Bas­ket­ball’s Parker sues af­ter Drake-brown brawl

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is su­ing a New York City club and its op­er­a­tors for $20 mil­lion over a scratched retina 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 take place.

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 those named in the law­suit.
