The Woman Miguel Landed On During His Billboard Awards Performance May Have Brain Damage

We knew that something was going to happen when Miguel landed on that woman during The Billboard Awards, but we didn’t think it would involve brain damage.

The girl who took Miguel‘s leg drop to the head at the Billboard Music Awards may have suffered brain damage … the victim’s lawyer tells TMZ.

As you’ll recall … Miguel took a flying, theatrical leap across the stage and landed with thunderous force on Khyati Shah‘s head.

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.

Calls to Miguel and the BMA producers were not returned.

But wait, isn’t this the same woman who appeared backstage following the show but said she was fine?

UPDATE: Billboard says they warned Miguel not to jump, Miguel says they’re lying.

Sources connected to the production tell us the BMA’s executive producer Don Mischer personally spoke to Miguel after rehearsals and told him not to attempt the leap.

But Miguel’s rep is strongly denying that … telling TMZ, “The reports claiming that Miguel was warned by producers not to jump are completely false.”

In fact, a source close to Miguel added that producers actually asked him if he was going to attempt the jump to make sure their cameras didn’t miss it during the show.

This is basically Billboard’s way of saying they want nothing to do with the lawsuit and that Miguel is 100% at fault on his own. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.
