Is Tony Parker Wrong For Suing The NYC Nightclub W.i.P. $20 Million For His Eye Injury?

Submitted by on June 26, 2012 – 10:06 am6 Comments

When the news broke that Tony Parker was suing the W.i.P. nightclub in New York City for $20 million late last week, there were a lot of people out there who, understandably, were upset with him. In his lawsuit, Parker blamed the eye injury he’d received during the Chris Brown and Drake altercation at the club earlier this month on the W.i.P. staff. He felt as though they shouldn’t have allowed both Breezy and Drizzy into the club at the same time. But, a lot of people felt as though that wasn’t a valid argument for Parker to make. After all, as the W.i.P. representatives said themselves in a response to Parker, the singer and rapper aren’t exactly Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac. They didn’t have a known history of violence between them. So, if they both wanted to party W.i.P., why shouldn’t the club’s staff have allowed them to do that?

But then, over the weekend, Parker released a statement on the lawsuit on his own personal website to explain the lawsuit. And, we have to admit, it made us rethink our original position on the matter. Essentially, Parker used the statement to explain that a French doctor told him that, as a result of getting hit in the eye with some flying glass at the club that night, he very well could have lost his eye. Further, there’s a chance he could still lose his eye, if he doesn’t get surgery on the eye to repair it. There’s also a chance he could miss the 2012 Summer Olympics with the eye injury. He’s planning on meeting with an eye specialist in the United States soon to address the matter.

And, all of that info left us thinking: Was TP actually right for filing a large lawsuit against W.i.P.? Did we jump to the wrong conclusion when we found out he was suing? The truth is that he won’t receive anywhere close to $20 million for his injury. But, he’ll probably receive something and it’ll probably be substantial enough to raise a few eyebrows and get people talking about how to avoid situations like the one that went down at W.i.P. Bottom line: No one should be injured—let alone damn near blinded—during a night out on the town. Not NBA players, not celebrities, and definitely not regular people like you and me. And, if Parker’s lawsuit helps drive that point home, then we’re definitely cool with it.

    The trouble with all of this is the Gindi’s who own Greenhouse and WiP filed the same “Legal Bar Brawl” lawsuit at Smith and Mills on N Moore over a firew because it turns out Smith and Mills Certificate of Occupancy was not valid and the liquor license was fraud. They lost when they were caught lying to the judge after falslely accusing a girl of the same thing they’re accusing Chris Brown and Drake in their other club now with the same lawyer David Jaroslawicz? The fraud suit was thrown out.

    These artist need to lawyer up. Jaroslawicz is under investigation for fraud and corruption in the Anna Gristina madame scandal. This lawyer is not on the up and up!

    Are you joking man? Tony Parker’s lawyer David Jaroslawicz is a known ambulance chaser that shakes down famous and well heeled defendants based on their own notoriety holding their notoriety hostage in the press for ransom while he keeps making up stories on baseless claims until Drake and Chris Brown pay up. They sued the club so the club sues Brown and Drake. The loon lawyer David Jaroslawicz has been disbarred. This is a shake down!

    David Jaroslawicz represents the Gindi’s who own Century 21 Department Stores who own Emm who owns WiP and Tenjune for YEARS! Tony Parker you just hired the owner of Greenhouse and WiP’s own lawyer! What are you thinking man? The owner of the club just used you as a pawn to shake down Chros Brown and Drake for the Gindi’s, so the club or the Gindi’s can now sue Brown and Parker in a scam. Jaroslawicz is scam artist. He is the under the DA’s probe by the Corruption Unit investigation into Anna Gristina madame scandal for money laundering, narcotics and prostitution via illegal businesses aka bara who had to hire Ben Brafman to represent David Jaroslawicz Parker’s lawyer.

    Parker you were had! ! ! Do tell Tony . . . .did this dirt bag low life lawyer who has shaken down Charleze Theron, the Sultan of Bruni, his neighbors and his clients famous neighbors includng Robert Deniro call you to sue the club? Jaroslawicz represents Emm, TenJune, Marquee, The Jane, Smith and Mills, Beatrice Inn, Tao and Lavo. you re in bed with the Syrain Jews in the Rabbi scandal in New Jersey in A Community Shaken WSJ. They are billionaires Tony. Why didnt you just sue the Gindi’s if you wanted to be paid for your injury’s instad of filing fraud lawsuits with Jarolsawicz? Jaroslawicz never wins darling. He is only capable of fraud and scamming.
