So, Miguel May Have Given That Woman At the Billboard Awards Brain Damage

Hey guys, remember when Miguel kicked that woman in the head when he decided to jump like an asshole during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards last month? Turns out, it may be more serious than we first thought, as the victim, Khyati Shah, is apparently suffering from a neurological injury.

From TMZ:

Vip Bhola, Shah’s lawyer, says, “Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.”

Bhola says BMA responded to the accident with a pathetic gesture — an ice pack designed to soothe a bruised elbow.  The attorney insists his client should have been rushed to the hospital.

Bhola tells us his client is waiting for test results from a neurologist. When the results are in — sometime next week —  Khyati will decide if a lawsuit is in the cards.

In a lot of cases, I would assume this woman just wanted to get money in an easy lawsuit, but for anyone who actually saw this (so, the entire world) can’t argue with this one. Miguel himself even knew he’d gone a bit too far and tried to refer to Khyati as his “new friend” after the incident. No thanks, bro.

Turns out, to make Miguel more of an asshole, the BMA producers repeatedly warned this dude NOT to jump, and he went ahead and did it anyway because he’s such a ~rebel~. You know, the BMAs were trying to stifle his artistry instead of attempting to prevent shit like this from coming up.

Also from TMZ:

We’re told … Miguel approached producers before rehearsals and asked if he could try to jump over the crowd during his performance … but producers shot down the idea, telling Miguel it was just too dangerous. But when showtime came around, Miguel blew off the order … and producers’ fears were realized when he botched the jump and leg dropped a female fan … slamming her head against the stage.

  • So what if they “only” gave her an icepack? What the hell was stopping the chick from leaving and going to the hospital herself?
