San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing a New York City club and its operators for $20 million over a scratched retina he says he suffered during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage.
The NBA player and a team of lawyers filed the suit in State Supreme Court, 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.
What an arrogant prick. These people abuse their civil rights left and right. How about you accept responsibility for not getting out of harm’s way before it went down. You’re suing because these two were allowed in the club? if you knew that was a dangerous idea or you were at risk of being in harm’s way, you should have left.
