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."
