Skrillex stage dived into the audience during a 2012 performance at The Belasco Theater in Los Angele, California. An attendee he struck named Jennifer Fraissl experienced a seizure days later, and she has now won a lawsuit against him, his touring company, and the venue totaling $4.5 million.

A court found Fraissl to be 15% responsible for the injury, so she was not awarded the full amount. Skrillex himself must pay $1.6 million, and his touring company, Lost Boys, will have to pay another $1.8 million. Finally, The Belasco must compensate Fraissl to the tune of $450,000.

“There is nothing more important to me than my fans and their safety at my shows," Skrillex said in a statement following the ruling. "I want them to have fun and enjoy the music.”
