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.

why is everybody focusing on the leg drop, (not taking nothing away from it.) i'm sure she's hurt. And not the jump thrust kick straight to the other chick's face? Then he keeps on singing? I would gladly take a leg drop from Hogan, than a kick like that. Miguel and everyone in that pit who let those girls fall to the floor, and kept on singing and dancing, are S***BAGS!!!;-[

I received a head injury almost 5 years ago that caused brain damage and whiplash. I am no longer able to drive due to Post-Traumatic Vertigo and Complex Partial Seizures. This could seriously affect her for the rest of her life. She may be permanently disabled.

This was so crazy! I saw it when he was performing and rewinded 'cause she looked hurt badly! She collapsed and the girls standing next to her kept looking to the floor once Miguel sorta left the area she right away got on the floor. Crazy it look very painful! He SHOULD pay for it! Plus all these artist are so overpaid........ not cool

Miguel was clearly negligent which caused injury and he is clearly at fault. That was a young girl who clearly didnt understand what happened to her and as a parent I would be furious that they tried to downplay the seriousness of the situation. Clearly her adreneline was rushing which caused her not to feel her injuries right away. Shame on Miguel

Why isn't anyone talking about the girl that he drop kicked dead in the head with his left foot... that girl was in SERIOUS pain. She tried to remain on her feet but went all the way down and we haven't heard about her at all
