Rihanna strikes fan with mike
Rihanna is not one to trifle with.
The pop star remains unapologetic for striking a fan with her microphone, saying she did it on purpose.
When a fan got too clingy at a recent concert, the singer used her microphone to hit the fan – and it was caught on video. YouTube footage has emerged of Rihanna, 25, apparently using her microphone after her arm was grabbed.
While performing at a stop on her latest world tour in Birmingham, England, on Monday, the star is seen reaching out to fans and touching hands as she sang We Found Love.
But when one fan grabs her sleeves and holds on too long, she was quick to react.
Rihanna took to Instagram to say she did it on “purpose”. She added: “That b**** won’t let me go”.
The incident took place in front of crowd control barriers, with the Barbadian singer flanked by several security guards.
According to some news reports, Rihanna hit the fan in the face but that could not be verified by the footage.
The superstar is currently on her Diamonds world tour in the United Kingdom. (DR/people.com/sky.com)
