The star is struck after a gig by three men "with mace"...

MOBY has been attacked by three men in BOSTON.

The dance star was playing a show at the Boston Paradise Club in the US (December 11), as part of his ongoing tour in support of his new album ’18’.

Writing on his official website, www.moby.com, Moby claims he was attacked “with mace”.

He wrote: “After the show I went outside to get into my car. And there were a few people waiting for autographs, so as usual I stopped to sign a few things.

“And then all of a sudden I was attacked by (I believe) three men with mace. They punched me from behind and I really had no idea what was going on.

“After being punched in the head from behind a few times I turned around to see what was going on and one of them punched me in the face a couple of times and then they all ran away. So now I’m sitting here bloody and beaten up and waiting to file a police report.”

As a result of the alleged attack, Moby says he has “bruises or stitches”. He will be speaking to police in the coming days.
