Tony Parker blames the owners of W.i.P club for the injuries he got in the nasty bar brawl between Chris Brown and Drake. The San Antonio Spurs guard has filed $20 million lawsuit, slamming the owners for allowing the Rihanna love rivals to be in the same room.

"The defendants were reckless, careless and negligent in permitting Drake's entourage and Brown's entourage to be in the club at the same time despite known tension between the two," the NBA star complains in the papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

His lawyer David Jaroslawicz additionally claims the owners were "throwing gasoline on the flames" by selling both camps alcohol and giving them bottle service.

The former husband of Eva Longoria sustained "corneal laceration of the left eye and other injuries" when leaving the club. His attorney said the extent of his wounds is still to be determined, but noted that eye injury "certainly don't improve your outside shot."

Parker said in the lawsuit that he didn't sit with either group, but he previously revealed he was "with my friend Chris Brown" when scuffle happened. "They started throwing bottles everywhere," he testified in a press conference recently. "It started getting worse."

The basketball player was wearing "therapeutic" contact lens to help ease the pain. As a result, "I'll be missing the start of the French team because I can't do anything for a week except keep the lens in and then take drops," he dished on.
