The fan who got kicked in the head during the Billboard Music Awards by an overzealous Miguel says she’s having cognitive issues that may stem from the incident, according to her lawyer.
During the May 19th performance, Miguel attempted to jump across the crowd to land on the opposite side of the stage towards the end of his song and didn’t quite clear the audience; he half-landed on one woman and kicked a girl in the head. The girl was reportedly given an ice pack, and Miguel caught up with her after the show to make sure she was okay. Her lawyer says she should have been rushed to the hospital instead.
Miguel later tweeted, “got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay”, although that has now been deleted from his account. The fan, Khyati Shah, says she’ll wait for test results to come back before she decides what to do legally.
“Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury,” lawyer Vip Bhola said.
