*The girl whose head was slammed into the stage by Miguel‘s leg drop at the Billboard Music Awards may have suffered brain damage, the victim’s lawyer tells TMZ.
Miguel attempted to leap across the stage and landed all of his weight on Khyati Shah’s head, trapping it between his leg and the stage.
Vip Bhola, Shah’s lawyer, says, “Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.”
Bhola says the Billboard Music Awards response to the situation was inadequate, with producers giving her an ice pack designed to soothe a bruised elbow. The attorney insists his client should have been rushed to the hospital.
Bhola says his client is waiting for test results from a neurologist. When the results are in, sometime next week, Khyati will decide whether or not to sue.
