THE Brooklyn model who was partying with Chris Brown and his crew before the brawl with rapper Drake says she was having the time of her life until all hell broke loose.
Ingrid Gutierrez, 21, and six girlfriends arrived at the exclusive WiP club around 3am local time on Thursday and were whisked right past the velvet rope and into a VIP section.
"It was crowded, and I wanted to go somewhere where I could just sit," said Gutierrez.
"We wanted to hear some hip-hop," she said. "So we went to WiP, because we know everyone there and we knew that's the kind of music they had."
In the club, Gutierrez bumped into a female friend she has in common with Brown - and landed two seats at the rapper's table.
"Each of them had a bottle [of champagne] and they were sharing them with us," she said of Brown's entourage.
They were also buying bottles for other tables - a gesture that would soon prove the powder keg for the massive melee.
"They were all so nice," Gutierrez said. "We were having such a good time. I was talking to my girlfriends, and I talked to Chris a little bit."
"I was just there having a good time with my friends," she said. "I wasn't interested in any of the guys."
"We were having so much fun," she said - and everyone at the table was drunk and relaxed when the mood suddenly changed just before 4am.
Brown asked a waitress to send a bottle of the bubbly to Drake's table, and she came back with a piece of paper that Brown looked at and threw onto the floor.
That turned out to be the taunting Rihanna-referencing note that read, "I am f***** the love of your life," sources have said.
