SPEAKING OUT: Miguel Says He DIDN'T SLEEP After Kicking Fan In the Head + "Drop Kick" Victim's Lawyers Hints At BRAIN DAMAGE
During an interview in the UK, Miguel opened up about his "fall" at the Billboard Music Awards and revealed what the victim shared with him backstage. Watch it inside and get the latest on the victim and a possible lawsuit.
While across the pond for a performance at LoveDough at Proud in Camden, Miguel chatted with the UK's Carly Wilford about that massive drop kick on a fan during the 2013 Billboard Awards.
Miguel opened up about his inability to sleep after the incident, but added that he felt comforted once he spoke to the victim, Khyati Shah. Here are the highlights:
On falling during his 2013 BMA performance:
"It didn't go exactly as I planned, I'm a very passionate performer. That time it just didn't work out for me but at the end of the day at least you know when you come to see me, I am going to put on a show and I am going to give it everything I love, everything I know and everything I feel. That's what living in the moment is all about."
On accepting that he made a "mistake" in public:
"When you put your art out there, you are not only putting your art out there, you are putting your life out there." He explains. "What I love about it, is the ability to show that you're human and for people to relate to the fact that we are not perfect."
Although Miguel seemed pretty confident that the Khyati was "ok", her lawyer, Vip Bhola told TMZ, "Some of the difficulties she's experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury."
He added that he and his client are waiting for test results from a neurologist and will decide later if they will pursue legal action. SMH...We smell a lawsuit coming on....
