Nicki Minaj had to abandon a show in California on Friday night (August 14), after it descended into a series of brawls and security used pepper spray on the crowd, reports say.
The show, part of The Print Pink Tour, stopped halfway through a song due to the fighting, according to TMZ. They also quote the local police, who say a 22-year-old man was arrested for assault on a security guard.
Videos posted on social media appear to show Minaj quite shaken by the incident, but assisting a girl who affected by the pepper spray from the stage. The fighting is thought to have been sparked by people pushing to get closer to the stage.
A Nicki Minaj news feed, @Nickireigns, tweeted a video of the aftermath of the pepper spray incident, showing Minaj asking the fan involved to come to the stage and asking security to give her some water.
