It seems organizers of the annual Tony Awards have settled a lawsuit brought against them by Poison singer Bret Michaels.
Bret sued the Tony Awards after he was struck in the head by a piece of the stage set after Poison performed on the Tonys stage with the cast of “Rock of Ages.”
The terms of the settlement will not be made public, unfortunately. So we don’t know if Bret made out well or just received a small check. We may never know.
“Mr. Michaels would like to thank his fans for their continued support,” Bret’s attorney, Alex Weingarten, said of the settlement.
The suit claimed Bret nearly died in April 2010 from a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage, which the singer believed was caused by the injuries he suffered at the Tony Awards.
The suit further claimed “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.”
