Tony Parker Lawsuit

Nightclub Fires Back ...

We Can't Predict BRAWLS!

EXCLUSIVE

Tony Parker is insane to think the people at W.i.P. nightclub should've known about the "bad blood" between Chris Brown and Drake BEFORE their infamous brawl ... this according to new legal docs filed by the club.

Parker had sued the club for $20 mil ... claiming it should pay for the damage he sustained when he took a shard of glass to the eye in the bottle-throwing melee back in June.

In his lawsuit, Parker claimed W.i.P. should have been aware of the "bad blood" between the two stars ... and never should have let them inside the establishment on that fateful night.

But now the nightclub is firing back, claiming Parker's got it all wrong ... because it's not the club's job to keep tabs on its patrons' personal lives -- so it can't be held responsible for not knowing about the beef.

Parker also claims the nightclub supplied booze to extremely intoxicated patrons, which helped fuel the brawl that led to the basketball player's injuries -- but the club says Parker's got no case ... so he can pound sand.

W.i.P. wants the lawsuit dismissed in its entirety. A judge has yet to rule.

Don't go to clubs where this 'element' congregates and you have nothing to worry about, Mr. Parker.

Since he can predict the future, he should have known they were going to fight and left before getting shanked in the eye.

Tony is reminding me of Vince Neil. Where's my fu**en car. I want my car. Acting like a spoiled baby. How the heck is a club suppose to know about 2 groups who are beefing. Tony is not in his right state of mind. After all he broke up with Eva. What's next. You going to sue the weather man because you left your car window down after he said it wasn't going to rain and it did. Go fly a kite with a key on it.

TP is an idiot for this lawsuit. Next thing you know is, he will sue the Olympics for his team losing to the USA because he didn't know other teams would beat his.

Tony Parker, along with TMZ, assumes the rest of the world thinks the life and loves of rappers are important and meaningful so they're breathlessly keeping up with who's fighting whom. Grow up, Tony, and accept that if you hang in clubs with thugs, you might get in the middle of a fight. Not the nightclub's responsibility or fault.

It's the responsibility of any establishments to make sure all of their customers enjoy themselves in a safe, secure environment. If they cannot guarantee this, they should be held liable to any injuries and/or inconveniences suffered by said customers.

So no dice, W.i.P. - you gonna pay, no doubt about it.

Parker knew more about the "bad blood" than the club, so why didn't HE avoid the situation?

If the establishment is to be held responsible for keeping it safe for everyone. then they cannot let Black People into the club.When in groups its always fights with gangsta/thugs.

Since Parker was aware of the bad blood, He should have removed HIMSELF. The lawsuit is hog wash. I hope it is dismissed. I also hope they sue Parker for the bad press.

If I was the judge I would throw this lawsuit out and instruct the club to sue Tony Parker. If he knew the issues with Chris Brown and Drake, why didn't he leave? Also, why isn't he suing them?

20 million?? Really?? My first husband was KILLED serving our country, my kids and I didn't get 20 million. A shard of glass in the eye because HE CHOSE to be there is his own fault and certainly not worthy of a payday.
