Bret Michaels Is Suing the Tony Awards

Bret Michaels Is Suing the Tony Awards

Bret Michaels Is Suing the Tony Awards Bret Michaels almost died last year of a brain hemorrhage–and the Poison singer thinks the extreme condition was due to an injury sustained while performing at the 2009 Tony Awards.

Michaels filed a lawsuit against Tony Award Productions and CBS in L.A. County Superior Court on Friday, reports TMZ.com. He is asking for unspecified damages.

Michaels was hit in the head by a piece of the set at the end of his performance two years ago; he was hospitalized for a broken nose and cut lip after the show. Now, the “Rock of Love” star believes the life-threatening brain hemorrhage that happened six months later was a direct result of that injury.

“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,” the lawsuit stated.
It continues: “Through his sheer will to live, to see his children grow up, [he] was able to survive this trauma.”
