Johnny Manziel reportedly got into it with another patron at Jewel Nightclub at the Aria resort in Las Vegas.
Did the fight also signal the end of his friendship with Drake?
Just a couple of weeks ago, Manziel promoted Drake’s new album “Views from the Six” on Instagram. The quarterback’s relationship with Drake goes back several years. Manziel’s still regularly spotted with Drake’s friend Ryan. But, the rapper seems to be drifting further and further away. Now, it seems the six god doesn’t care if Manziel’s even allowed in the club with him.
Johnny Manziel was removed from a Vegas club after the former NFL QB allegedly hauled off and punched a guy.
Witnesses inside Jewel Nightclub at the Aria tell TMZ Johnny was in a VIP booth near the stage Friday night. Drake showed up for a surprise performance and club goers started to push and shove to get up front. Our sources say Johnny got pushed and turned and slugged the club goer.
You can see in the video the guy Johnny punched tries going after Manziel … but a security guard steps in between to break things up.
However, we’re told Manziel got the boot shortly after the scuffle.
The video shows the altercation but it’s hard to really see what went down. Mostly, it’s just a really good view of the Canadian flag.
Also, who brings the Canadian flag to the club? Sure, Drake’s Canadian but his performance was a surprise.
Manziel used to be in Drake’s inner circle.

The rapper even wrote the song, “Draft Day” in honor of Johnny. In turn, Manziel rocks the OVO tattoo on his wrist.

Manziel once called visiting Drake in Toronto for a weekend of partying a “lifelong goal.” He’s spent a significant amount of time with the OVO crew.

From social media, Manziel doesn’t look like the type of friend who gets kicked out of the VIP booth during a Drake performance, regardless of his behavior.
Manziel’s weekend in Vegas seemed pretty harmless until the reports of a fight. He attended a Wet Republic pool party and while he looked notably thinner, it was a pretty low-key day for Manziel. He played basketball with his dog who made the trip to Sin City.
