Miguel Reportedly IGNORED Billboard Music Awards' Orders To Not Jump Over Audience!!

miguel lawsuit warned billboard music awards producers

What a musical nightmare!

Miguel was allegedly very STERNLY ordered by producers of the Billboard Music Awards to avoid attempting the insane live stunt that ball slapped an unlucky fan, but he obviously refused to follow the reported instructions.

Now, thanks to the Adorn singer's rebellion, he could be smacked with a MAJOR lawsuit by head slam victim, Khyati Shah!

But what reasoning did producers give Miguel when they dismissed his cray cray idea??! It was *GASP* too dangerous!

We bet someone regrets not listening!

If Khyati's test results do prove she has brain damage then we can't imagine anyone being responsible other than the daredevil singer, assuming that producers really did warn him!

After all, they can't control him WHILE he is on stage performing!

Mental Patient Delivers Baby Born With Severe Brain Damage Due To Unequipped Hospital Staff

Filed under: Oops!Legal MattersSad SadHealth

The state health department has acknowledged a huge screw up on their part after a pregnant mental patient was refused the proper resources necessary to deliver her baby safely.

The baby now has profound brain damage, and could be on a ventilator for the rest of his life.

A report from the inspector general of the Department of Children & Families reported that the 34-year-old woman, who was being held in Florida's largest mental hospital, became increasingly frantic to get medical care for her baby and called 911 twice.

Here's what she said to the operator:

“There’s nobody here that can help me right now, and I’m pregnant."

The emergency dispatcher asked to speak with the hospital caregiver who said:

“She says she’s going into labor; she’s not going into labor … Can’t send her nowhere right now."

The unidentified patient has schizophrenia. Her family, regarding the baby, said:

“He is not doing well. He is on life support.”

The state health services released a report that said the mental hospital took several missteps which resulted in the baby's subsequent severe brain damage.

Here what those "missteps" were:

"1. The hospital thought the woman wasn't due to deliver for another month or two.
2. The staff did not check the patient's blood pressure which was extremely fluctuated and should've served as a red flag.
3. The woman was given psychiatric medicine without the consent of her father and guardian.
4. The hospital had no guidelines on how to take care of a pregnant woman.
5. The staff was understaffed, and many workers were forced to work double shifts. "

We just hope the baby is able to survive, and this serves as a wake-up call to ALL mental institutions across the country to get their shizz together and not let a preventable tragedy such as this ever happen again.

EVER.

Poetry Man Singer Phoebe Snow Has Passed Away.

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad Sad

This is truly just awful, and so, so sad.

Singer Phoebe Snow, who is probably most famous for her hit 1974 single Poetry Man, died this morning in Edison, NJ at the age of 60 due to complications from a brain hemorrhage she suffered in January.

After her initial success, she gave birth to a girl, Valerie, who was born with brain damage in 1975, and Snow let her career take a back seat as she acted as her daughter's primary caregiver until she passed in 2007.

She said in 2008:

"Occasionally I put an album out, but I didn't like to tour and they didn't get a lot of label support. But you know what? It didn't really matter because I got to stay home more with Valerie and that time was precious."

Hopefully she and her daughter are somewhere, together again in some form, and at peace.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with her family, friends, and loved ones.

R.I.P.
