Miguel’s Leg Drop Victim Reportedly Showing Signs Of Brain Damage

June 4, 2013  |

Last week we told you that Miguel’s leg drop victim, Khyati Shah, looked as if she was preparing to take legal action against the “Adorn” singer after she was injured during his 2013 Billboard Music Awards performance. Although Shah’s attorney, Vip Bhola, expressed that his client’s decision to proceed with legal filings would be contingent upon the results of medical testing, it does look like Shah and her attorney are setting the stage for a major, highly publicized lawsuit.

While we don’t know specifically what those medical tests revealed, Bhola recently expressed to TMZ that organizers of the Billboard Music Awards failed to take appropriate action following his client’s injury and that instead of offering her an icepack, they should’ve rushed her to the nearest hospital. Bhola also revealed that since the incident, his client has been experiencing symptoms consistent with brain damage.

“Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.”

It’s a tough call. Shah could be looking for a quick come-up or things could really be as serious as her lawyer is making them seem. I mean, that leg drop did look pretty painful. On the flip side, it seems a little suspicious that her attorney continues to speak to entertainment sites.

What are your thoughts on this?

    The point of this matter is that this lady was injured, and there is no way of knowing how bad this will turn out. Miguel showed very poor judgement by doing this. What ever the dollar amount it will not compensate this lady is she has neurological issues.

  • Candacey Doris

    She should get some compensation but I hope the tests come through clean anyway, for her sake. That’s nothing you should have to deal with just because you wanted to watch a concert.

  • Child_Puhleez

    Hurry up & cut her a check, Defandant Miguel. If I managed venues, I would ban him from performing. His attempt at being cool was reckless.

  • SheBe

    She went to the Billboard awards. The question should be if she had brain damage prior. Miguel should pay her med bills and everyone should move on. See the other chick is silent.

  • She looks like she had some ‘cognitive’ impairments long before Miguel karate kicked her with dem big azz boots. But they ought to cut her a nice check and be done with it.

    • Hostile Negress

      I haven’t the time or energy to deal with you on this day LMAO

    Whomever says Khyati is trying to get that money needs to roll the video tape again. Anyone who’s been in an accident know that after effects are very very real. Adrenaline and embarrassment were the only things making that poor girl say she was fine. For real Miguel and his camp are trife for trying to sweep this and not offering compensation. I dare any of the sceptics to just slightly tap their heads on a stage floor and tell me what they feel.

    a come up wow REALLY a icepack first thing that should have medical staff at the event to escort her or call 911 icepack that was to downplay the injury she was fine ..Miguel should show do the right thing forget fame and what your lawyers say how about the right thing

  • JRoc85

    I truly hope Khyati will be alright (& is not trying to milk this incident for a few dollars/ 15 minutes of fame)! In the future, Miguel keep your little AZZ still next time you’re on stage.

  • pickneychile

    I don’t doubt for one second that the girl has had further issues after that painful looking mess. Head and neck injuries are no joke! I wonder what happened to the other lady though.

  • Leigh

    They are doing everything they can to get that money.

    • Yeppers

      As they should… The girl dam head SMACKED THE STAGE. I would sue too. And then go to see your concert with YOUR MONEY. Eff outa here, did you see that fall. Her body was jerked into the stage bent at the midsection. Only reason she didn’t fall to the floor immediately was because miguel was on top of her. Get that money sweetheart.

  • hollyw

    I’m pretty sure he’s not “speaking to entertainment sites” as much as they’re knocking his door down, and as far as “looking for a quick come-up”…ummm he LANDED ON HER HEAD. From mid-air!! I’m actually surprised and disappointed that Miguel didn’t take the initiative to pay for her medical expenses from jump…I mean, HE knew what he did, more than anybody! Smh shameful…

    If I had been treated as carelessly, I’d be feeling some kind of way, myself…I really pray she has no permanent damage.

    It doesn’t matter if she’s looking for a quick payday or not, that fool and the Billboard awards need to be paying that girl whatever she wants and more! That leg drop looked painful and the other lady who got the boot to the face better be suing also. Miguel is stupid. You don’t see Prince jumping from stage to stage.

    • Mona Lisa

      Oh… To be a fly on the wall when Prince saw it all unfold. (Would love to hear what he has to say about it.)

      • Child_Puhleez

        Interesting! OK, now you’ve got me curious. LOL

    • Jenn E. Penny

      Miguel should of reprimanded for that, I’m pretty sure that was NOT part of the act and he need to think about his fans FIRST before he starts trying to add extra shenanigans to his act, her lawyer isn’t taking the appropriate route by going to TMZ of all places, I personally dont like when people double their lawsuits as public slander to those they are effecting, if you truly want reparations for your injuries, just do that, dont also purposely try to turn the public against him as well

      • bigdede

        I get what you are saying about how lawyers try to publicly slander the ppl they are suing. But the TMZ article doesn’t say the lawyer contacted TMZ. It was just a statement the lawyer put out. So the lawyer could have released it to the AP and everyone picked up the story.

        • T

          The lawyer spoke to tmz exclusively

    • LiiSH

      Miguel is not Prince… I have no idea what that has to do with the price of tea in China. I feel bad for all parties involved as I’m sure he was just intending to put on a nice performance. Had he made the jump he wouldn’t have been “stupid” SMH… Things happen…

      • bigdede

        I know Miguel is not Prince. I was talking about their height. Prince is a small man like Miguel who also wear boots. Prince would never do anything like that. That is what I was talking about.

  • Mrs. A

    Regardless of the circumstances the young lady should be compensated for getting kicked in the D*** head.Who knows what kind of issues will arise from this.She came to enjoy a show not get assaulted by a platform shoe.
