Pop star Rihanna has been caught on film appearing to lash out at a fan, hitting them with her microphone while performing on her Diamonds World Tour.
A touchy fan got a little too close for comfort during Rihanna’s Diamonds World Tour performance in England.
Sadly, the audience member got a surprise meet-and-greet with the singer’s microphone.
The 25-year-old ‘Diamonds’ singer went down onto the floor of the concert venue in Birmingham, England, on Monday night (UK time) to perform her hit song ‘We Found Love’.
While hands were stretched in hopes to touch Rihanna, one clingy fan held on to her jacket a little too long. She hit the woman over the top of the head with a mic, and never skipped a beat.
One person attending the concert tweeted:
“[Rihanna] just hit someone with her mic on accident haha oops.”
To which Rihanna reportedly replied, “Purpose! That b-tch wouldn’t let me go.”
The tweet has since been deleted from her account.
It seems as though fans have been crossing the line when it comes to their celebrity obsessions. Last month, Beyoncé threatened to have a concert-goer escorted out after he slapped on her butt.
