Last week when a fight broke out between Chris Brown, and Drake at a New York City Club one of the guys injured was San Antonio Spurs Point Guard Tony Parker.
Parker who was struck in the eye by shards of glass during the brawl originally told reporters he was ok, and would be able to participate in the French National team’s practices leading up to the London Olympics in less than 5 weeks.
Oh how things of changed! Parker has decided that the injuries were more serious than originally thought, and is going after the owner of the Artistic new club where the fight between Chris Browns and Drizzy Drake occurred.
The club known as W.i.P. (Work in Progress) and owner Barry Mullineaux are the target of the $20 million lawsuit.
According to KENS5 San Antonio the Lawsuit says “Parker claims he suffered “a corneal laceration of the left eye and other injuries” at the W.i.P. nightclub during the overnight hours between June 14 and June 15, and the injuries left him “unable to attend to his usual duties and vocation,” according to the lawsuit.”
Parker who has 3 years left on his contract with $37.5m remaining on his four year contract, is worried about his pro basketball career due to his scratched Cornea.
The lawsuit claims that the owners and operators of the nightclub were “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” and contends the owners failed to provide “sufficient and efficient security.”
According to statements by eyewitnesses, the incident between Chris Brown and Drake started when Drake and Brown argued over Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna, whom Drake had a brief relationship with and Brown was convicted of assaulting three years ago.
Reports are now indicating that Drake initiated the fight as he made a derogatory comment to Chris about Rihanna, according to HollywoodLife.com. A bottle was subsequently thrown at Chris and cut him on the chin, although it is unclear whether this happened before or after this video was filmed.
While the actual fight details remain unclear, as reps for both parties are blaming the other for the incident, video footage (seen below) show the altercation taking place.
Many will question why the NBA start doesn’t go after Drake, and Chris Brown for their negligent behavior. Considering club managers should not be held accountable for the actions of individuals and their entourage during their night of drinking on the town that got out of hand during a dispute over an ex girlfriend.
Who do you believe should be held accountable for the fight? The club or the guilty parties involved in the fight?
