A concertgoer hit Bebe Rexha in the face with a cell phone at the end of her Sunday night show in New York Sunday (June 18th). Video surfaced online of the 33-year-old toward the crowd during the last song of her concert, when a phone flew at her, hitting her in the side of the head. According to reports, Rexha cancelled her planned meet and greet following the incident. She needed three stitches at the hospital after the event. One man has been arrested.
The Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum-selling singer-songwriter was taken to a hospital after the phone hit her, police said. A bruise and a bandage were visible above her left eye in social media posts she made Monday.
“What I’m learning is that not everybody is going to connect with you and understand you, and that’s OK,” she told The Associated Press in April, shortly before the release of her latest album, “Bebe.”
“And I feel like you have to just be your realest, truest version of yourself because, at the end of the day, if you try to change yourself to be liked by other people, you’re not really being yourself,” she added.
