DALLAS -- Michael Vick will not attend a Super Bowl XLV party that was billed as being his own, an Eagles spokesman said.

The party is scheduled to take place Friday at the Duex Lounge here, with heavy security, according to a report from the celebrity gossip Web site, TMZ.

The invitation has a large drawing of Vick in his Eagles uniform superimposed over Cowboys Stadium. It is headlined: "Super Bowl -- Dallas Dynasty 2011 -- The Michael Vick Experience."

"Four-time Pro Bowl quarterback Michael Vick would like to personally invite you to the only upscale, A-list celebrity event of the 2011 Super Bowl. This will be the primary and preferred destination for inconic personalities from the NFL, MLB, Hollywood, the music industry and corporate America. Simply put the premier A-list high society event of the 2011 Super Bowl!!"

The last time Vick hosted a party someone got shot in the leg.

Vick attended the June celebration of his 30th birthday in Virginia Beach. The incident created a hailstorm of controversy when Quan Phillips, a co-defendant in Vick's dogfighting case, was shot in the thigh.

Vick has said he had nothing to do with the shooting. No one has been charged.
