Katy Perry being sued by stagehand who lost toe during her tour

The woman claims she was only given ice for the injury, which resulted in amputation.

A stagehand who lost a toe during Katy Perry‘s Prismatic world tour in 2014 is suing the singer for an undisclosed amount.

According to TMZ, Christina Fish was hired as a stagehand for the tour back in 2014, when she was asked to move a wall at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina on June 22, 2014.

She claims the wall got stuck and then rolled over her foot, with the resulting injury filling her shoe with blood.


Apparently, Fish was offered ice for her foot, but with no-one calling an ambulance, she was left to call a friend to take her to ER.

Her right toe became gangrenous and was eventually amputated, leaving the stagehand with “great emotional distress” as doctors insisted she kept the dead toe on as long as possible before removal.

You can see (very graphic) images over on TMZ.

It’s not known how much Fish is asking for, but it’s reported she’s also suing Live Nation and a number of stage production companies, as well as Perry.

Katy Perry hosted the MTV VMAs on Sunday night (August 27).


Last week it was announced that the singer was delaying the start of her Witness world tour “due to unavoidable production delays”.

The tour will arrive in the UK in June 2018.
