American DJ and producer, Skrillex, real name Sonny John Moore, has lost a lawsuit against a fan who sued him over a stage-diving incident back in 2012.
The lawsuit was brought forth by 31-year-old Jennifer Fraissl after a stage diving incident involving Skrillex in Los Angeles. Jennifer is suingthe producer for damages from the impact of his jump which she claims was, “unavoidable”. To make things worse, Fraissl would have a stroke 16 days later.
Skrillex has since released this statement:
“There is nothing more important to me than my fans and their safety at my shows,” he wrote.
“I want them to have fun and enjoy the music. While I’m disappointed by the jury’s decision, I’m glad this process is over. I look forward to getting back to work and delivering new music to my fans.” he added.
The court cases deliberation lasted just two days with the jury awarding Fraissl a total of $4.5 million. Of that 4.5 million, $675,000 was deducted due to negligence on her part. Skrillex’s company, Lost Boys Touring Inc., will have to pay $3.4 million of the verdict, while the remainder, about $450,000, was charged to Belasco Entertainment Theater Inc.”
