Bebe Rexha has updated fans with photos of her injuries after being struck by a cellphone that a concertgoer had thrown at Bebe while she was performing on stage.
The 33-year old singer was taken for to the hospital after being hit in the face by a phone during a concert on Sunday, June 18 at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in New York City. Twitter user Alex Chavez shared a video that shows Rexha falling to the ground after being struck by the device, writing: “Absolutely great show ruined by a fan throwing their phone at @BebeRexha hopefully she is ok after that.”
Bebe shared an update with fans on her injuries, posting two photos on Instagram along with the caption: “I’m good.” In the first pic, Bebe gives the camera a thumbs up but is sporting heavy bruising around her eye and medical tape on her brow. The second photo from right after the incident shows Bebe’s eye beginning to swell, with a cut running straight through her eyebrow.
27-year-old concertgoer Nicolas Malvagna from Manalapan, New Jersey, was arrested and charged with assault for allegedly throwing the cellphone at Rexha.
