TMZ is reporting that Skrillex will be liable for some of the damages involved in a 2014 lawsuit. A fan claims she suffered a stroke after Skrillex landed on top of her when he jumped off the decks at LA’s Belasco Theater back in February 2014.
The jury found Skrillex to be responsible for 35% of the total damages, which was a staggering $4,525,402 million. Skrillex’s touring company, Lost Boys, will owe $1.8 million. The venue coughed up about $450,000 for the incident.
Skrillex told TMZ, “There is nothing more important to me than my fans and their safety at my shows — I want them to have fun and enjoy the music.”
Skrillex’s lawyers aren’t too happy with the outcome, stating there was video proof that Skrillex didn’t land on her and that, “Ms. Fraissl’s active international travel schedule since her stroke seems unlikely for someone who suffered the type of mental and physical damages she and her attorney claimed.”
