The singer was involved in an incident outside a LA studio on Wednesday (May 6)
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine was hit with powdered sugar while signing autographs for fans on Wednesday (May 6).
As CNN reports, Levine was the studios of US TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Los Angeles, where the band were filming a segment for the late-night show, when a member of the crowd threw what is being described as a “sugar bomb” at the singer. The stunt is thought to refer to the band’s hit single ‘Sugar’.
Levine was not hurt during the incident, but a male in his 30s has been arrested on suspicion of battery.
“It looked like he wanted to fight the guy,” audience member Laura Tijerina told CNN. “I think this guy had it planned. It was a brown bag with tape around it, which was weird. I just saw powder everywhere. It was just so quick.”

Last month, Levine called an overly affectionate stage invader “super terrifying”. The frontman was interrupted during his band’s gig at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on April 6, with an enthusiastic fan making her way onto the stage and proceeding to hug Levine. The singer then wrestled his way from the fan and waved her away, looking visibly shaken.
Levine later told the crowd, “It’s just weird to be in the moment, you know? And you’re singing, and your eyes are closed, and you have this beautiful moment. And then the next thing you know someone’s fucking in your face. It’s super terrifying.”
