Who didn’t see this coming? The woman who was injured by a leaping Miguel at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards is said to be reviewing her legal options, according to E! Online.
The crooner was performing his track “Adorn” at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 19 when he attempted to jump across a group of audience members dancing in front of the stage. But he misjudged the distance and slammed the head of Khyati Shah into the stage with his leg.
Miguel tried to make amends with the woman by inviting her backstage after the show to apologize in person, but, despite her smiles for the cameras, Shah looks set to sue after allegedly experiencing health problems following the incident.
Her attorney Vip Bhola tells Eonline.com that Shah has been having “difficulties” ever since the accident, adding, “We will determine that (whether they will file a lawsuit) after we have feedback from medical providers.”
Miguel has yet to comment on the potential lawsuit, but told Billboard.com after the awards show that he and Shah became friends backstage, adding, “We just met. Unfortunately, we did not meet under the best circumstances, but I think we’re Ok… (I) got caught up in the moment. Thank goodness Khyati is Ok.”
