Rapper 50 Cent smacked a woman in the head with a broken microphone during a show at the Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday, according to TMZ. Bryhana Monegain, a Power 106 host, told The Neighborhood Talk that she had to go to the ER and get sutures for a forehead injury.
On Wednesday night, 50 Cent performed on stage with special guest YG as part of his “Final Lap” tour 2023. Several mics that didn’t work were delivered to him during the performance. Frustrated, he hurled one of the mics, which struck Monegain, according to TMZ. According to sources close to the incident, Monegain was in a restricted area.
Monegain showed The Neighborhood Talk images of her injury. 50 Cent and his management have yet to respond to the event, and it is unknown whether Monegain intends to seek charges.
Just last month, a video of Cardi B tossing her microphone at a concertgoer who threw a drink at her while she was performing went viral on the internet. During an outdoor show at Drai’s Beach club in Las Vegas, the 30-year-old singer appears astonished when a drink is thrown at her while she plays her song “Bodak Yellow.”
Cardi retaliates by throwing her microphone at the concertgoer, who is escorted from the crowd by security. According to reports, Cardi resumed to perform once her team calmed her down. The fan who was hit by the microphone filed a police report, but the singer was found not guilty.
