Oh, for heaven’s sake! Can we not behave like civilized beings anymore? The outrageously talented Bebe Rexha faced an unthinkable incident while mesmerizing her fans in New York City on June 18. Amidst the exhilarating atmosphere of the “Best F’n Night of My Life” tour at the Rooftop at Pier 17, a senseless act unfolded that left everyone shaken. Out of the blue, a mobile phone soared through the air, targeting Bebe’s delicate face. The footage captured by a brave audience member portrays the heart-wrenching moment of impact and the sheer force with which it struck her.
The pain that consumed Bebe was palpable as she crumpled onto the stage, the weight of anguish visible in her eyes. Her devoted team swiftly intervened, rushing to her side to guide her away from the bewildered crowd. Reports indicate that a 27-year-old concertgoer from New Jersey stands accused of hurling the phone and now faces charges of assault. The local NYC affiliate, ABC7, has confirmed that the suspect is in police custody and will be arraigned on June 19. Regrettably, no official update has been released by Bebe’s team regarding her condition. Although sources have reached out for comment, they are still awaiting a response.
Bebe, an artist brimming with confidence and vibrancy, has had her electrifying performance brutally curtailed due to this act of violence. Those fortunate enough to have witnessed her live performances can attest to the unparalleled passion she pours into each show, an authentic expression of her true self.
In a candid interview, Bebe opened up about her personal journey, acknowledging that self-acceptance is a gradual process. She revealed, “I believe it’s a transformative experience, a passage through different phases. You don’t simply awaken one day and declare, ‘I’m a fearless force.’ For me, it was a voyage filled with self-doubt, where I would often berate myself with harsh words. Embracing self-love requires constant effort. We must learn to speak kindly to ourselves, for we readily extend warmth and compassion to others. It was during my lowest point that I made a pivotal shift, flipping the script and choosing self-affirmation,” Bebe shared, her voice touched with resilience.
Undeterred by this harrowing incident, Bebe’s tour is set to continue with five upcoming concerts in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Atlanta, Orlando, and Houston. Let us fervently hope and pray that Bebe makes a swift and complete recovery, undeterred by the dark shadow cast over her New York performance. She deserves to reclaim the stage and inspire countless souls once more.
