Bret Michaels

During his 2009 Tony Awards performance, “Rock of Love” star Bret Michaels was hit in the head by a piece of the set. Directly after the performance, the rockstar was treated for a split lip and broken nose. No other follow up injuries surfaced immediately. 6 months later, Michaels suffered from a brain hemorrhage that nearly killed him. On Friday, March 25, Michaels filed a lawsuit against the Tony Awards and CBS claiming the life-threatening condition resulted from the injury on stage.

He claims the producers of the awards did not tell him how to properly exit the stage so as to avoid such an injury. The suit states, “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 has spent the last year in and out of the hospital. He told Us Weekly that, if nothing else, at least the injury got him even closer to his fiance Kristi Gibson. At least something positive came out of the whole situation.
