Tila Tequila Attacked at Music Festival
Reality TV star Tila Tequila reportedly suffered some cuts and bruises after she was pelted with rocks and bottles while performing at a music festival organized for hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse.
Sheriff Tom Seiner said the incident ocurred on Saturday during the Gathering of the Juggalos music festival held in Hardin County, Illinois. A performer who saw the commotion said that a mob chased Tequila from the stage and even followed the 28-year-old men’s magazines model and singer when she hid inside her trailer. Tequila, whose real name is Tila Nguyen, was able to leave the concert site but not before the mob smashed the windows of her SUV, the witness said.
Tequila corroborated the statements of the witness, when she talked about the incident on Twitter. “I went onstage and immediately, before I even got on stage, dudes were throwing huge stone rocks in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair … cuz they threw firecrackers on stage,” Tequila said in one of her online posts.
But what really set off the angry mob? “She took her top off and they got really violent,” the witness said.
