Chris Brown & Drake Brawl

Tony Parker Sues Club

for $20 MILLION

NBA superstar Tony Parker -- who was injured when Drake and Chris Brown's posses squared off -- is suing the NYC nightclub for $20 million, claiming it should never have let Rihanna's exes in at the same time ... and Chris Brown as well as Drake could end up as defendants. 

The San Antonio Spurs star filed the lawsuit Thursday in NY State Supreme Court ... against W.i.P. Nightclub -- and in the suit he alleges the club's security was negligent for allowing the brawl to ever happen.

Parker says he was hit by shards of glass and suffered lacerations to his cornea when bottles started flying in the fight last week.

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."

Parker's injury is a huge deal because it could affect his NBA career, and -- more immediately -- his performance in the Olympics with the French national basketball team.

As for why he would sue for $20 MILLION? Parker is in the middle of a $50 million contract with the Spurs.

As for whether Chris Brown or Drake will be added as defendants, Parker's lawyer, David Jaroslawicz, tells TMZ ... he's waiting for the results of the police investigation.  He also wants to review the surveillance tape before making his decision.

How about the thugs involved pay!!! He is not suing the people involved because they are black, and he wants to protect his own. I am sick of stupid lawsuits against places like the club for not having a crystal ball to predict what these thugs do.

This is a baseless lawsuit. It's not up to the club owner to make sure that these two so called men would behave themselves like adults. The Judge will laugh this out of the courtroom. Sorry Tony you were in the wrong place at the wrong time and it was your choice to be there, you weren't forced.

I agree that the reasoning is wrong. But the fact he got hurt while in their club is grounds for a lawsuit.

I dont see how the club would know people would behave like animals over a girl.
Tony is the one that seemed to know they were both having a relationship with the same woman.
If I were him , I would have used common sense and got out of there, particulary since he seems to have known what the reaction by these two groups would have been.
Let him sue the 2 rich idiots who behaved badly.
