The plaintiff Bennet Sipes claims he went to see his girlfriend, who was allegedly talking to the defendants in the VIP section of the club. According to the documents obtained by The Blast, Sipes claims that an argument broke out between him and the three men after he approached his girlfriend. He said that when he was exiting the VIP area, he "witnessed Defendant Drake signaling to his private security a hand gesture of 'throat slash'", which he understood as a gesture for physical threat.

Sipes' lawyer told TMZ that the defendants were given a month to settle the issue outside of court, but they had not responded.

When he entered the restroom, Sipes claims he was attacked by Bendjima and members of Drake and Beckham's entourage and private security.

Sipes is suing Drake, Beckham and Bendjima as well as the nightclub for failing to provide security. He told TMZ that he has suffered from "extreme mental anguish and physical pain" and continues to pay his medical bills.

However, sources at the nightclub claimed Siped was the aggressor, and the rapper and Beckham had nothing to do with the alleged attack, writes TMZ.
