“Valentine’s Day Swerve!” Tyrese Shoves Female Fan When She Leaps On Stage For A Hug
Recently, a fan at Tyrese’s Valentine’s Day Jam concert in Detroit got an unpleasant surprise. She wanted a hug from the R&B singer, but she got a stiff-arm from him instead.
TMZ reported that one fan’s Valentine’s Day plans went left when she decided to bum-rush the stage in an effort to get a hug from the “Sweet Lady” crooner. But she was in for a rude awakening. Maybe she was so overcome with emotion from Tyrese’s voice that jumping on stage to embrace the Transformers star seemed like a good idea. But it was not.
As you’ll see in the video below, Tyrese finishes up his set by saying, “I love ya’ll,” and then proceeds to walk offstage as he wipes off his face with a towel. Immediately after removing the towel, a young lady leaps on stage, arms open to grab the 39-year-old by the waist, and that’s when Tyrese gives her a good shove to the chest. He backs up in a fighting stance, prepared for anything, and the girl stumbles back, picking up something that came off her person when she was rightfully swerved.
To his credit, I think he was just startled. I mean, he had just finished wiping his face, so who knows how good his eyesight was in the moment, and then even as a performer, you’re never fully-prepared for a fan rushing at you. With all the crazies in the world, you just never know.
The young woman was escorted off stage, and when Tyrese realized that she just wanted to show love, he is seen smiling and pointing at the audience, saying something that you can’t hear in the video, but I assume it is something “very Tyrese,” perhaps a mini-lecture on “What not to do at a love jam concert?”
