Drake and Chris Brown in nightclub brawl over Rihanna

Red top tales: Hip hop rivals 'turn NY nightclub into war-zone', Cheryl Cole spends night with naked girls

LAST UPDATED AT 14:26 ON Fri 15 Jun 2012

JEALOUS hip-hop rivals Drake and Chris Brown reportedly ended up in a nightclub brawl in the early hours of Thursday morning after crude sexual taunts about singer Rihanna. Witnesses claim the two rappers, who have both been romantically linked to the Umbrella singer, fought in Club W.i.P in Manhattan. Brown allegedly sent Drake a bottle of Champagne as a peace offering, which Drake returned with a note saying: "I'm f****** the love of your life, deal with it." Investigators believe Brown was leaving the club when he was confronted by some of Drake's entourage, at which point "somebody" through a bottle and a brawl broke out, leaving the nightclub looking like "a warzone". Police are investigating after five people were injured, including Brown. Drake, however, insists he never threw a bottle or a punch.
 
CHERYL COLE SPENDS NIGHT AT CRAZY HORSE
Cheryl Cole spent an X-rated night at Paris burlesque club The Crazy Horse this week, according to the Daily Star. The Girls Aloud singer watched a troupe of naked women perform at the club that describes itself as the 'French elite of beauty and seduction'. Dancers opened the show with a British military-themed striptease called God Save Our Bareskin and later performed a raunchy dance similar to Cole's music video Fight for this Love. The 28-year-old apparently couldn't keep the smile off her face after watching dancers Zula Zazou, Jade Or, Psykko Tico and Nooka Karamel.

CATHERINE ZETA JONES'S KIDS GO TO BUTLINS
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas might be Hollywood royalty but their children still go to Butlins on their holidays. The Oscar-winning actress won a talent contest at the holiday park as a teenager and reckons her children, 11-year-old Dylan and 9-year-old Carys, love it just as much as she does. "They love going to Butlin's with my parents for long weekends," she says in The Sun, adding: "They've been on the beach when it's been horizontal rain in Swansea. They can't believe it; they're on the beach and it's raining."

WOMAN'S MOUTH 'FALLS PREGNANT' TO SQUID
A South Korean woman's mouth has "fallen pregnant to 12 squid after biting into a sea creature", reports the Daily Mail today. According to a scientific paper from the National Centre for Biotechnology Information in Bethesda in Maryland, the 63-year-old woman was eating a portion of whole raw squid when she felt a sharp pain in her mouth. Twelve "squid spermatophores", similar to semen, were later removed from her tongue, cheek and gums. Cephalopods expert Danna Staaf advises against putting spermatophores in your mouth but says its fine to handle them as the skin on your body is too thick for them to get stuck. She adds: "I've probably had hundreds of spermatophores ejaculate on my fingers and never felt a sting."
 
GIRL RUNS NAKED THROUGH TESCO ON BENZO
A teenage girl has admitted to prancing naked in Tesco after taking legal high Benzo Fury. Shop worker Katie Wilson, who describes herself as "a respectable BMW driver" from Lincolnshire, took the drug at a friend's house before "parading through the Tesco aisles like a catwalk diva". "It was terrifying," the 19-year-old told The Sun. "I had chewed a pen so it looked like I had black teeth - and I had drawings all over my body." When police arrived she karate-kicked one in the face before booting the patrol car's wing mirror off as she was taken away in handcuffs. Wilson, of Deeping St James, Lincs, admitted outraging public decency and criminal damage at Grantham Magistrates' Court. She got a conditional discharge and £200 fine. ·
