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.

watch the video clips, there was TWO females that got head slammed. wondering when the other one will come forth. from the video it looks like both of them slithered to the floor after he landed on them.

This article makes no sense considering there was another news clip of her from a local station and she said she was fine.

The starstruck fans did not realize that being that close to the stage may put them in the line of fire. Then again, they most certainly knew that they would be on camera. Not a lot of brain power on either side.
The lawyers win again.

Not an accident if he was told not to do it in the first place, not to mention he continued to sing after he hit the two girls, didn't look like he cared, its as if he acted as if the girls were to blame. I don't blame the girl at all.He could have killed her.

He knows he's going to do a dangerous stunt and jump over peoples heads. Would it not make sense to at least wear tennis shoes? The guy is wearing hard shoes with heels. Press charges!

These dumb mfs are calling black ppl dumb and retarded but it's cool for white ppl to go around shooting up schools and killing innocent kids.. We all have our flaws and if u SOBs wanna point out black ppl make sure u let it be known that white ppl have done the most psychotic events in world history..

That story is B.S there is no way a Camera would have been on the other side unless it was staged and blocked. The Billboard show knew he was going to do the Jump and they Approved it. they are just trying to avoid knowing because of a possible Lawsuit.
