The lawyer working on the behalf of Khyati Shah, the woman whose head had a close encounter with Miguel’s foot, says his client could be suffering from brain damage.
Khyati Shah’s lawyer Vip Bhola has told TMZ: “Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.” He went on to say that he and his client are awaiting a doctor’s analysis, the results of which should be delivered next week. They will then decide if they will take legal action against Miguel and Billboard.
During Miguel’s live performance during last month’s Billboard Music Awards, he flew across the mosh pit with reckless abandon and crashed into audience members. In an interview with Billboard after the incident, he expressed remorse, “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 OK.”
Bhola also told TMZ that offering Shah an ice pack was a pathetic gesture, since she should have been rushed to an ER.
