Miguel

DEFIED ORDER

Singer Was Told Not to Jump at Billboard Awards

Miguel was ORDERED not to attempt a dangerous jump over the crowd during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards because producers believed it was too dangerous ... but the singer ignored them ... sources connected to the production tell TMZ. 

We're told ... Miguel approached producers before rehearsals and asked if he could try to jump over the crowd during his performance ... but producers shot down the idea, telling Miguel it was just too dangerous.

But when showtime came around, Miguel blew off the order ... and producers' fears were realized when he botched the jump and leg dropped a female fan ... slamming her head against the stage.

Now,  the victim's lawyer says she may have suffered a brain injury as a result ... and a lawsuit could be on the way.

We reached out to Miguel for comment -- but he never called us back.

She was listening to his crappy music. So that proves she had brain damage before he kicked her. Throw the case out. Pre-existing condition.

Of course the producers are going to say that, they don't want to be sued. I'm sure everybody involved with the production, including the venue, are distancing themselves from his actions.

Why do you guys NEVER even mention the second girl who got her head kicked and fell to the floor during the Miguel jump fiasco. Look at that video there is a second girl who clearly got her head kicked in and then fell to the floor holding her head? She is on his left, but the news only talks about the girl on the right who hit her head on the stage? The other girl? What is her injury, clearly she suffered one. Commenters from day one have asked this, but you guys never even notice it, or report it, yet we all clearly see her? Where is she? Buried under the stage...ha ha? Not funny, but seriously where is she?

I hope she gets a bunch of money from his stupid ass. Unfortunately it's only pennies to him anyway but he shouldn't have done that and I do believe the producers warned him and he defied them.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

As soon as I saw that video I knew he was an a**hole. He didn't even apologize to her. His leeches probably laughed with their grubby hands over their mouths going "Ooooooo dayum!!!!" Now this a**hat whom I'd never even heard of before this incident will be a footnote on slop music history.
