The Word: Drake, Chris Brown fight far from over


What seemed to be a relatively minor bar fight between Chris Brown and Drake last week is still far from over.

The Manhattan nightclub where the incident took place, W.i.P., has been closed down due to multiple code violations, according to the Associated Press.

As for the fight itself, a source tells the Associated Press that the two hip-hop stars weren’t even involved in the bottle-throwing brawl, claiming it was “entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris,” shooting down the theory that the two were fighting over Rihanna.

Rapper Meek Mill — who was at the club with Drake, and was initially identified as an instigator — also says the stars weren’t involved. “Chris and Drake, them two was there, but it’s other people that be around that take sh— to the next level,” he tells “Things just happen in the club. I seen girls in there throwing bottles. I never seen Chris Brown or Drake throw a bottle, and I was there.”

While Brown has already talked to cops, Drake has declined to answer questions. “Why would he turn himself in when he did not commit any wrongdoing?” his rep told the New York Post in a statement on Sunday.

The only thing more annoying than a hip-hop fight is a never-ending non-hip-hop fight between “entourages” and publicists.  This thing is one airborne bottle of Skinnygirl Margaritas away from being a “Real Housewives” episode.

Charlie Sheen: Wah

After his new show “Anger Management” wraps, Charlie Sheen plans to retire from acting.

“I’ve been doing this 30 years. And there’s a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know?” the former “Two and a Half Men” star tells the New York Times. “I mean, I’m grateful. I’ve got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else’s clothes, saying somebody else’s words and working in somebody else’s space.”

Charlie, this whole wearing clothes you don’t like and saying things you don’t mean thing? It’s called work. We’re all tired of it. And very few of us are lucky enough to afford the drugs to escape it.

Can’t nobody hold Lohan down

Although she was treated for exhaustion and dehydration last week, Lindsay Lohan was back to partying on Saturday at the Chateau Marmont, according to Us Weekly. “For someone so exhausted, it was shocking to see her out past 1 a.m.,” a source says. Lohan, who was reportedly still in hair and makeup from the Elizabeth Taylor biopic she’s filming, stayed until the hotel’s restaurant cleared out for the night.

Paramedics were called to the actress’ hotel room on Friday, but she’s maintaining a sense of humor about it. “Note to self…after working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion + 7 paramedics MIGHT show up @ your door…Hopefully theyre cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down,” she tweeted.

Linds, we like your style. But next time, just pull the fire alarm — way cuter, and they carry axes.
