BRET MICHAELS SUING THE TONY AWARDS, BLAMES SHOW ACCIDENT FOR HIS BRAIN HEMORRHAGE
In 2009, Bret Michaels was almost decapitated when a set piece fell on him at the end of Poison's performance at the Tony Awards with the "Rock Of Ages" cast.
At the time, Bret was okay.
But when he was hospitalized with a hemorrhage six months later, Bret wondered if his condition was linked to the Tonys accident. Now, he is suing and claiming just that.
Bret filed a major lawsuit for unspecified damages against Tony Award Productions and CBS. The lawsuit claims that "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 suit claims that Bret asked producers where he should stand onstage during Poison's performance and he was told to exit from the stage rear at the end of the band's song.
Bret had never accused the Tony Awards of causing his brain hemorrhage until now.
