Miguel

DEFIED ORDER

Singer Was Told Not to Jump at Billboard Awards

6/4/2013 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0604_ipad_miguel_02

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.

Of course his entitled ass had to do it. There all trying to look so "bad." They all want to look ****y and "bad." How about just singing decent and being a decent person. They're all big mouth brats.

And he's supposively famous for.....???? What gets me is he defiled the order not to jump, possibly give one of those girls who are "plants" in the fake audience, brain damage yet all while lip synching!!!!

For some of morons who don't know, it's "moving the lips in synchronization with [pre-]recorded speech or song" to give the appearance of a 'live' performance.

What was purpose of the jump? To show everyone how much of a clown he is? If you're going to give someone brain damage might as well do it by punching them like Mike Rice

backfire    

And I hope she gets a load of money from him too. I saw that jump on video when his thigh came down on her shoulder and swallowed her head between his legs and her head came down backwards hitting the metal HARD. He just kept singing too. Didn't even care about this young girl.
