During a performance in New York, the renowned artist fell to her knees when a thrown object struck her on the side of her head. Despite being in apparent pain, she was escorted out of the venue with her hands covering her face. A video shared online captured the moment security removed a man from the crowd as fans voiced their outrage, accusing him of assault.
Later, the New York Police confirmed that a 27-year-old concert attendee had been charged with assault. The incident occurred during the pop singer’s recent ‘Best F’n Night of My Life‘ tour at the Rooftop at Pier 17 in New York, where a fan threw a mobile phone at her, causing her to collapse.
Bebe Rexha, in a TikTok video, removed her dark sunglasses to reveal a bruised eye while singing her song ‘Im Good (Blue),’ assuring her followers that she was alright.
Reports indicated that the singer received stitches for her wound, as confirmed by her mother. The person responsible for throwing the phone was apprehended and arrested at the concert. Identified as Nicolas Malvagna from Manalapan, N.J., the 27-year-old assailant deliberately hurled the cellphone at Bebe Rexha, according to a statement by the police.
Earlier this year, Bebe Rexha released her latest album, ‘Bebe,’ following her 2021 LP ‘Better Mistakes.’ The album, which was released on April 28, featured the lead single ‘Heart Wants What It Wants‘ and included collaborations with notable artists such as Snoop Dogg, Dolly Parton, and David Guetta. Snoop Dogg featured on the track ‘Satellite,’ while Dolly Parton lent her vocals to the closing track ‘Seasons.’
