NBA's Tony Parker Sues W.i.P. Nightclub For $20 Million Over Drake & Chris Brown Fight

Tony Parker sues after shards from a glass bottle lacerated his cornea.

San Antonio Spurs player Tony Parker, who was injured in Drake and Chris Brown’s fight last week, has sued W.i.P. nightclub in New York City, New York for $20 million.

According to TMZ, the NBA star filed suit yesterday claiming that the security was negligent for allowing the fight between the artists to occur. He was hit with stray shards of glass from the bottles that were thrown, which lacerated his cornea.

Parker, whose NBA career could be affected by his injury, claims that the club management knew that there was "bad blood between Drake and Brown” yet continued to supply the artists and their crews with alcohol, despite the fact that some were “visibly intoxicated.”

It is possible that Drake and Brown could be added as defendants in the suit, but Parker’s lawyer explains that he’s waiting on the results from the police investigation as well as surveillance tape before making that decision.

    I read a couple of the comments and I can't get over the fact how ignorant and stupid some people are. Lets get some things sorted out. Tony Parker is a professional basketball player for the Spurs which is a top 4 team in the league. He is the best player on the Spurs and his eye being damaged could put that team into a big mess statistically and financially. Let's not forget that he also plays for the French national team as well. If anyone else had their eye damaged for something they didn't have a part in they would be suing as well. Secondly, since Chris Brown is on probation we can come to the conclusion that his part in the fight was probably minimal because he doesn't want to end up in jail or in the courts again. This incident leaves the whole YMCMB camp at fault. Drake is probably worried because all the reports have him as the instigator for the brawl. This is probably why Meek, Wayne and Drake are all reporting not to comment on what happened because $20 million is at stake now. Also, reports previously indicated that Chris Brown had tweeted that people threw bottles at him which means he didn't do it. Someone is going to have to pay up for this stunt. I still wonder why rappers endanger people who have nothing to do with their beefs.

      It's not just rappers, it's people. Innocent bystanders are always collateral damage. As for Drake, he was always signed to Universal (i.e. problem with Sylvia Rhone) so I've always known this YMCMB thing was a facade. I see this as the nail in the coffin and he will jump to another UMG imprint.

    And this is why Chris Brown deleted those tweets, Birdman came out talking, Wayne came out asking for peace, Meek said he doesn't know anything. They are ALL liable right now. They all better hope The San Antonio Spurs and the French Olympic Team don't join this lawsuit. And if Tony has to have even one eye surgery, names will have to be dropped. Where's all the people who said the club isn't responsible?

      Yes they have been leaving out bits and pieces, that's why I've been reading the info from actual newspaper sites with real journalists instead of rap & gossip websites. The girl who got stitches was at Fab's table.

      Alright we see eye to eye now. Most of these sites are trying to demonize Chris and have been leaving out bits and pieces such as that. Drake is gonna be fucked unless the videos prove otherwise

      It's already known that Tony was only there to hang out with his friend Chris. And Tony has said he and his team caught knuckles to the face. If Drake's people messed up, Wayne and Baby will have to pay. Do you see where I'm coming from now? #damagecontrol

      @first Anon, that wasn't a diss in the least, but Parker did vouch for Chris, so it's another strike for Drake. DX jus "somehow" missed that statement apparently

      Premises liability holds owners and occupiers of property legally responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on that property. ^ no matter how much you want to point blame at the actual brawling parties, the establishment will still be liable and they (should) know this because they (should) have i_n_s_u_r_a_n_c_e for things like this. That's why you see the LAWYERS targeting the club. And if you need examples, Club New York had to pay in the Shyne case, the casino had to pay injured bystanders when the big biker brawl happened. People in NYC even have to get insurance when they have contractor's working in their place of residence, the law applies there too. And I'm not relying on hhdx, I can clearly see these people are being advised by lawyers.
