Skrillex is reportedly being sued by a fan who he landed on whilst stage diving at a set in Las Vegas in February 2012.

TMZ reports that Jennifer Fraissl has filed a lawsuit following the incident at The Belasco, which she claims left her with injuries when the DJ and producer landed on her, but also led to a stroke as a result of the trauma. Fraissl is suing Skrillex for unspecified damages and also the nightclub, for failing to stop Skrillex - real name Sonny Moore – from behaving recklessly. TMZ asked both the Belasco and Skrillex for comment, but had no response.

Meanwhile, Skrillex is still yet to release a debut album. Asked about whether he had new music ready to release during an interview with Radio 1's Zane Lowe in August 2013, he said: "For sure – sooner rather than later, I'd say sooner." He explained that he has more than an album's worth of new material, but doesn't yet know what format the release will take. "I have a lot of music right now, I have more songs than an album… will it be two releases or will it be one release? I don't know. If it feels like an album, it's an album, if it doesn't then it's gonna be a 10-minute mega song." He jokingly added: "It's gonna be a 15-second country ballet!"
