Bret Michaels has launched a lawsuit against the bosses of the Tony Awards, accusing them of broadcasting his accident on stage during the 2009 awards to boost their ratings.

The Poison frontman was performing at the Tony Awards show in New York in 2009, when a large stage prop came down and whacked him in the face.

Bret was left with a broken nose, busted lip and life-threatening head injuries.

Michaels filed a $50 million lawsuit on Monday against the award bosses and the CBS network for not censoring the accident, which he said was humiliating.

An excerpt from the court document filing reads, “(CBS officials) could have prevented the footage… from airing via the standard seven-second broadcast delay. The defendants took no such measures – presumably because the incident could lead to greater publicity and ratings for the show.”

This is the second lawsuit against the producers of the Tony Awards by Michaels.

He sued them last year for unspecified damages for his brain hemorrhage and mild stroke he suffered after the horrific incident.

Let’s take a look at Bret Michael’s embarrassing Tony Awards incident:
