Lana Del Rey ‘knocked down’ by fan at Antwerp show

Footage has emerged of the incident

Lana Del Rey was reportedly knocked over by a fan who jumped a barrier at her show in Antwerp this week.

The singer played a concert at Sportpaleis in the Belgian city on Tuesday night (April 17), with footage emerging of a male fan appearing to jump over a railing onto the stage while Del Rey was performing.

One gig-goer told Evening Standard that the individual “jumped towards” Del Rey and “wanted to hug her”, adding: “Lana fell, but more because she was surprised and scared by the guy… Security was really, really quick – it was a matter of seconds.”

Del Rey appeared to refer to the incident in a tweet, writing: “Doing great thank you! I know jiu jitsu and all of my stilettos have blades in the heels”.

Earlier this week saw Lana Del Rey’s Miles Kane collaboration ‘Loaded’ released. The first track to be taken from Kane’s upcoming new solo album ‘Coup De Grace’, the song was also written with Jamie T.


Last month, Del Rey suggested that her lawsuit with Radiohead has come to an end.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Del Rey had been accused of copyright infringement due to supposed similarities in elements of Radiohead’s 1993 hit ‘Creep’ and her ‘Lust For Life’ album track ‘Get Free’.

Del Rey hinted that the feud has come to an end during her set at Lollapalooza Brasil. Fans started to chant for ‘Get Free’ during to encore – to which she responded: “Now that my lawsuit’s over, I guess I can sing that song any time I want, right?”
