Bebe Rexha Taken to Hospital, Shares Injuries After Being Struck by Cellphone While Performing

The singer was hit in the face during her New York City concert.

Bebe Rexha is recovering after being struck in the face by a cellphone while she was onstage performing in New York City on 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, "I'm 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 Pier 17's The Rooftop 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."

A spokesperson for the NYPD tells ET of the incident, "On Sunday, June 18, 2023 at approximately 10 PM, police were notified of an assault that occurred at the concert space of Pier 17 located at 89 South Street, within the confines of the 1st Precinct. A preliminary investigation on scene determined that a 27-year-old male intentionally threw a cell phone at a 33-year-old female performer on stage, striking her about the face. The individual was taken into custody on scene and removed to the 1st Precinct for arrest processing. The aided female was removed by EMS to an area hospital in stable condition."

ET confirmed 27-year-old Nicolas Malvagna from Manalapan, New Jersey, was arrested and charged with felony assault for allegedly hitting Rexha with the cellphone. He was arraigned and released on his own recognizance and a full temporary order of protection was issued. His next court date is July 31.

In the complaint, it states Malvagna told police, "I was trying to see if I could hit her with the phone at the end of the show because it would be funny."

Malvagna's lawyer, Todd Spodek (who notably represented Anna Delvey) told ET, "Nicolas, like many other fans, was hoping to interact in some way with Ms. Rexha as the phone was returned. It was never his intention to injure Ms. Rexha in any way."

Rexha shared a follow-up video with fans to TikTok where she showed her inured eye but assured fans, "I'm OK you guys." In the video, she sings, "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 Tuesday, June 20, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
