Bebe Rexha Kicks Out Concertgoer for Throwing Things at Her, Jokes About Pressing Charges

In 2023, Bebe Rexha sustained a serious facial injury after a concertgoer threw a phone at her during a show. One year later, the pop star isn’t playing around when it comes to poor audience behavior.

During the singer’s Saturday show in Green Bay, Wisconsin, fan cameras captured Rexha matter-of-factly directing security to escort a fan out of the venue. “Out, out,” she says in one clip posted on TikTok. “Or, if you wanna hit me in the face, I had to press charges for the other guy — I’d love to become richer.”

As fans cheered, she clarified: “I’m not inviting that, please. It was just a joke.”

The fan who posted the video wrote that the “I’m a Mess” artist was forced to stop her performance two separate times because of attendees throwing things at her. “Like 10 people were escorted out because [of] it throughout the show,” they added.

By “the other guy,” Rexha was referring to Nicolas Malvagna, whom police arrested last year for hurling his cell phone at the musician’s face while she was performing in New York City. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office later reported that the assailant had said in his confession, “I was trying to see if I could hit her with the phone at the end of the show because it would be funny.”

Malvagna was reportedly charged at the time with two counts of assault in the third degree, as well as one count of harassment in the second degree, one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree and a count of attempted assault in the third degree. Meanwhile, Rexha dealt with a gnarly injury to her eye, photos of which she shared on Instagram shortly after the attack.

“I’m good,” she wrote at the time, showing off her deep purple bruise.

Rexha is fresh off the May 17 release of her new single “Chase It (Mmm Da Da Da).” In 2023, she released her album Bebe.
