And the avalanche from the now infamous brawl at W.i.P. nightclub just continues to get bigger and bigger.
NBA star, who was present at the nightclub that fateful night and was struck in the eye by broken glass from flying bottles, is planning to sue the NYC hotspot for $20 million. TMZ reports that the lawsuit, filed Thursday in New York Supreme Court, states that Parker feels that and Drake should’ve never been let into the same establishment, knowing the bad blood that resides between the two over shared lover, Rihanna.
More after the jump.
Tony suffered lacerations to the cornea in the craziness of it all and the brawl eventually led to the club being shut down indefinitely.
More from TMZ regarding the suit:
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.”
The high amount of the lawsuit comes from the fact that Tony is currently in the middle of his $50 million dollar contract with the San Antonio Spurs. Because of the injury, he hasn’t been able to play and has to possibly postpone joining the Olympic basketball team this year because of it.
As for whether Drake and Chris will be co-defendants, that is yet to be seen: according to Tony’s lawyer, they’re waiting for the police investigation to wrap up as well as a viewing of the surveillance video from that night at W.i.P., although it’s been said there’s nothing to be seen via the grainy and dark images.
