A stage-hand is suing Katy Perry and Live Nation over allegations that she lost a toe after being injured working on the singer’s Prismatic World Tour in 2014.

Christina Fish claims that she was working on the tour when it visited Raleigh in North Carolina that year. It was there that, after being asked to help move some staging, her toe was injured after said staging rolled over her foot.

In her legal claim, Fish says that although she could feel her shoe fill with blood as a result of the injury, she was only offered ice by her colleagues, with no one calling an ambulance. She therefore had to get a friend to take her to the emergency room. Her injured toe subsequently became gangrenous and eventually had to be amputated.

Fish is seeking damages for the injury, the impact it had on her life, and the emotional distress it caused. A number of stage productions companies are listed as defendants alongside show promoter Live Nation and Perry herself.
