Second female victim shows her wounds after being caught between rappers Chris Brown and Drake during nightclub brawl
A number of innocent bystanders were injured when the romantic rivalry between rappers Chris Brown and Drake turned violent at a Manhattan club early Thursday morning.
The second female victim, who was hit in the face and hand with a broken bottle, has stepped forward and shown her injuries in the wake of the ongoing drama.
A 21-year-old woman named Veronica spoke to TMZ and showed how she sustained a bruise on her forehead and cuts on her right hand that needed to be treated with stitches.

Aftermath: The woman, whose injuries are shown above, now says she plans on suing the club, and isn't ruling out suing the rappers at the heart of the fight as well
Veronica, who was at SoHo nightclub W.i.P. at a table in between both Brown and Drake, said that at first she had no idea what was going on when the fight broke out around 4am on Thursday.
'I heard people screaming ... so I tried to get away from the action and hid behind a couch,' she told the site.
The move only worked to some extent, as she was hit in the hand with a broken bottle.
In addition to being in the way of the flying fluids, she also got trampled by another clubgoer who stepped on her head.
'I plan on suing the club over the incident,' she told TMZ, and is not ruling out a suit against the millionaire rappers at the heart of the incident.
'I'm trying to see my best legal options,' she said.
The aftermath: Broken glass can be seen strewn across the bar following the Chris and Drake fight
Veronica is not the only one taking her claims to court, as another one of the five victims has lawyered up.
Ingrid Gutierrez, a 21-year-old model who was at the club with Brown and his entourage, has spoken to several media outlets in keeping with the advice of her attorney.
'I was on the couch, covering my face, because I'd been hit on the head by a bottle and my head was bleeding. I thought I was going to die,' she told News Core.
Unsurprisingly considering she is a friend of the controversial Brown, notorious for his felony assault on former girlfriend Rihanna, Ms Gutierrez says that Drake was the one who turned the bickering into a violent showdown.

The situation started when Brown sent a bottle of expensive champagne over to Drake's table, allegedly as an alcoholic peace offering to the rapper who has also been romantically linked to Rihianna.

Ms Gutierrez says that 'I then saw a waitress come back with a piece of paper and gave it to Chris,' which was supposedly a note that read 'I'm f****** the love of your life, deal with it'.
'(Brown) looked upset and just threw it on the floor,' she said.
'(Drake and his entourage) were giving him the middle finger. They got into each other's faces and were shouting at each other.
'Chris told Drake to f*** off, and the next thing I could hear is the sound of smashed glass and mayhem started.'
The police investigation into the incident is ongoing, and as a result there are reports that there will be added security at Drake's Jones Beach concert tonight.
The New York Post reported this morning that police may arrest the rapper for reckless endangerment at the concert, but police sources tell MailOnline that those reports have neither been confirmed nor denied. The likelihood of an arrest seems very slim at this time.
Veronica is the second unconnected bystander to release photos of her injuries, as the first was arguably the most serious.
Hollie C, an Australian tourist, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital after she was smashed in the head with a flying bottle during the fight.
