NEW York police shut down a nightclub after R&B singer Chris Brown and rapper Drake got into a brawl over fellow artist Rihanna which left eight injured, authorities and local media said.
A New York Police Department spokeswoman said the W.i.P. (Work in Progress) basement club in Manhattan's SoHo neighbourhood was closed due to unspecified "code violations".
"They were closed indefinitely until they clear up the violations," she added.
Among those injured in the fight in the early hours of Thursday were three black men aged 23 to 30, a black woman, two white women and two Hispanic women, according to police.
The spokeswoman, who would not reveal the victims' identities, said the injuries included lacerations to the face, forehead, neck, head and arm, a possible concussion and a contusion to the front of the head.
