Fan Sues Skrillex Over Stage Diving

SkrillexSkrillex is reportedly being sued after he landed on a fan on while stage diving at a gig in 2012.

The 26-year-old musician - real name Sonny Moore - could be forced to pay out after Jennifer Fraissl allegedly filed a lawsuit against him, claiming she suffered a stroke as a result of the trauma.

The female supporter claims Skrillex asked the crowd at the Belasco theater in Los Angeles to move forward so that he could leap from the stage and crowd surf. However, Jennifer was stood at the front, so it was impossible for her to get out of the tight spot among the other fans, which resulted in her allegedly being injured by the star. Jennifer is reportedly claiming for unspecified damages, medical expenses and loss of income.

According to TMZ.com, both Skrillex and the nightclub have been named in the lawsuit as she believes the event organizers failed to step in and stop the star from behaving recklessly on their premises.

Skrillex and The Belasco have yet to comment on the claims.

Meanwhile, Skrillex announced last year he was planning on releasing his debut album in the near future. When asked if he had new music to release, he told Radio 1, "For sure - sooner rather than later, I'd say sooner."
