Among all the talk of the Chris Brown/Drake nightclub brawl, not many know that NBA Spurs star Tony Parker was there and injured in the melee. The ex-husband of actress Eva Longoria suffered a lacerated cornea, a severe eye injury that could hinder the NBA star’s career. As a result, he’s filed a lawsuit against the club alleging that if the proper precautions would have been in place, the fight would have never happened.
Official filing include statements such as, “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.”
In a twisted case of “guilty till proven innocent,” Parker’s lawyer David Jaroslawicz includes Rihanna as also being at fault, even though she wasn’t there the night in question. “She’s been known, like Helen of Troy, to cause trouble,” he adds. Jaroslawicz is also blaming it on the alcohol, insinuating that the abundant drinking offered by club’s VIP bottle service was like “throwing gas on the flames.”
Parker will be benched for a week during the Summer Olympics as part of the U.S. basketball team this summer while he heals his injury with a therapeutic contact lens.
