Rock of Love’s Bret Michaels suffered a nose fracture and busted lip while performing the opening number at last Sunday’s 63rd annual Tony Awards. Bret took the stage to perform Nothin’ But A Good Time with his band Poison and fell to the ground aftercolliding into a piece of the set. But according to a Tony’s spokesperson, they aren’t accepting any of the blame…
According to buzznet.com, Bret’s reps were very upset with the Tony’s for dismissing the incident. “I find it surprising that a Tony spokesperson would brush off this incident with a comment stating ‘Mr. Michaels missed his mark’ with no mention of concern for his condition,” spokesperson Janna Elias says in the statement.
“If everyone at the Tonys [was] aware that Bret missed his mark, then they should have been aware enough to stop the set piece from hitting him or at least slowed it down until he cleared the stage. I feel had this incident happened to Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton or Elton John, the Tonys would have at least issued a letter of concern.”
The statement continues, “The full extent of his injuries remains to be seen until all x-rays are back.”
