R&B star Drake has come under fire, 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.

"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."
