Following news that the woman Miguel landed on during his Billboard Awards performance could be seriously injured, further headlines have begun circulating that the singer was actually ordered not to attempt the dangerous jump, but chose to ignore requests.
According to TMZ.com, producers for the awards ceremony had requested that the singer not attempt to leap over the crowd during his performance, because they believed it was too dangerous … but, obviously, he did it anyway.
Sources said 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, he 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.
Now, the victim’s lawyer says she may have suffered a brain injury as a result … and a lawsuit could be on the way.
Miguel has yet to comment. Stay tuned…
