And the hits keep coming for W.i.P. nightclub --- the scene of the now-infamous Chris Brown/Drake melee. NBA superstar Tony Parker, injured in the fight, is suing the NYC nightclub for $20 million, claiming it should never have let Rihanna's exes in at the same time. In a strange twist of fate, both Chris Brown and Drake could end up as defendants.

The San Antonio Spur filed the lawsuit Thursday in NY State Supreme Court, and in the suit he alleges the club's security was negligent for allowing the brawl to ever happen. 

Parker says he was hit by shards of glass and suffered lacerations to his cornea when bottles started flying in the fight last week. 

The lawsuit alleges club management, knowing there was "bad blood between Drake and Brown," continued selling alcohol to the participants in the brawl, despite the fact that some were "visibly intoxicated."

$20 million seems excessive until you remember that Parker's injury could affect his NBA career and his performance in the Olympics with the French national team.
