Katy Perry Is Facing Lawsuit From Stagehand Who Lost Her Toe During Tour


The stagehand allegedly lost her toe during an accident while working as a stagehand at Katy's Prismatic World Tour in 2014.
Katy Perry is being sued by a stagehand who allegedly lost her toe during an accident while working at the singer's Prismatic World Tour in 2014. The stagehand, named Christina Fish, claims in her suit that the accident occurred during Katy's concert in Raleigh, North Carolina.

During Katy's concert, Christina was asked to help move a wall, according to TMZ. However, it later got stuck and then rolled across her foot. At the time, she felt her shoe fill up with blood.

Christina was reportedly offered ice but no one called for an ambulance. She had to call a friend to pick her up and take her to the ER. According to the stagehand, her right toe became gangrenous and eventually needed to be amputated. She wasn't able to use her foot for months.

Christina says she suffered great emotional distress, because orthopedic doctors ordered her to keep her "dead toe" on as long as possible before the eventual amputation. She says she could no longer pursue her passion for yoga because she has lost her toe.

Christina is suing Katy, Live Nation and a bunch of stage production companies for a large sum of money.

A representative for the "Swish Swish" hitmaker hasn't responded to a request for comment.

Katy closed her epic 151-show "Prismatic World Tour" in Costa Rica in October 2015. During the tour, the "Chained to the Rhythm" singer visited parts of Europe, Asia, Australia, and North and South America.

Shortly before the final show, Katy wrote on Twitter, "ONE. LAST. TIME. #ThePrismaticWorldTour #151. 151 shows later it is only By The Grace Of God that I made each & every one of them. Thank you, time to grow now..."
