Spokespeople for both rapper's speak out following the incident in New York this week.
Spokespeople for Chris Brown and Drake have spoken out in reaction to an incident at a New York nightclub where both rappers were partying.
Chris was left with a cut to his face after reportedly being involved in an altercation at WIP on Wednesday (13th June).
The New York Police Department are currently investigating the incident, and would not say whether either rapper was involved.
But several US gossip websites have suggested that the entourages for both stars – and another rapper Meek Mill – confronted each other inside the club shortly before closing time.
A picture posted on Twitter shows debris scattered across the floor, including broken bottles and glass.

Allison Elbl Striegel, a representative for Drake, told Reuters that the 'Take Care' star "did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property".
Several other people are understood to have been injured during the incident earlier this week.
