Bebe Rexha is recovering after being struck in the face by a cellphone while she was onstage performing in New York City Sunday night.
The “In The Name of Love” singer took to Instagram on Monday morning to show the extent of her injuries and give fans an update, simply writing, “Im good” alongside a photo of her swollen, black-and-blue eye with a cut just below her eyebrow.
The incident took place while Rexha was performing a sold-out show at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in Lower Manhattan. Video shows Rexha being hit in the face with the cellphone and falling to her knees, backstage crew members quickly came out to help the singer.
The Twitter user who posted the video, wrote, “Absolutely great show ruined by a fan throwing their phone at @BebeRexha hopefully she is ok after that.”
According to reports from ABC News, 27-year-old Nicolas Malvagna from Manalapan, New Jersey was arrested and charged with assault for allegedly hitting Rexha with the cellphone. He is expected to be arraigned Monday.
Rexha shared a follow-up video with fans to TikTok where she showed her inured eye but assured fans, “i’m okay you guys.” In the video she sings her hit song, “I’m good, yeah I’m feeling alright.”
The singer is currently performing her “Best F*n Night of My Life” tour. Her next concert is scheduled for tomorrow, June 20, in Philadelphia.
