Diddy and Drake Altercation at Club Liv Was About ‘Respect’, Not Women
The internet exploded after word began to spread that Drake got hit by Diddy at Miami's Club Liv. People began to speculate that Drake made a 'pass' at Cassie but we know now that is not the case.
Via Page Six reports:
Rappers Sean “Diddy” Combs and Drake got into a fight outside a top Miami club Sunday night.
According to witnesses, the fight started outside Liv at the Fontainebleau Hotel following an argument regarding music rights to an unknown song.
One source told us, “Drake and Diddy got into it outside the club. They were arguing over the rights to a song, and got into a physical fight. Diddy claimed that Drake was using music without the proper rights.”
The source denied other reports that the fight was over Diddy’s girlfriend Cassie, adding that once the fight was broken up, Drake left the scene while Diddy went inside the club.
Both were attending a birthday party for DJ Khaled at Liv.
A rep for Drake didn’t comment, while Diddy’s rep could not be reached. A rep for the club declined to comment.
Earlier Sunday night Drake had been spotted dining at Siena Tavern Miami with his producer Angelo Ferraro and an entourage of 12.
Some speculated that the beef might go back to February this year when Drake dissed Diddy onstage at the NBA All-Star weekend by grabbing his microphone out of his hand as they performed together.
Drake and Diddy were at Metropolitan club in New Orleans with Nelly, Busta Rhymes, Kevin Hart and Fabolous, when Drake broke out his tune, “Worst Behavior.”
He was seen grabbing Diddy’s mic, and throwing his own defective mic on the floor, forcing Diddy to get down on the ground and pick up the one Drake had discarded.
It was money, not women, that made Diddy punch Drake outside of a Miami nightclub early Monday morning ... TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, Diddy confronted Drake just outside LIV nightclub -- where they'd both been partying -- and the topic of conversation was business. During the tete-a-tete, voices were raised and according to eyewitnesses ... Diddy said, "You will never disrespect me" ... and then clocked Drizzy.
Our sources say it was just the one punch -- Drake was stunned, but not knocked out. One report said the fight was over Diddy's girlfriend, but we're told that wasn't the case.
Drake famously fought with Chris Brown in June 2012 at W.i.P. nightclub in NYC, but that one was over a woman -- Rihanna.
Drake has had an action packed weekend after being the alleged center of the break up between Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran after she allegedly messed with Drake on the side. Hoping Drake works this out.
