Sparring singers Chris Brown and Drake have been offered $1 million apiece to continue their bottle-flinging fracas in a boxing ring. Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Fieldman said billionaire soda bottling heir Alki David has offered to write the hefty checks and give another $1 million to charity if the rival R&B stars agree to put up their dukes.
“Obviously they have a grudge. It’s just three 1-minute rounds. No one will get seriously hurt,” Feldman told the Daily News.
He said the pay-per-view event could be in Las Vegas or Los Angeles with a target date of Aug. 25. A Brown representative told The News that the performer’s camp has “never heard” of the offer.
The singers have been linked to a police investigation since their alleged feud left at least eight people injured following the violent melee inside Manhattan’s W.i.P. nightclub June 14.
A police source earlier told The News that investigators were tracking down witnesses to support claims that Drake, 25, taunted Brown and his entourage with overtures related to Rihanna, the sultry singer they’ve both dated.
The brawl left Brown with a busted chin and his NBA pal Tony Parker with enough damage to his left eye that he required surgery and might miss playing for France’s national team in the Summer Olympics.
Feldman said he’d like Rihanna to participate in the proposed punch-fest, never mind that Brown was convicted of beating her bloody in 2009.
“I would love to have Rihanna as the ring girl,” Feldman told The News Monday.
