American singer and songwriter, Bebe Rexha, is recovering after she was hit with a phone when performing in New York City.

The unfortunate incident occurred when the 33-year-old singer was performing a sold-out show at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in Lower Manhattan on Sunday.

Videos of the moment Rexha was hit by the phone and fell to her knees have been shared online. Her backstage crew members rushed to help her.

“Absolutely great show ruined by a fan throwing their phone at @BebeRexha hopefully she is ok after that,” a tweep who shared the video wrote.

“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,” an NYPD spokesperson stated.

In an Instagram post, Rexha posted a photo of her swollen, black-and-blue eye with a cut just below her eyebrow with the caption: “Im good”.

Bebe Rexha also assured her fans “i’m okay you guys” in a TikTok video and sang her hit song, “I’m good, yeah I’m feeling alright.”

Following the incident, 27-year-old Nicolas Malvagna from Manalapan, New Jersey was arrested and charged with felony assault for allegedly hitting Rexha with the phone. He is expected to be arraigned Monday.
