Katy Perry 'Being Sued' After Stagehand Loses A Toe On Prismatic World Tour
The incident resulted in amputation.
Katy Perry is reportedly facing a lawsuit after a former stagehand on her Prismatic World Tour sustained an injury on set that resulted in her toe being amputated.
A woman by the name of Christina Fish claims that she was required to move a wall in preparation for Katy's show in Raleigh back in 2014 when the structure became stuck and suddenly rolled over her foot.

According to TMZ, the stagehand then noticed that her shoe began to fill up with blood. Even so, Christina claims that while she was offered ice, nobody decided to call her an ambulance and she was forced to phone a friend to take her to ER.
Unfortunately, the toe soon became gangernous and the medical decision was made to amputate. Christina alleges that she was unable to use her foot for months and that the doctor's advice to leave 'the dead toe on' for as long as possible prior to removal caused her great emotional distress.
The stagehand is suing Katy Perry, Live Nation, and a bunch of other stage production companies for an undisclosed sum of money.
