Bebe Rexha kicked out concertgoer who tried to throw something at her


Last summer Bebe Rexha had to end a New York concert early when a “fan” threw his cell phone at her, causing Bebe to need stitches over her eye. Upon his arrest, the “fan” said he thought it would be a “funny” thing to do. The NYPD, in turn, thought it would be a fair thing to charge him with assault. I thought we were well and truly done with people throwing sh-t at Bebe onstage, but I was merely lulled into a false sense of complacency. Last month Bebe had police escort a group out of a show in Wisconsin, and now the situation has gone international: Bebe just kicked out a concertgoer for trying to throw something at her during her Palmesus Festival tour stop in Kristiansand, Norway. I’ll believe any story about a fellow American involved in reckless-cum-dangerous activity, but Scandinavia is the last place on earth I thought we’d see this behavior. Et tu, Norway?

Bebe Rexha booted an audience member — and threatened legal action against them — for attempting to throw an object at her during her show in Norway over the weekend.

The “I’m Good (Blue)” singer, 34, abruptly halted her concert on Saturday after an unruly fan tried to throw something at her while she was on stage, according to video circulating on social media.

“If you hit me with something on stage, I’ll take you for everything you’ve f–king done. Do not f–king play with me right now,” the pop star told the crowd, adding, “Out! Get the f–k out.”

Rexha’s supporters applauded the pop star for standing up for herself. She then asked her fans to identify the culprit before having security step in.

“Which one?” she asked her fans. “Point to the person. I want to see them.”

Rexha repeatedly told the perpetrator off, shouting, “Out! Get the f–k out! That’s it. It’s done for you.”

The alleged agitator was then seen attempting to hop over the barricade by the stage before being captured and escorted out by security as the audience erupted into boos.

The “Me, Myself & I” artist was not taking any chances at her show this time around.

Last summer, Rexha sustained a black eye and needed stitches after a similar incident unfolded at her New York City concert in June 2023.

Rexha was performing at The Rooftop at Pier 17 when the alleged assailant, Nicolas Malvagna, tossed his cell phone at the unsuspecting songstress.

She fell to the stage in pain and had to go to the hospital where she was patched up with multiple stitches.

Malvagna, a New Jersey resident, was arrested and charged with assault. As part of a plea deal, Malvagna was sentenced to 40 days of community service.

A year later, the Grammy nominee was again attacked by a concertgoer who tossed an object in her direction while she was performing in Green Bay, Wis., this past June.

Rexha had to stop her show and she informed the crowd that the police had been called to remove the offender.

Stop this insanity! As I’ve bemoaned before, this is the most basic, kindergarten-level, nay preschool-age lesson we’re taught as children: don’t throw things at people!! After Bebe’s attack a year ago, it felt like we got a cascade of performers sharing their projectile war stories, ranging from the humorous to the macabre. I’m still utterly dumbfounded by the underlying psychology at play here. How do you go from “I’ll buy a $300 ticket to see so-and-so,” to “I know! I’ll throw something at them so I get kicked out and possibly arrested!” As a measure of international theatrical security, I think it’s time that Lady Gaga shares her invisible forcefield/shield technology — it’s either netting or magic, more data is required — with touring performers across the globe. For safety’s sake.

Now, if you’re a nerd like me, then upon reading this article your third thought was also, “huh, I wonder how you say ‘get the f–k out!’ in Norwegian.” (Maybe the concertgoer didn’t know what she was saying!) Well Google Translate tells me it’s “få faen ut,” pronounced “fuh-FAH-newt,” which I think we can all agree is way more fun to say than “get the f–k out.” So yes, I will absolutely be adding it into my repertoire. I live in New York; the more ways to swear, the merrier.

    I feel like Covid quarantines turned some people into untrained puppies. So f*cking weird to pay for an event and try to assault the performer for giggles.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    Sadly this type of behaviour is on the rise – I blame tik toc and there stupid ‘challenges’ as most of these idiots film themselves doing it then post it online for their ‘followers’. I’ve seen grown adults do these challenges as well so its not just for the young.

    There is not cure for stupidity.

  3. Roo says:

    As long as these idiots don’t suffer serious penalties, people will keep doing this. They need to be given harsher sentences – time in custody plus community service – and face civil liability for the damages. Community service will not deter this type of crime. I feel so sorry for Bebe. In her situation, I would feel so stressed going on stage each time.

    I’m someone that has been to 8-10 concerts per year over the past 25 years & I’ve not seen this happen except for bras, panties, beach balls, etc… no logic in a “fan” doing this at all!

      I’ve never seen this either, thankfully, but I’m so glad she kicked the person out. This should not be tolerated, and I’m glad the other concert goers didn’t cover for him.

    There is a cure for stupidity; it’s called education. Unfortunately, it’s out of favor these days.

    Don’t add “få faen ut” to your vocabulary, it’s not idiomatic, no one would say that in Norwegian. Maybe “Kom deg ut, for faen” or “Kom deg ut, for helvete”.
