Miguel's Leg Drop Victim May Have Suffered Brain Damage, Might Sue

The young lady who was on the receiving end of Miguel's leg drop at the Billboard Music Awards may have suffered brain damage from the incident.

Khyati Shah's lawyer tells TMZ that Shah is still suffering as a result of the incident. "Some of the difficulties she's experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury," he said.

Immediately after the incident, Shah was given an ice pack that her attorney says was designed for an elbow, rather than being rushed to the hospital. Miguel appeared in a backstage interview with Shah and expressed his concern, but the general -- and now obviously disproven -- consensus was that she was fine. Miguel himself tweeted that he "got caught up in the moment" and said Shah was "okay."

The incident instantly became a meme on Twitter and Instagram, with many users uploading photos transposing Miguel's mid-air body onto different photos. Shah will wait to decide to sue until she receives word from her neurologist.
