The unlucky fan whose head was on the receiving end of Miguel’s leg may be suffering from brain damage.
Last month the R&B singer got so into his performance at the Billboard Music Awards that he attempted to leap from the stage to the catwalk, unfortunately Khyati Shah was in the middle of his flight path.
Shah’s lawyer, Vip Bhola, told TMZ, “Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury”. He also said that the Billboard Music Awards should have rushed the victim to the hospital, but they allegedly only gave her an ice pack. The lawyer added that his client is waiting for test results from a neurologist before proceeding on plans of a suit.

Miguel and the injured brunette spoke to Billboard.com after the show:
Well, I think it’s kind of clear what happened. But I’m very happy to bring my new friend, Khyati, we just met. Unfortunately we did not meet under the best circumstances, but I think we’re okay.
The crazy thing is, when you’re performing and you’re just kind of into it, you never know where it’s gonna go and where you’re gonna go with it, and how that might turn out. So this is one of the less favorable moments.
