Miguel is having a hard time moving past the Billboard Music Awards leg drop incident. Khyati Shah, the young woman who caught the fade during the performance, may file a lawsuit according to her attorney.
E! News got the exclusive from Shah’s attorney, Vip Bhola, who says his side is currently mulling their options while waiting on Shah’s health results from her doctors. Although Shah seemed to be fine during a backstage interview with the R&B star shortly after the performance, Bhola claims his client’s condition has since worsened.
“We will determine that after we have feedback from medical providers,” Bhola told E! News. He also added that Shah has had “difficulties” in the days following being kicked, and acknowledged his client was in “shock and star struck” during the seemingly friendly interview. At the time, Shah’s only visible injury was supported by the young woman holding an ice pack to her elbow.
Bhola also claims that while his team has not contacted Miguel’s legal representatives, he is willing to negotiate a settlement on behalf of Shah. Although the crooner has taken the wisecracks surrounding the leg drop in stride, this news adds a less humorous angle to the story.
