Tony Parker is using singer Chris Brown's fight with Frank Ocean as evidence in his $20 million lawsuit filed against the owners of a Manhattan nightclub where the San Antonio Spurs star was injured in his eye during a bottle-throwing brawl last summer. TMZ reports that Parker has filed new legal documents in his lawsuit against the nightclub W.i.P. — the site of a reported dust-up between Brown and his fellow rapper Drake's posses.   During the wild melee, a shard of flying glass went flying into the NBA star's left eye. After a possible career-ending scare, the Spurs guard had to wear protective goggles while playing for the France team in the London Olympics because of the injury. Parker is suing the management of Entertainment Enterprises, Ltd. for the millions claiming they should have never let Brown into the celebrity hangout. Parker is now using Brown's alleged volatile temper as evidence in the lawsuit, citing the January 27th Brown-Ocean parking lot altercation outside a Los Angeles recording studio. The misdemeanor battery charges against Brown were dropped when Ocean decided not to press charges. According to TMZ, Parker claims the reported Brown-Ocean fight proves that Brown is, "unfit to socialize in places where he's likely to fly off the handle."  His lawyers believe there is enough evidence to prove Brown should have been denied entry the night of the W.i.P. brawl — which allegedly started over the sultry singer Rihanna. Brown is still on probation for his 2009 assault on Rihanna.
