Chris Brown's Las Vegas Residency On Hold Following 'Racist' Allegations Against Drai's Nightclub
Chris Brown's Las Vegas residency at Drai's nightclub has been put on hold following his Instagram tirade against alleged "racist" employees.
The singer allegedly refused to apologize to the club's owner after calling the Sin City hot spot a "racist" venue, in a letter sent to Brown's attorney obtained by TMZ. In a now-deleted Instagram post, Brown wrote, "(Empty) Drais has some people working for them that always are on a power trip. Some racist ----. I pack this club out every single time my name is on the flyer. I keep the lights on in this place. I ain't no slave or an employee of this establishment. So make sure you put some respek on my name!"
Drai's nightclub responded with the following statement to Billboard:
"As one of Las Vegas' leading nightclubs and the nation's preeminent hip hop performance venue, Drai's has always taken great pride in its relationships with our incredibly talented resident and guest artists, including a successful partnership with Chris Brown. However, recent events have raised concerns that will need to be addressed with Chris and his management before that relationship can continue to move forward. We have reached out accordingly and are waiting to hear back from his team. We remain open to sitting down with him to discuss the future."
Reps for Brown were not immediately available for comment.
Earlier this month, Brown reportedly rented a villa in Ibiza and was accused of trashing the house before the landlord had the police escort him out. He also allegedly had recent fallouts with his former publicist, Nicole Perna, and manager, Mike G.
