Singer Monica Stops Concert to Confront Man Punishing Woman

Singer Monica stopped her show in Detroit to defend a woman who was being attacked in the audience.

Video from Saturday night Riverfront Music Festival showed the “Boy Is Mine” singer jumping off the stage to confront the male attacker.

Fans cheered for permission and Monica’s security guards followed her into the crowd.

“You don’t hit no fuckin’ woman like that,” she warned before the man was kicked out of the festival.

After the incident, Monica came back on stage and apologized to the fans for losing their cool.

“That shit took me,” she said. “I saw him punch that woman in the face, I lost my fuckin temper. I apologize to you. I apologize from the bottom of my heart.”

Still a little heated, the ’90s hitmaker admitted, “I was going to knock [his] ass out with this fuckin’ son.”

Monica longer faced the fight featured on The Shade Room’s Instagram on Sunday.

“I apologized there and I’m apologizing here for my actions but no one would take action!” she wrote. “I was so inspired, I looked and she didn’t even seem to know him!”

“It sounded like space during a packed concert!” she continued. “He hit her with all his might! I had intended to prevent her from being hit again and she hadn’t! I asked for help, it fell on deaf ears! It was like attacking my mother or aunt!! This lady was 50+, I pray she is ok!”

In a statement to CBS News, Riverfront Music Festival spokesman Andrus Macdonald said Monica suggested for taking action.

“We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Monica for her courage and decisive intervention during an unfortunate incident at our Festival,” he said. “Her actions demonstrated a commitment to the safety and respect of her fans, reinforcing our belief that she is not only an extraordinary talent, but also an extraordinary individual.”

He went on to say that the organizers were “deeply saddened that an event meant to bring joy and unity to our community was disrupted by an act of violence” and are currently working with law enforcement to hold the attacker accountable.

Surprisingly, this wasn’t even Monica’s first attempt at crowd management this year.

During a concert in Washington, DC, in April, the star told restless audience members to “relax the anchor” or take their problems away.
