Watch out — Rod Stewart’s soccer balls can be dangerous. At least, that’s the claim in a new lawsuit filed against the “Maggie May” singer.
A lawsuit filed against Stewart in Clark County district court in Nevada on Monday claims that the singer injured a concertgoer during an October 2012 show in Las Vegas.
In his complaint, Mostafa Kashe says that he was at Stewart’s concert at Caesars Palace when Stewart “intentionally kicked multiple soccer balls into the crowd of the concert.”
The complaint claims that Stewart was “negligent, careless, and/or reckless, and the soccer balls were kicked with sufficient force so as to potentially injure patrons of the concert.”
Kashe claims that he was “unexpectedly hit in the face by a soccer ball” kicked by Stewart and “sustained injuries to his face that required and continue to require medical attention.”
Specifically, Kashe claims, he sustained medical and cosmetic injuries including a nasal cavity fracture.
A spokesperson for Stewart has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
Alleging negligence, Kashe is seeking damages “in an amount of excess of $10,000,” plus lost wages and attorney’s fees.
Maybe Stewart should stick to Nerf balls in the future.
