Um, what?

Just the facts, or reported facts: According to French website Direct Star (via WOAI in San Antonio) Tony Parker had his eye injured in a fight in a New York club between rappers Drake and Chris Brown, reportedly over Rihanna, who they both have dated. The fight happened earlier in the week.

"I was quietly with my friends when a fight broke out. Bottles started flying everywhere. I tried to protect my girlfriend and I got everything," Parker said, wearing sunglasses to hide the wound.

"The cornea is affected. I cannot do anything for seven days. Wear a therapeutic contact lens and I get drops. I was lucky, that I almost had to get stitches," he added.

Um, what?

If TMZ barred the doors to their building and brainstormed an ideal story, I'm not even sure they could come up with this. Only thing that would've made it more ideal is if Justin Bieber had been the one who broke up the fight and Lindsay Lohan drove Parker to the hospital.

According to WOAI, Parker should be OK and available to play for France in the 2012 Olympics in London.
