Skrillex Fan Sues

Idiot Stage Dove On Me

And Gave Me a Stroke

Skrillex
might wanna cut stage diving out of his repertoire -- TMZ has learned, a fan has just sued the DJ for leaping on top of her from a stage in 2012 ... and giving her a stroke.

Jennifer Fraissl filed the lawsuit, claiming Skrillex -- real name Sonny John Moore -- took a flying leap from his DJ table during a performance at The Belasco in Downtown L.A. in February 2012 ... and landed on top of her.

Fraissl says she was standing near the front when Skrillex beckoned the crowd forward -- making it impossible for her to leave or even protect herself -- and that's when Skrillex jumped from his table ... several feet above the stage.

Fraissl says she suffered several injuries when the DJ landed on her, and later suffered a stroke as a result of the trauma.

She's now suing Skrillex (who's pretty well known for stage diving during his shows) as well as the nightclub -- claiming Belasco failed to prevent Skrillex from acting so recklessly. She's asking for unspecified damages ... medical expenses, loss of income, and more.

Calls to the nightclub and Skrillex's camp weren't returned.

1:43 PM PT -- We found a video of Skrillex stage diving that night. It's unclear if this was the stage dive referenced in the lawsuit ... but it fits Jennifer's description nearly exactly.

More like she got hit on the head and started to smell a gold mine. She had a stroke, right. I bet she has fibromyalgia too.

This is the same girl that complains the cheese and meat platter isn't at the proper temperature at your house party. She's gonna need all that money because NOBODY IS EVER GOING TO INVITE HER ANYWHERE EVER AGAIN!

I don't think the nightclub could do much to stop this idiot from jumping. Skrillex definitely should pay up though. What a dope. This isn't the movies or a cartoon. Jumping on people can injure them.

I do hope this lady makes a full recovery from this, but I can't help but feel horrible for Sonny. For him to find out about all of this... He just loves everyone and would never hurt anyone. I don't want this woman to be hurt and I don't want Sonny to feel bad. God, I just... This man is goldhearted and beautifully loving. Hoping for Jennifer to feel better and hoping for Sonny to feel better in his own sense.

That sucks though. A persons body weight landing on top of you has to hurt. That's so dangerous why would he even do that? I'd move out of the way and let his ass hit the floor.

Used to work production back east. I worked for Slipknot once and the lead singer made me move the entire crowd control barrier so he could stage dive over it during the show. My crew was pissed but we did it. Well right after he dives off the stage somebody punched him right in the dick and he cried like a baby about it to us backstage. Made the whole thing worth while. Remember kids, SLIPKNOT SUCKS ASS!
