Drake and Chris Brown are taking each other to court over their scuffle at a New York City nightclub last June, TMZ reports.

The two artists and their entourages started throwing punches and bottles at the club W.i.P, allegedly after an argument broke out over Rihanna, with Brown recieving a gash on his chin. A few months after, a model named Romain Julien filed suit against Brown, Drake and the club, claiming he was caught in the crossfire and received cuts, cosmetic deformity and mental distress.

Now, TMZ claims that both Brown and Drake have filed legal documents accusing the other of being responsible for the brawl. Both are essentially asking a judge to decide who would pay the damages should Julien win. 

This is the latest in a handful of suits filed in the wake of the brawl. Along with Julien’s, Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. – which owns W.i.P. – sued Brown and Drake for $16 million, claiming they lost a $4 million licensing deal due to bad press from the fight. NBA star Tony Parker, a bystander that night, also filed suit against the club owners for $20 million, claiming he suffered an eye injury in the melee.

Investigators didn’t find enough evidence for either performer to face criminal charges for the incident.
