During their OTR II tour stop in Atlanta, the power couple made an exit after they performed their single “APESHIT.” It was then that a crazy fan rushed the stage and attempted to follow the two backstage.
After finding out what was going on, backup dancers and other on-stage performers chased down the man. Security also got involved, which had fans in the audience wondering if a fight broke out backstage.
According to TMZ, the fan has been identified as Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell. He was reportedly issued a citation for disorderly conduct but was not jailed.
Beyonce’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure reacted to the incident on Instagram and says her artist and Hov are both OK. “@beyonce and JAY-Z on stage tonight in Atlanta,” she wrote. “Thank you to all the fans for your concern. They are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow.”
Sheeesh. That was scary for a moment. Luckily everyone is ok. See video of what went down below.
