Bebe Rexha Struck in the Face by Phone During Concert in New York

Bebe Rexha was seen falling to the ground after being struck in the head by a fan’s phone while performing on stage.

The incident happened in New York on Sunday (18 June) when a concertgoer launched the device at her.

Bebe Rexha was performing on the Rooftop at Pier 17 as part of her Best F’n Night of My Life tour.

In the fan-captured video, Bebe is approaching the front of the stage when a phone flies out from the crowd and into her face.

She then falls to her knees, with a group of crew members rushing onstage to help her.

Nicolas Malvagna, 27, of Manalapan, New Jersey, is accused of throwing the phone. He was arrested at the venue and charged with felony assault for using his cell phone as a weapon.

Bebe was taken to the hospital and received three stitches. On Monday morning, she shared a photo of her injured eye giving a thumbs up.

"I'm good," she captioned the photo.
