Jonny Says

It's Not Fair,

Sues Bonaduce

10/9/2007 8:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that "Survivor" reality star Jonny Fairplay has filed suit against Danny Bonaduce, FOX Reality Channel and others for what he calls "an unjustified and surprise assault" at last week's Really Awards.

In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Fairplay claims that after he was thrown over Danny's shoulders, "Instead of immediately calling an ambulance to care for [Fairplay] or taking other action, the defendants -- the television channel, the producers and the owner of the venue hosting the event -- did nothing."

Fairplay is suing for battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and negligent supervision.

Reps for FOX Reality and Bonaduce's people had no comment at this time.

I really think it's Johnny's fault, he should have never jumped on Danny. Plus Danny looked pretty drunk.

I am poster 58    

Danny has GLAZED EYES and is still usin'. He is not foolin' anyone. He can say all that he wants how clean and sober he is, but his eyes tell the story. I am glad Gretchen got your money and divorced you. She is not much better, but apples never fall far from the tree.

I'm glad to see everyone agrees that Fairplay deserved what he got. He's a huge idiot.

The fact that it is all on video won't help this Fairplay person. What about the prosecutor not filing a charge? Man up; you jumped on Bonaduce so quit your crying. So what if you have a boo-boo mouth? You could have called 911 yourself, a**hole- you weren't unconcious. WAAAAAAAA!!! Shut your yap.

any guy who dry humps anoher guy, well- he can expect to get his face bashed one way or another. He committed an assault and battery on Bonaduce, He should be in jail.

No way. He should've just bitch slapped or just shoved him away. It was dangerous and showed reckless disregard to throw him like that. He could have been paralyzed or killed had he fell on his head. And they should've responded appropriately and gotten him attention. They were completely cruel and unsympathetic. Yes, it was stupid and undignified but Danny is the one who started the whole incident by walking up on stage and taunting him and Johnny didn't deserve to have his life put in danger. From what he says he had more damage than just lost teeth. Fox should pay and so should Bonaduce. That idiot is out of control and needs a wake up call.

Low lifers. Why in the world would they attend such a sorry event to begin with?

Fairplay sure doesn't like to play fair (sorry, couldn't resist)!! He thinks can jump & hump someone with a physically intrusive move, but his target can't respond accordingly?? I hope the civil judge is reasonable as the criminal judge, and tosses the case same way Danny tossed him. That pesky weirdo is damn lucky he didn't get worse!

case will be thrown out due to the video footage. Whoever this Johnny flaming guy is, he assaulted B first by jumping onto him and humping his stomach.

That johnny "fella" is a low self-esteemed man-bitch.

And what Fairplay did to Bonaduce wasn't a surprise assault? Sorry; any guy grinding his pet monkey against my person would get tossed over my head, too.

And I should add Fox and Bonoduce WILL pay one way or the other. It may never get to court but Fairplay will still get a lot of $ and they will be out legal and settlement as they should be. What Johnny did, tacky and moronic as it was, was in keeping with the formula of the show. Serious injury by a roid rage goon was not.

of course they did nothing, you're a piece of crap and they couldnt stop laughing for at least 10 minutes after it happened FAIRplay. you're human garbage---GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!
