R&B star Drake has come under fire, RadarOnline.com has learned, after a Jacksonville, Florida man accused the chart-topper of starting a fight with him, then letting his bodyguards do the dirty work.
Jeremis Soriano said the incident took place Thursday night at a club where he was loudly praising at the singer, triggering one of the singer’s bodyguards to bust his lip with a swift sock to the mouth, causing Soriano to get six stitches at Jacksonville’s Memorial Hospital.
“Before I got to say his name, he hit me in the mouth and I fell back,” Soriano told Fox30.
An unidentified pal of the accused corroborated the story.
“He never put his hands on Drake. He never made a fist toward the security guard for them to hit him that hard,” Soriano’s friend said.
“Drake went to get on the bus and he flicked me off and said ‘F— You, you are nothing.”
“They are just regular people with a little more money than us,” Soriano said.
“[We] are the same people that are buying your CDs. You shouldn’t treat us like that.”
