Pop star Bebe Rexha is recovering after being hit in the face after an audience member threw a cell phone at her during her NYC concert Sunday night.
The Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum-selling singer-songwriter was taken to a hospital after the phone hit her, police said, also adding that a man had been arrested in connection with the attack.
“I’m good, yeah, I’m feelin’ alright,” she sang in a TikTok video, taking a line from “I’m Good (Blue),” her recent hit with DJ David Guetta, although a bruise and a bandage were visible above her left eye in social media posts
. According to the Associated Press, Rexha, 33, was on stage at Pier 17, a rooftop venue in Manhattan, when the phone was thrown, police said. Video posted on social media showed the phone ricocheting off the artist’s head, and then Rexha grabbing her face and sinking to her knees.
Nicolas Malvagna, 27, of New Jersey, was released without bail after being arraigned Monday on assault, aggravated harassment and other charges.
According to the AP, the court complaint reveals Malvagna told a third party he tried to hit Rexha with the phone at the end of the show because he thought “it would be funny.”
