Absolutely Ridiculous: Deranged Fan Hits Rihanna With A Bottle
Just when you thought you’ve witnessed the ultimate lengths that a “stan” would go to in order to prove their love and dedication or intense disdain for a celebrity, things like this happen and you’re reminded of just how crazy people can be. Over the weekend, Rihanna, joined by gal pal Cara Delevigne and longtime friend, Melissa partied at nightclub, The Box, in celebration of London Fashion Week and the debut of Rih Rih’s first clothing collection for fashion line, River Island. Unfortunately, the celebratory night ended on a negative note when an anonymous, deranged fan hurled a Lucozade sports drink bottle at the “Diamonds” singer and yelled obscenities at her about her on-again off-again boyfriend, Chris Brown, reports Daily Mail.
Although the bottle itself didn’t injure Rih Rih, the uproar caused by the fan’s assault caused the singer to stumble and hit her leg against a store shutter, leaving a small cut on her knee. While the injury was small, reports suggest that she still sought out immediate medical attention. The person who made the assault against the singer was never identified, as their cowardly deed was done while they stood among a crowd of people.
The “We Found Love” singer doesn’t appear to have allowed the incident to get her down though. According to the Instagram accounts of her companions for that night, the celebrating only continued after they left the nightclub. While Rihanna’s injuries don’t appear to have been serious, it’s absolutely ridiculous that a person would get so upset over the actions of a person they don’t even know, that they would find it necessary to physically assault them.
We’re glad Rihanna is okay.
What do you make of this foolishness?
