Miguel just got thrown all the way under the Greyhound. According to Billboard Music Awards producer, the R&B crooner was ordered not to attempt his leaping fail that resulted in his infamous leg drop. So much for that.
According to TMZ:
We’re told … Miguel approached producers before rehearsals and asked if he could try to jump over the crowd during his performance … but producers shot down the idea, telling Miguel it was just too dangerous.
But when showtime came around, Miguel blew off the order … and producers’ fears were realized when he botched the jump and leg-dropped a female fan … slamming her head against the stage.
Now, the victim’s lawyer says she may have suffered a brain injury as a result … and a lawsuit could be on the way.
We reached out to Miguel for comment — but he never called us back.
Clearly, Billboard wants no parts of that sure to be pending lawsuit.
Let this be a warning to all your singer out there, making sure your hops are thorough–and that you’re heels don’t interfere in your vertical lift–before attempting to leap over a crowd. The struggle is real, Miguel. The struggle is real.
