According to Rolling Stone: A Concertgoer who claims they were hit by Cardi B‘s microphone at the rapper’s Las Vegas show on Saturday has filed a police report.
“On July 30, 2023, an individual came into an LVMPD police station to report a battery,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) told Rolling Stone in a statement. While police did not mention Cardi B by name in their statement, the address on the incident report matched the location where she was performing on Saturday. “During a concert, she was struck by an item that was thrown from the stage.”
According to the police, No arrest or authority has been issued Cardi B‘s representative did not respond to Rolling Stone‘s request for comment.
Over the weekend, Cardi B was playing at Drai’s Beach Club in Las Vegas when an audience member tossed a drink at her on stage.
A video of the event went viral, showing Cardi B being flooded with the liquid while performing “Bodak Yellow.” Cardi B, visibly frightened, reacted by tossing her microphone at the concertgoers in the audience.
From various angles, the incident has started which is spreading online, including one from a woman alleging she was hit with the microphone despite not throwing the drink.
“I’m bruised and sore,” the fan wrote in a TikTok. However, it is not clear if she is the person who filed the police report or another. Rolling Stone reached out to her for comment.
The drama occurs in the midst of a wave of questionable concert behavior by supporters. Bebe Rexha needed sutures last month when a concertgoer threw his phone at her, striking her in the head.
Ava Max was slapped in the face days later during a gig in Los Angeles as an audience member rushed to the stage. Meanwhile, a fan also appeared to have thrown their mother’s ashes at Pink during a concert in London last week, and Kelsea Ballerini was hit in the eye by a bracelet just days later.
However, Morgan Wallen caught a boot to the chest too. Most recently, Harry Styles was struck in the eye with an unknown object during his concert in Vienna.
