Miguel’s Drop Kick Victim May Have Brain Damage

Published On June 4, 2013 | By Ashley Williams | MUSIC, NEWS, TELEVISION

R&B singer Miguel’s Hulk Hogan leg drop during last month’s Billboard Music Awards may have been funny at the time, but now no one is laughing. That’s because the girl who took a drop kick to the head might have brain damage.

While singing his number one hit, “Adorn,” Miguel attempted to execute a flying kick from one stage to another but accidentally landed on Khyati Shah’s head. Now, Shah’s lawyer claims that the young audience member should have been rushed to the hospital after the incident.

Vip Bhola tells TMZ that “some of the difficulties [Khyati's] experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.” Vip also claims that crews on the scene responded to the accident with a “pathetic gesture — an ice pack designed to soothe a bruised elbow.”

Test results from Shah’s neurologist will determine whether or not she will go forth with a lawsuit.

HipHollywood reached out to Bilboard and Miguel, but have not heard back.
