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.

He's suing Bonaduce? He's the one who initiated the attack!! When the judge laughs it out of court, please make sure we get to see the pictures of Jonny crying--again. It's like suing someone who YOU hit, because you hurt your hand when you hit them.

Sad    

perhaps Fairplay you can take responsibilty for your own actions. havent met too many men who like other men to junp on them throw their legs around and then for lack of better words .... hump them. Sorry to say what you got was harsh but you did ask for it. Own Up.

PLEEEEEEAAASE, this jerk jumps on Danny onstage dryhumping his face and when Danny throws the guy off (I say defending himself) he's going to sue. I'm not a fan of either of them, but when you do stupid stuff, expect stupid stuff to happen to you.

I find it somewhat amusing that people say Jonny did something wrong..."by jumping on Danny and humping....." Everyone got a short memory....Danny goes for that sort of thing....remember the HO (male) that Danny was caught with....along with all of his drugs? Having viewed the tape, I would definitely side with Jonny....and hold Bonaduce responsible for HIS actions.....HE was not supposed to be on stage.....it was either HIS drugs or Alcohol or both that precipitated the 'assult'. Bonaduce should have the rest of his bank account drained....along with the others named in the suit.
'nuff said!!!!!

To - 76. I find it somewhat amusing that people say Jonny did something wrong..."by jumping on Danny and humping....." Everyone got a short memory....Danny goes for that sort of thing....remember the HO (male) that Danny was caught with.

And I suppose that just because a woman is a prostitute, if she was raped, she was just asking for it? What a loser you are!!!

Steve and Santiyrules- I think its assuming you find jumping on men and 'Humping" appropriate. Hope the ladies in your lives know about this. As for the prostitute and rape comment, no she woulnd't be asking for it but she would be well within her right to defend herself against unwelcome advances.... Sorry Losers, you lose

What an idiot. Johnny, if you want to sue someone, sue the stage for hitting you in the face. It's not Danny's fault you jumped him, he never hit your or anything. He simply threw you off of him in self defense. He could have easily kicked your ass like that drag queen in Phoenix.

Jon's a grwon man...he did this to himself!    

I saw the video. It looked to me that Fairplay attacked Bonaduce and Bonaduce was just reacting. Perhaps I missed something but that was what it looked like to me.
