Miguel rep denies reports that singer was advised against stage dive

A PR rep for Miguel has denied that the singer was advised against jumping between two stages and over the heads of audience members at the Billboard Awards last month.

As previously reported, the jump went wrong and saw Miguel land on an audience member, Khyati Shah. Although he was interviewed with a seemingly OK Shah afterwards, she has since begun persuing legal action against him.

The spokesperson told TMZ that “the reports claiming that Miguel was warned by producers not to jump are completely false”, before adding that: “A number of attempts were made to reach Khyati and her lawyer after the performance to see how she was doing and whether any assistance could be offered. Khyati’s well-being has been and continues to be of the utmost concern to Miguel”.
