Tony Parker Lawsuit

Nightclub Fires Back ...

We Can't Predict BRAWLS!

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.

They didn't have to specifically know there was bad blood between them. Simply having two big groups of people with a bunch of giant goon bodyguards should be a red flag. Doesn't virtually every music awards show featuring rappers end in a brawl?

The fight happened on private property (WIP nightclub) and whether or not the property owners were involved in the fight (or better yet....LACK OF INVOLVEMENT THAT ALLOWED THE MELEE TO ESCALATE OT THE POINT OF INNOCENT PATRONS BEING INJURED AND REQUIRING MEDICAL ATTENTION) they still are culpable for the injuries sustained by patrons on WIP's private property. No different than if a guest falls and injures themselves n your property....you can be sued and heald legally liable for the damages.

No wonder Eva left this idiot – he’s an idiot. No one is responsible for a grown man’s actions, except that man. Not the club, not the patrons, not even YOU Tony. You went to the club voluntarily knowing that people drink and get rowdy and sometimes fight. Get over it.
