A fan hurt during the Billboard Music Awards performance by R&B singer Miguel may be experiencing brain damage, according to her attorney.

During the May 19 performance of "Adorn," Miguel jumped out over the crowd and landed on fans. Videos and photos of the episode popped up all over the Internet, and Twitter lit up with comments from people watching the televised show.

Vip Bhola, attorney for fan Khyati Shah whom the video showed pinned under the singer’s leg, told TMZ, “Some of the difficulties she’s experiencing are cognitive in nature and lead to suspicion of a neurological head injury.”

Media outlets reported that Miguel tweeted that he got “caught up in the moment” and that he was glad Khyati Shah was OK. That tweet has been removed.

According to MTV.com, Shah is awaiting news on a neurological exam and then will decide what her next move will be. Her attorney also alleged that she should have received medical attention that night, but was only given an ice pack after the performance.

Shah appeared with Miguel during an interview after the Billboard performance. In that interview, he said, “The crazy thing is, when you’re performing and you’re just kind of into it, you never know where it’s gonna go and where you’re gonna go with it, and how that might turn out. So this is one of the less-favorable moments.”

Twitter comments went both ways after the incident, with some people shocked Miguel would jump into the crowd like that. As news spread that Shah may take legal action because of her injuries spread, others jumped on board to defend Miguel.
