Skrillex Fan Sues

Idiot Stage Dove On Me

And Gave Me a Stroke

2/10/2014 1:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

I'm not at all into this dude or his music, but he made it pretty clear to the crowd that it was coming...I don't know if that sort of thing has an effect on a legal battle tho...if the girl did in fact get hurt, it probably could have been avoided with a little effort on her part. Only speaking as someone who is at rock shows every night for "work"

Problem with this lawsuit is that anyone who pays to see Skrillex is already borderline retarded.

Ok first of all that video clip is from years ago! You can clearly see Ellie Goulding at the back of the stage and they broke up a while ago. So that's bull****.

Second, when you buy tickets for a big show like this you take on the responsibility for what happens there. Gigs always have mosh pits etc, and she must've been aware of this. That dive sucked a lot so i can see why someone might've got hurt but as for the lawsuit, i really can't see her winning that. Skrill will get a good lawyer!

You can do those kind of things when your whole live show is comprised of pushing play.
