BRET MICHAELS Sues Producers For Broadcasting Tony Awards Accident
February 21, 2012 / 1195 reads / No comments yet
According to the New York Post, Bret Michaels claims the producers of the 2009 Tony Awards intentionally broadcast a stage mishap that nearly killed him in a bid to boost the show?s ratings.
Michaels yesterday filed papers charging CBS "could have prevented the footage... from airing via the standard seven-second broadcast delay."
But "the defendants took no such measures ? presumably because the incident would lead to greater publicity and ratings for the show," the Manhattan federal court filing says.
Bret is suing for up to $50 million ? says that beside his injuries, he suffered "humiliation when video of the incident immediately spread across the Internet."
Defense lawyers didn?t return requests for comment.
