Drake, Odell Beckham Jr. and Kourtney Kardashian‘s ex are being sued by a guy who claims he was viciously beaten by a gang of thugs and Drake and Beckham were behind it.
Bennett Sipes claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, he was at Delilah nightclub in WeHo when there was a confrontation inside between himself and the defendants. When he attempted to leave the VIP area, he says Drake gave the “throat slash” hand gesture.
As he was attempting to enter the restroom, he says he was attacked by Younes Bendjima, Kourtney Kardashian’s ex, along with members of Drake and Beckham’s entourage.
The video shows the brutal fight. Sipes says he continues to incur medical bills and suffers “extreme mental anguish and physical pain.”
As TMZ first reported, a source at the club told us Sipes “talked smack” as he approached the group.
Sipes filed a police report, but changed his mind and dropped it … at least criminally.
He’s also suing Delilah and others.
Cops showed up at R. Kelly‘s birthday celebration at a Chicago nightclub … responding to a call about a warrant for the singer’s arrest … TMZ has learned.
Kelly was partying his ass off at V75 Nightclub early Thursday morning when cops say someone dropped a dime … calling them to say Kelly was there, and had a warrant for his arrest. Check out the police dispatcher putting the call out to Chicago PD units.
Law enforcement confirmed to TMZ that they did indeed go to the club and make contact with Kelly — however, once they determined there was NO actual arrest warrant … Kelly was free to go about his business.
It’s unclear if the caller was just pranking Kelly, or if the person really thought there was an arrest warrant … but cops tell us they routinely respond to such calls … just to make sure.
As for Kelly’s party … it was a pretty wild scene.
He was surrounded by screaming fans as he grabbed the mic and announced he was gonna party for his birthday regardless of the controversy swirling around him after the airing of “Surviving R. Kelly.”
Strange as it sounds … Kelly had tons of fans on hand gassing him up as he sang the opening to “Bump N’ Grind.”
If Jon Bon Jovi‘s voice ever craps out, we found the perfect stand-in … a guy who already knows all the lyrics, and is usually just a few feet away onstage — his keyboardist, David Bryan!
David walked into the Casa Nightclub in St. Bart’s Wednesday around closing time — 5 AM (island time, mon) — with some friends. The DJs — Shortkutz and Chris Magic — recognized the Bon Jovi rocker and started blasting the Hall of Fame band’s hits.
DB must’ve been feeling real good because he jumped up and grabbed the mic to belt out “It’s My Life” and “Livin’ on a Prayer.”
Folks at Casa tell us the club’s owner, Julien Roussel, decided to stay open a little later so the patrons could enjoy the free concert and keep singing along.
David sang 5 of the band’s hits when it was all said and done before waltzing out of the joint.
BTW … Bon Jovi goes on tour in May, but we’re pretty sure Bryan will be back on keys and backup vocals. For now.
