Just yesterday news of a lawsuit hit the wire when then woman who fell victim to R&B crooner Miguel’s now infamous leg drop is said to potentially caused brain damage. What’s now been unearthed is the singer was told by the Billboard Music Awards show producers not to attempt the leap because it was, in fact, too dangerous.
Things are already looking bad for Miguel what with Khyati Shah, the woman he “leg dropped” on at the Billboard Music Awards, threatening to sue him for brain damage, now comes word that producers ordered him not to do the dangerous leap in the first place. But he did it anyway.
The “Adorn” singer approached producers before rehearsals and asked if he could try to jump over the crowd during his performance, however producers weren’t feeling the idea and told the singer it was just too dangerous and warned him not to do it.
But when it came time for the performance, Miguel totally ignored the order and producers’ fears were realized when he botched the jump and leg dropped Shah … slamming her head against the stage.
Miguel, to his credit, is said to be more concerned about the health of Khyati Shah than a lawsuit according a source in the singer’s camp.
“I don’t think [a lawsuit is] on his mind. I think right now he’s just hoping the girl will be fine and not have any serious damage to her head.”
The source adds, “I know if he had to go back in time he wouldn’t have tried to pull that off. But it’s in the past now, nothing he can do. “
The source also explains how Miguel is feeling since the incident:
“He’s scared for that woman and can’t believe everything that went down. He’s in shock at it all and feels awful, really awful. That was not his intention to hurt anybody. All he wanted to do was have a big performance and do something that hasn’t been done and it went all bad for him.”
This is all bad! Things aren’t looking so good for Miguel … he better look into that attorney STAT! We’ll keep you posted on this developing story.
