Remember when Bret Michaels almost died of a brain hemorrhage last year? Remember when Bret got hit in the head with a gigantic piece of scenery during his performance at the Tony Awards in 2009? Are you putting things together yet?
Friday, Michaels filed a law-suit in L.A. County Superior Court against Tony Award Productions, CBS, and others for unspecified damages, claiming that the incident with the scenery caused his life-threatening condition.
In the complaint, Michaels says the producers of the show did not instruct him how to properly exit the stage, leading to him being “smacked” in the head by the scenery.
Following the show, the singer was treated for a cut lip and broken nose. The hemorrhage didn’t take place until six months later. The suit states:
“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.”
It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out….
