A rock star who recently survived a brain hemorrhage has filed suit against the Tony Awards, CBS and others in L.A. County Superior Court, blaming them for his health problems, reports TMZ.com.
Bret Michaels, the lead singer of Poison and a "Celebrity Apprentice" winner, had been on Broadway in the show "Rock of Ages" before he appeared on the awards show in June 2009. During the awards ceremony he was injured in a collision with scenery on the set as he attempted to leave the stage following his performance.
At the time, Michaels was hospitalized with minor wounds, including a broken nose. However, within six months, Michaels nearly died from a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage, and Michaels says the health problem is directly related to the Tonys incident.
The show’s producers have allegedly said the collision was Michaels’ fault, saying he "missed his mark."
