Monica is said to have apologized to her fans following the discretion and continued performing.
“I seen him punch that lady in the face, I lost my f*ckin’ temper. I apologize y’all. I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I was gonna knock [his] a** out with this f*ckin’ mic.”

Appearing in an interview with CNN the Grammy nominated singer says she doesn’t feel like a hero and that she only wanted to help make sure the woman was safe. “Simply put, I didn’t want to see her hurt or harmed, and her not make it back home after coming just to be a concertgoer for myself and Ashanti (who also played at the festival),” she said.
Monica added, “I did what I hope someone would do if they saw that happening to my aunt or mother.”
We pray that the victim is doing well ♥️
