Bret Michaels Sues Tonys Over Accident He Claims Caused Brain Hemorrhage

Posted on Fri Mar 25, 2011 04:15 PM PDT


Bret Michaels has filed suit against the Tony awards for a 2009 accident that he believes caused the nearly fatal brain hemorrhage he subsequently suffered.

Michaels, who performed the opening number of the show with his band Poison and the cast of Rock of Ages, was flattened by a piece of scenery that dropped as he was walking offstage. The Tony awards blamed Bret for "missing his mark", which at the time left Michaels with a broken nose and bruised lip.

But less than a year later, Bret was rushed to the hospital after suffering a brain hemorrhage.

In the suit filed today against the Tony Awards and CBS, Bret claims "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."

Bret is seeking unspecified damages.

The documents also say "Through his sheer will to live, to see his children grow up, [he] was able to survive this trauma."
