“Khyati’s wellbeing has been and continues to be of the utmost concern to Miguel,” the singer’s spokeswoman wrote in a statement released earlier this month.
“She was a fan of Miguel and she’s dumbfounded at how she’s been treated,” Bhola said.
“She had hoped they would truly care about her rather than merely caring about themselves and some imaginary lawsuit they are defending against,” he said.
Shah is studying for dual-degrees in politics and philosophy at UCLA. Bhola said she had planned to return to New Zealand for the summer, but her travel will likely be delayed while she continues to undergo treatment and testing for her memory and language issues. He said she has trouble finding words and also has difficulty typing text messages without them turning out garbled.
Despite the issues, Bhola said a lawsuit is not guaranteed.
“The doctors really are in the driver’s seat in this situation, not the lawyers,” he said. “Once we have that information, we’ll be able to make legal evaluations.”
