Miguel May Face Lawsuit From Billboard Awards Fall

Miguel’s Billboard Music Awards Jump Victim Is Considering Legal Action

Miguel, whose overzealous jumping accidentally caused the deaths of 10,000 attendees at the Billboard Music Awards several weeks ago (well, no, not exactly, he mostly just accidentally landed on some poor girl’s neck and then she seemed pretty much fine afterward), may end up paying a hefty price for the incident: Khyati Shah is reportedly “considering” legal action, with her attorney telling E! News that pending medical results, they’ll be making a decision about whether to file a lawsuit against Miguel.

Her lawyer also said that she’s experienced “difficulties” following in the incident, and that her initial response — which was all smiles when interviewed on the red carpet with Miguel after it happened — was due to being in “shock and star struck.” 

Here are some reasons she should sue him:

1. He really messed up.
2. He’s rich.

Here are some reasons she should not sue him:
1. Miguel is the best!

Let’s hope that the powers of good win out in this one.

The last thing Miguel wants is a lawsuit. But he may just have one.

Khyati Shah—the audience member who was accidentally landed on by the singer during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards a few weeks back—is now "considering" legal action.

Shah's attorney, Vip Bhola, tells E! News exclusively that a decision will be made soon on whether to file a lawsuit against Miguel pending Khyati's most recent medical results. He noted that the fan has been experiencing "difficulties" as a result of the incident.

"We will determine that after we have feedback from medical providers," Bhola told E! News, declining to give a timeline on when any civil action might be filed.

The attorney also added that he has not spoken to the performer's legal representatives, but did leave open the possibility of a settlement.

Shortly after he crash-landed on top of her during a poorly timed jump across the stage, Khyati was all smiles in an interview alongside the crooner while holding an ice pack on her elbow.

In the same interview, Miguel called her his "new friend," and lamented they met under "not the best circumstances" but promised he'd make it up to her.

He later tweeted, "got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay," only to delete the post the next day.

Bhola added that Khyati was in "shock and star struck" after the awards ceremony when she was interviewed, but that her medical condition has since worsened in the days after.
