Spurs’ Tony Parker sues NYC club over eye injury
San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing a New York City
club and its operators for $20 million over a scratched cornea he
says he suffered during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and
members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage.
The suit was filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on
Thursday. It says the W.i.P club in SoHo and its operators were
negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to
Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among eight
injured during the fight inside the club last week. Police say
members of Drake’s entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The
fight escalated and bottles were thrown.
There was no answer at phone numbers listed as affiliated with
