Khyati Shah, the Miguel fan who was injured when the singer leaped into the air and crash landed on her head during the 2013 Billboard Music Awards has brain damage, according to TMZ.
The incident happened during last month’s Billboard awards show when Miguel misjudged his leap from the stage to the catwalk and landed on Khyati’s head.
Last week, Khyati’s lawyer, Vip Bhola, announced she planned to sue Miguel and Billboard pending the results of the doctor’s exam.
Bhola says Khyati is experiencing neurological 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,” Bhola, told TMZ.
Bhola also said the Billboard staff should have rushed Khyati to a hospital rather than give her an ice pack.
Remember when R&B singer Miguel did a WWE ‘flying squirrel’ take down of a young fan during his performance at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards?
Well, he may have to pay a pretty penny to the injured fan now that the lawyers are involved.
Khyati Shah was standing at the front of the stage when Miguel leaped into the air and crash landed on her head, slamming her face forcefully into the stage.
Though she appeared unfazed afterwards — and even got the chance to meet Miguel — her lawyer, Vip Bhola, tells E! News that his client was “in shock” and “star struck,” and now she feels the pain from her worsening condition.
Actress Kerry Washington, left, sat smiling at a school event with two students safely between her and first lady Michelle Obama, right. Kerry and Mrs. Obama were cordial and polite to each other while visiting the Savoy School in Washington, DC on Friday, May 24. Rumor has it that Kerry enjoyed a romantic fling with President Barack Obama. Mrs. Obama sat with pursed lips as Kerry performed with the students during a program at the school. Earlier this year Mrs. Obama vacationed separately from her husband. She plans to take another extended vacation on Martha’s Vineyard with her daughters next month. It is assumed that Mr. Obama will vacation with Reggie Love again. The Savoy School was selected last year by President Obama to receive the Turnaround Arts Initiative from the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. The school was once one of the nation’s lowest performing schools.

Singer Miguel got a little overexcited during his performance at the 2013 Billboard Awards on Sunday. The diminutive singer was performing his hit song “The Thrill,” when he attempted to jump over the crowd and landed on top of a fan’s head. Another girl standing at the front of the stage was also kicked in the head. But always the consummate professional, Miguel didn’t miss a beat as he continued his performance — after lifting his leg off the girl’s head. The girl reportedly suffered a mild concussion. No word on the extent of the other fan’s injuries. Watch the “thrilling” video below.
