Miguel

DEFIED ORDER

Singer Was Told Not to Jump at Billboard Awards

EXCLUSIVE

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.

That was a plainly idiotic thing to do, and it didn't take it turning out badly for anyone to realize that. Or at least it shouldn't have.
Dude just flushed his career!

Fact: African Americans have an average IQ of 84. (Look it up.) 100 is considered average. 75 is considered mentally retarded. They are closer to mentally retarded than to average. For example...some ****ing idiot at the Billboard Awards....

Most of these singers have the voice but certainly don't have the brains to make good decisions. I wish the court system would come down hard on them once. Maybe that would show them they have to follow the laws and advice of others.

if he or any of todays so-called entertainers had any kind of actual talent they wouldn't have to distract the crowd with jumps twirls and spins.

He was clearly reckless in his behavior. He hurt 2 woman and showed zero concern for either of them.

Man, there are some serious Africian American haters commenting in this column!! WTF is wrong with you a**holes?? God put all of us here on this earth. No one race is superior to the other. Go pound on a body bag if you have that much anger inside you. People talking bad about any race just shows how insecure you really are.

The amount of racist comments is SCARY. These people work and go to school with the people they're attacking. I bet they smile in their face and say things like "im not racist i have plenty of black friends" then run home and become white supremists on the Internet. Makes me wonder what my boss and co-workers really think of me.
