Katy Perry might still be on a high from hosting the MTV Video Music Awards yesterday but she’s about to come crashing back down to earth.
In a bizarre turn of events, one of the singer’s former stagehands Christina Fish is alleging that while working on Perry’s Prismatic Tour in 2014 she sustained an injury — an injury that eventually led to the amputation of her right big toe.
The wall became stuck and, in an effort to free it, it rolled over her foot.
The stagehand said she felt her shoe fill with blood and despite being offered ice, she claims no one called an ambulance and she instead had to call her friend to drive her to the hospital.
Despite the hospital visit, Christina’s right toe eventually became gangrenous and had to be amputated.
She also alleges she wasn’t able to use her foot for months and is claiming for emotional distress because the doctors instructed her to leave her “dead toe” on for as long as possible for a clean amputation.
Christina is suing Perry, Live Nation and a number of stage production companies over the incident.
TMZ has also published photos of the gruesome injury that are definitely not for the faint-hearted.
Katy Perry’s Prismatic World Tour was to promote her fourth studio album Prism.
The tour began in Northern Ireland on May 7, 2014 and finished in Costa Rica on October 18, 2015.
It became Perry’s most successful tour to date after grossing more than $200 million.
