Tony Parker Lawsuit

Club Sues Brown & Drake ...

They Should Pay!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0317_brown_parker_drake_tmz_gettyThe owners of the nightclub where Chris Brown and Drake brawled last year are doing whatever they can to get out of paying Tony Parker for his injuries ... saying the two rappers should cut him a check if he wins his lawsuit ... and not them. 

Parker, an NBA star with the San Antonio Spurs, was one of several people who claim they were injured in the June 2012 melee that went down at W.i.P. and he filed a $20 million lawsuit against the club shortly thereafter.

But the owners of W.i.P. (who are facing several lawsuits) filed docs last week in New York saying Parker's beef should be with Brown and Drake ... claiming they were the ones who "contributed to, instigated, participated and/or engaged" in the fight. 

The club wants any and all damages awarded to Parker to come from Brown and Drake. 

The case is still pending.

Why on earth should the club pay when it was clearly two hoods who started the fight? It looks like Tony Parker is just trying to sue whomever has the deepest pockets. Teach the thugs that there are consequencs to their actions.. or at least there should be!

1st off 20 million dollars is ridiculous. People especially celebrities kill me with these outrageous $$ amounts for damages. If he was truly hurt he should only receive compensation for his medical care and if the injury caused him to be unemployed for the time lost. If it affected his career and earnings long term then I could see that amount but if not he's ridiculous.

As far as the club why would they only go after Chris and Drake and not all the parties involved in the brawl. They go after the big money both of which may or may not have actively participated in said brawl.

The whole situation is ridiculous

That makes sense. They were acting like N*gga thugs. They caused the issues. They're responsible for it. Hit them where it hurts most, right in their wallets, since for whatever reason they were cleared of criminal charges. IMO, both should be rotting on Rikers.

Holy f*ck, I support Drake in the lawsuit against these guys -- and after seeing the aftermath in the club, the club really did also have a responsibility here to get this under control faster and should be liable.

I'm still confused as to why anyone is suing the club instead of Chris and Drake. This is all their fault completely. There is no reason for the club to have know the brawl was going to occur.

TMZ why do you keep calling it a brawl? Call it what it was a bunch of sissies with latent homosexual urges towards each other throwing things. Neither of these creampuffs have ever been in a brawl before.

Legally, the club is liable. It was up to them to control what was happening on their premises. Security should have either prevented these thugs from engaging in the club or kept these known enemies from entering in the first place. Other clubs observe right of refusal to undesirable patrons.
