A 27-year-old man has been charged with assault after pop star Bebe Rexha was hit in the face with a phone at a performance in New York.
Nicolas Malvagna, from New Jersey, was arrested on Sunday following the incident, which left the singer with facial injuries. Videos shared online from the gig show the phone flying through the air and hitting the star on her forehead, causing her to stumble back and then fall to her knees.
She later reassured fans she was “fine”, posting a picture of her face, which showed a large purple bruise on her eyelid and stitching tape on her eyebrow. In another picture, which appeared to be taken on the night of the gig, a long cut could be seen underneath her eyebrow while her eyelid looked swollen.
