After injuring his eye in the crossfire of glass bottles from the much-discussed scrap between the entourages of Chris Brown and Drake last week, Tony Parker is taking legal action against the New York City nightclub where it all took place. And he is hoping to see massive dollar signs come his way (well, maybe with only one of his eyes for now). From the New York Daily News:

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.

Parker was a bystander in the club when the fight broke out and reportedly had glass debris from bottles broken during the tussle end up in his eye. He was recently seen at a press conference in France wearing sunglasses to mask his injury.

According to reports, the brawl was over Rihanna, whom both entertainers — either notoriously and not-so-notoriously — have been romantically linked to at one point. While Parker is saying W.i.P was negligent, we don’t see how it’s the club’s fault that Rihanna is allegedly such a floozy.
