The woman who needed 16 stitches in her head and face after being hit by a flying bottle during the alleged bar brawl between Chris Brown and Drake has spoken out about the ordeal.
Australian tourist Hollie C. was caught in the middle of the fracas at the Manhattan club early on Thursday morning, when the hip hop rivals allegedly butted heads over former flame Rihanna.
On a video, the 24-year-old said she returned home from a night in hospital to find out ‘the reason I have 16 stitches in my head is because of some stupid famous people having a fight over a girl’.
She added on the footage seen by TMZ: ‘Where’s the justice in them driving away in a limo while I had to catch the train home on one of my holidays?’
Grisly pictures show a deep gash on Hollie’s head and blood running down her face. She was one of the five people – including Brown’s bodyguard – hospitalised after the melee.
There have been conflicting accounts of what occurred at W.i.P in SoHo, when cutting words and gestures between Chris Brown and Drake allegedly spiraled out of control.
Hollie’s angry account comes as Chris Brown’s lawyer has reportedly given detectives ‘physical evidence’ proving that Drake was involved in the bar brawl, despite claiming he was outside.

Lawyer Mark Geragos went to the NYPD on Thursday night to present evidence showing Drake was one of the aggressors, law enforcement sources told TMZ.
It added that Brown is being treated as a ‘witness and victim’ rather than a suspect. He spoke to officers on Thursday night about the incident, according to TMZ.
Drake is not being treated as a suspect either and has been co-operating with authorities, but it is not known if he has spoken to officers.
Witnesses said the men, who have both been romantically linked to Rihanna, started fighting after Brown sent Drake a bottle of Champagne as a peace offering – which Drake snubbed.
He reportedly sent the bottle back with a note: ‘I’m f****** the love of your life, deal with it.’

Enraged, Brown reportedly confronted Drake, who threw a punch at his rival, the Global Grind reported. Before Brown could react, one of Drake’s group threw a bottle at him, hitting his chin.
Brown posted a picture on Twitter of his sliced chin, an injury over which he could press charges.
Within moments, the trouble reportedly escalated and bottles and punches were thrown.
‘Within a few moments of noticing glass being thrown around, I saw a glass bottle headed towards me, consequently hitting me in the head.’ Hollie told TMZ.
‘I immediately started to bleed and proceeded to fall in and out of consciousness.’
Big Pat, Brown’s bodyguard, was also hospitalised in the ruckus. A photo shows him laying in a hospital bed with a bloody, wound on his head.

A source told the New York Post: ‘They were on opposite sides of the room, Drake went over to the middle of the club to talk to someone, then words were exchanged with Chris and his entourage.
The source said someone from Drake’s entourage, possibly the singer himself, threw a bottle.
‘Once the bottle was thrown, all hell broke loose and there were more bottles thrown.’
The fight allegedly kicked off as the last song was playing, just before 4 a.m. Police were already at the scene as it was closing time and they ‘were on it in seconds and began getting everyone out.’
Pictures of the aftermath show the club floor strewn with broken glass.
Brown was pulled out of the situation by his own security and helped out of the club while Drake was pulled to the back of the club, the source said. ‘[Drake] was one of the last out of W.I.P.’
The account comes despite Drake’s claims that he was not involved in a fight. His spokeswoman said in a statement: ‘He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began.
The New York Police department confirmed that the two singers’ crews got into a fight at the club and that five people – including Big Pat, two other men and two women – were injured.
Police were looking at surveillance footage and talking to patrons who witnessed the melee. No arrests have been made and no complaints have been filed.
Chris Brown and Toronto rapper Drake two have had a war of words since both being romantically attached to Rihanna.
Recent rumours have suggested Brown and Rihanna could rekindle their romance, despite their high profile break up after Brown savagely beat her ahead of her Grammy Awards performance in 2009.
The lovelorn pair have been linked together several times already this year, after it emerged that they had recorded songs with each other.
Drake was born on October 24th, 1986 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_(entertainer)
October 24th, 1986
