After hosting a Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Manny Pacquiao post-fight party at Drai’s atop the Cromwell on May 2, singer and actor Chris Brown returned to the center Strip hotspot Tuesday night to celebrate his 26th birthday, Cinco de Mayo and Drai’s Yacht Club industry night party.
During the actual day of his birthday at Drai’s, Brown, dressed festively and colorfully for Cinco de Mayo, was showing off dance moves onstage and took a tumble. Security quickly picked him up, and he resumed his performance onstage.
Brown gave the audience a champagne shower with Ace of Spades, and he was presented with a tiered birthday cake that showed photographs of him throughout his career.
Brown is a Drai’s Live resident performer, but this was not an official Drai’s Live event. Despite the night being only a hosting gig, Brown hopped onstage and performed for his fans. He returns to Drai’s during Fourth of July Weekend.
Welterweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. showed up for Brown’s party and created a frenzy, with nightlife revelers clamoring to see him. He had a private bungalow for his group and himself.
It was quite the week for Brown, who also dealt with an allegation of assault at the Palms before his birthday. Thanks to Lauren Ungerer of Key Lime Photo for her photo gallery of the celebration.
