BRET MICHAELS Settles Lawsuit Over 2009 Tony Awards Mishap
May 15, 2012 / 688 reads / No comments yet
Organizers of Tony Awards have settled a lawsuit filed by POISON singer Bret Michaels over a mishap that occurred during a production number featuring the "Rock Of Ages" cast, which resulted in a head injury for Michaels. The terms of the settlement will not be made public.
"Mr. Michaels would like to thank his fans for their continued support," Bret's attorney, Alex Weingarten, said of the settlement.
According to the lawsuit, Bret nearly died in April 2010 from a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage, which he believed was caused by the injuries he suffered at the Tony Awards. In his suit, Michaels 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." Michaels notes, "Through his sheer will to live, to see his children grow up, [he] was able to survive this trauma."
