlier — and rapper Juelz Santana is already standing next to him. We’re told Juelz, Meek Mill, and Trav B all stepped up for Drake … and eventually tussled with Chris and his crew…”
