NBA Player Tony Parker Files $20 Million Lawsuit Against Club For Injury During Chris Brown/Drake Club Fight
We knew that a lawsuit would eventually follow after the very tragic and near deadly club fight that took place last week at a New York club in which members from Drakes’ camp and Chris Browns camp were involved in a extremely violent wine bottle fight that resulted in the complete destruction of the club as well as 10 injuries including the injury of a foreign tourist, a bodyguard and Tony Parker.
Due to receiving a scratched retina during the fight [how I don’t know] the San Antonio Spurs player has since filed a lawsuit against Club W.I.P in the amount of $20 million. In the lawsuit, Parker claims that the club is liable for his injury due to their lack of proper security and supervision. Parker is claiming that had the club been better guarded and controlled things would not have gotten as far as they did and he would not have been injured.
The suit was filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Thursday. It says the W.i.P club in SoHo and its operators were negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to take place.
Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among eight injured during the fight inside the club last week. Police say members of Drake’s entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The fight escalated and bottles were thrown.
The lawsuit alleges club management, knowing there was “bad blood between Drake and Brown,” was driven by the almighty buck and continued selling alcohol to the participants in the brawl, despite the fact that some were “visibly intoxicated.” [...]
As for whether Chris Brown or Drake will be added as defendants, Parker’s lawyer, David Jaroslawicz, tells TMZ … he’s waiting for the results of the police investigation. He also wants to review the surveillance tape before making his decision.
This news of his lawsuit comes only days after Tony Parker made a public announcement that the injury he sustained during the club fight would have no bearing on his ability to play in in the French Olympics set to begin June 20. Outside of having to sit out for a week, Tony claimed to be perfectly fine and able to compete with the rest of the team.
