Miguel’s drop to the floor at the Billboard Music Awards was a surprise to everyone in the audience, but none more so than the unlucky fan who ended up underneath the R&B star.
TMZ reports that the singer, who landed on audience member Khyati Shah’s head, may be sued for the incident that left the young woman with serious injuries.
Khyati’s lawyer, Vip Bhola, says that his client may have brain damage from the singer's lofty leg drop.
"Some of the difficulties she's experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury," he says.
Staff at the venue attempted to treat Khyati by handing over an iced pack for a bruise she suffered on her elbow, but her lawyer believes they were less than diligent in their treatment of his client, and that she should have been rushed to a hospital following the incident.
Vip says that Khyati will decide whether or not to pursue a lawsuit once the results from her neurological tests are in.
Miguel told a different story on a British radio broadcast, saying, “The natural inclination is to make sure everyone around you is OK... What sucks it that people don’t get to see what happens once the camera goes off, like, as soon as the cameras are off, I’m rushing to the girl, make sure she’s ok, let me take her to the infirmary, let me talk to her... I’m just trying to make sure she’s alright.”
