Miguel could be facing a lawsuit from injured Billboard Awards fan

2013 Billboard Music Awards - Show

Miguel‘s now-infamous failed stage jump at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards may wind up costing him after all. The singer jumped over a pit of audience members and crash landed onto one unlucky female concertgoer named Khyati Shah. Immediately following the incident, Shah conducted an interview alongside Miguel smiling broadly and indicating that all was forgiven. But Shah was doing the interview while holding an ice pack to her elbow.

“Well, I think it’s kind of clear what happened,” Miguel said at the time. “But I’m very happy to introduce my new friend, Khyati, we just met . Unfortunately we did not meet under the best circumstances, but I think we’re okay.”

“I  adore him,” Shah said.

But now, it looks like the young woman may be considering a lawsuit. Shah’s attorney, Vip Bhola, told “E! News” that a decision will be made soon on whether to file a lawsuit after Khyati’s most recent medical results.

“We will determine [whether to file a lawsuit] after we have feedback from medical providers,” Bhola said. He declined to give a timeline on when any civil action might be filed.

According to Shola, Shah has been experiencing unspecified “difficulties” since the awards show mishap.
