A bloody, bottle-throwing brawl allegedly stemming from a celebrity love triangle left a posh New York City nightclub in ruins and eight people injured on the evening of June 14. There are several conflicting reports, but the trouble apparently began when R&B heartthrob Chris Brown and rapper Drake (pictured together in 2010) got into a spat over pop star Rihanna that allegedly snowballed into a full-scale brawl between their respective entourages. No one was ever charged in the case but the club was shuttered and San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker later said he almost lost his left eye after sustaining an injury during the melee.
