Bret Michaels Suing Tony Awards for Brain Hemorrhage


Bret Michaels


The rocker has lodged legal papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court that hold bosses at Tony Award Productions and TV network CBS responsible for his near-fatal health crisis.

Rocker Bret Michaels has filed suit against the producers behind the 2009 Tony Awards, blaming his on-stage accident at the ceremony for causing his near-fatal brain hemorrhage. The Poison front-man was performing at the New York prize giving when a stage prop fell and hit him in the face, leaving him with a bloody and broken nose and a cut lip.

Michaels was back in hospital six months after the awards show with a brain hemorrhage and a mild stroke, and the singer is convinced the two incidents are related. He lodged legal papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday, March 25, holding bosses at Tony Award Productions and TV network CBS responsible for his health crisis, reports TMZ.com.

The court papers state, "One of the most common causes of this type of hemorrhage is head trauma, exactly like the one Michaels suffered at the hands of the Tony Awards... Through his sheer will to live, to see his children grow up, (he) was able to survive this trauma."

Michaels claims show producers should have instructed him on how to exit the stage safely. He adds they "failed and refused" to aid him after the Tony Awards accident, and even reportedly attempted to shift the blame onto the star himself, alleging he "missed his mark". The rocker is suing for unspecified damages.
