Tony Parker to Court

I Told You Chris Brown

Was a Violent Thug

Chris Brown
's volcanic temper -- in particular his recent blowup with Frank Ocean -- has ironically become NBA star Tony Parker's secret weapon in a lawsuit against a New York City nightclub ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Parker has filed a $20 million lawsuit against W.i.P. nightclub, claiming it should never have let Brown in last June -- the night his posse fought with Drake's people ... a fight that ended with a shard of glass piercing Tony's cornea

Tony has just filed new legal docs in his lawsuit, claiming Chris Brown's parking-spot fiasco last week with Frank Ocean is proof he's unfit to socialize in places where he's likely to fly off the handle.

You'll recall ... the fight between team Brown and team Drake at W.i.P. erupted because both men were romantically linked to Rihanna.

And speaking of Rihanna ... Tony's new legal docs make reference to her brutal beating ... at the hands of one Chris Brown. 

Tony believes there was more than enough evidence on the table to deny Chris a table at W.i.P. on the violent night in question.

I remember when he flew into a violent rage at Robin Roberts on Good Morning America including smashing things and kicking his way out of the studio. If you can't be nice to Robin Roberts, of all people, you have a huge problem. Chris Brown is a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal. Actually, that's insulting Neanderthals...let's just say he's a violent degenerate who should do a long stint in prison with no soap on a rope.

Drake is the one that threw a bottle. People are taking advantage of Chris Brown's past and expecting not to protect himself or say anything against agitators or instigators (i.e. little girl frank ocean). None of these guys are innocent and I know Tony Parker ain't talking about nobody, because he is NOT no choir boy ...just ask eva.

bogus lawsuit. WIP cant be expected to research the criminal histories of every guest. Nor can it be reasonably assumed that WIP was aware of any violent tendencies at the time of the incident. If getting into a fight bars someone from the club then they can argue that every altercation Parker has ever gotten into on the court should have compelled him to a)excuse himself from the premises or B)placed him like company with Chris Brown and a dozen or so rappers he knew/knows to be violent

Why should Chris be denied a table but not Drake who actually started the fight and threw the bottle? Really this is getting old...

Why is he trying to blame this on Chris Brown who did not even start the fight. Should we ban married men from clubs who have a history of cheating? This can also cause harm in clubs, at home and break up families.

Just like Lindsay Lohan everything Brown does is someone's else's fault. It's just a matter of time until he seriously injures of kills someone. He should be in jail and off the street along with all his thug friends that cover for the wimp.

The only problem with this is that Chris Brown wasn't considered a suspect in the club brawl, he was classified as a victim. I understand what Tony is trying to do but the incident he's suing about isn't anyone's fault but people throwing bottles (who ever they were). IDK

Maybe these boys need to surround themselves with better crews because the "posses" seem to always be the initiators of the drama.

It's not the clubs fault either, dumb stuff happens in clubs all the time.
