Remember when Miguel jumped across the stage at the Billboard Music Awards and landed on someone’s head?

Turns out, he may have been told not to attempt the jump in the first place. Citing “sources connected to the production,” TMZ is reporting that “producers believed it [the jump] was too dangerous.” Miguel went through with it anyway, landing into — and unfortunately, on — the audience.

What’s more, the woman who took the brunt of his body is now considering a lawsuit. Her lawyer told TMZ that the woman is experiencing cognitive difficulties. Once the neurological tests are in, they will decide how to proceed.

UPDATE Miguel’s rep sent EW the following statement: “The reports claiming that Miguel was warned by producers not to jump are completely false. A number of attempts were made to reach Khyati and her lawyer after the performance to see how she was doing and whether any assistance could be offered.  Khyati’s well-being has been and continues to be of the utmost concern to Miguel.”
