Several people were injured in the Chris Brown vs. Drake bottle fight at club W.i.P in NYC, and we all knew the lawsuits were going to start rolling in, but I don’t think anyone saw this one coming. The victim, who is already a multi-millionaire, is suing the club owners for $20 million for his injuries! Have you guessed who it is yet?
The victim who is suing is none other than San Antonio Spurs all-star Tony Parker! The NBA player has filed a $20 million lawsuit against the owners of W.i.P today, blaming the owners for the “corneal laceration of the left eye and other injuries” he suffered in the bottle-throwing brawl.
Parker’s lawyer, David Jaroslawicz, said the extent of Parker’s wounds aren’t yet known, but noted eye injuries “certainly don’t improve your outside shot.” The suit does not name Brown or Drake, who have both dated Rihanna, as defendants but blames the club for creating the combustible combination.
“The defendants were reckless, careless and negligent in permitting Drake’s entourage and Brown’s entourage to be in the club at the same time despite known tension between the two,” the filing says. “She’s been known, like Helen of Troy, to cause trouble,” Jaroslawicz said of Rihanna.
Jaroslawicz said it’s the club’s fault for selling both camps alcohol and giving them bottle service. “You’re throwing gasoline on the flames,” Jaroslawicz said. He said he had yet to see their bar tab, “but it’s probably more than kids’ tuition for the year.”
The suit says Parker, ex-hubby of actress Eva Longoria, was “with my friend Chris Brown” when the problems started. “Me and my friends took some punches,” Parker said. “They started throwing bottles everywhere,” he said.
Parker, slated to play with the French team at the Summer Olympics, said he’ll be sidelined for a week as he heals with the aid of a “therapeutic” contact lens. He said that while his eye felt all right at first, “it started getting worse,” and by the time he landed in Paris to work out with the French team, “it was really hurting so I went to the ER.” He said he’s had to wear a “therapeutic” contact lens.
Wow, Tony Parker was hurt in the melee, but man, he’s already a millionaire. Is it right for him to sue the club, or should he be going after Drake and Chris Brown instead?
