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.

I hope the young lady will be ok. This is what a big ego does for a little man. Get ready to pay up dude!

Got super embarrassed after seeing all those memes all over the internet and saw an opportunity to make $$$ ... and get revenge as well. Sit down and shut up groupie before I give you a ultimate leg drop myself.

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? they told a performer performing for a million people viewership to not 'do something "outrageous" like 'jump over a crowd'??? while they hoover 200 lbs steel shape edge cameras over these same crowds? while they have them crowded like sardines in a tight narrow space? who the hell are they kidding? that jump was probably the least dangerous situation of that entire show.

Whichever way you look at it, this was a dumb ass move by Miguel. It was dangerous and reckless and ultimately negligent. He didn't even seem to care about her afterwards, never checked on her to see if she was okay. Is is douche. He will end up paying this lady, no doubt about it.

This guy is a loser and an epic douche. It looks like she walked away and collapsed right after he injured her and he acted as if he could care less. He should be charged with battery.

ripped up her neck and maybe even some disks,he landed wrong and hurt his left nee.If he was going to jump it should have been planned and no one should have been in his landing area.Smitty tassed stunt work and he should pay all damages and be fitted with blades next time so he can be the blade runner double whom sang too much.Kung fu he an`t even though he sings a few Fu fu`s
