The case of singer Miguel’s ill-timed audience leap at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards will not go away quietly. Earlier today counsel for the young woman he kicked, Khyati Shah, says that she may have suffered brain damage from the incident.
In a possible move to shield themselves from liability, producers for the award show told TMZ that Miguel was advised NOT to perform the jump in rehearsals, but the singer insisted.
During his performance of “Adorn” Miguel got a running start before attempting to leap over the group of fans at the front of the stage, but he landed short kand kicked one fan in the head.
An attempt was made to make the peace and the two were interviewed at the show.
While Miguel obliged producers with the interview he felt that was in poor taste to interview the injured fan while she was still nursing her wound.
“Are you serious?” Miguel said in an interview with a UK radio station. “That’s kind of inhumane, but interestingly she was a really good sport about it… I was like super uncomfortable.”
Miguel added that he was “mortified” and helped escort the young woman to the infirmary after his performance was over.
In the clip Sha said “I Adore Miguel,” but that may not be enough to keep her from cashing a check on his behalf.
