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.

I call B.S.! If they didn't know he was going to jump -- why did they have the cameras positioned in a way that captured his jump perfectly? I know they have multiple camera angles, but they must have known or at least rehearsed the jump beforehand to get the angle right.

And I agree -- what about the second girl who FELL DOWN when he knocked her over?

The poor girl on the right looks as though she went down and didn't get back up. Was she ok? Did he knock her out?

He's a no talent, no rhythm idiot. He should have listened to the producers and not taken that jump. He thinks he's a big star and can do what he wants. NOT. I've never heard of him. How did he get on this show? He looks like an American Idol reject.

Sue him for what? if a white rocker jumped in the crowd (like they usually do) and hurt someone it wouldn't be a problem!! That thirsty bitch bought those up close seats. I hope she tries to sue and lose in court!!

This is one of the few times I'd say a lawsuit is justified. This idiot is clearly reckless in his actions. He should be sued for what he did. Just a straight up dumb move that ended up hurting somebody.
