Manchester, UK – Lil Tjay’s recent trip to the UK has been a memorable one for mostly the wrong reasons. During a performance in Manchester on Tuesday (November 16), a fan appeared to throw a water bottle at the Bronx rapper, causing him to stop the show and threaten to fight the culprit by offering him out on stage.
“I’m not playing no more,” he said after getting hit. “Chill out. Hold on, pause that. Who wanna fight? Who gangsta enough to do that? You wanna fight? Pull up to the front. Swear to God.”
He continued, “Bring him on the stage. I wanna show him how my hands really work. Hold on, let him up. I’ma bring you up. Oh aight, who was it? Alright, here we go. Y’all n-ggas is bored out here, I ain’t wanna hear nothing.”
Another video shows Lil Tjay’s security guard slapping a fan after bringing him to the photo pit, followed by another water bottle getting thrown on stage.
According to a Twitter user who was at the Manchester Academy show, the incident happened less than 30 minutes into the set, with the concert ending shortly after.
“Someone threw a bottle of water at him about 25 mins into his set,” a fan wrote. “he stopped the performance, took of his chains and tried to get the guy up on stage. Played another song and a half and cut it short.”
Just days before, Lil Tjay was involved in another incident following a club appearance at Switch in Southampton on Thursday (November 11). After a 1:45 a.m. stage time, videos surfaced on social media of the rapper defending himself while being attacked by a group of people in the street.
Although there are no confirmed reports, it’s rumored people were attempting to steal his chain.
As part of his Destined 2 Win Tour, Lil Tjay also performed in London at the O2 Academy Brixton on Friday (November 12), followed by a show in Birmingham on Sunday (November 14). He’s set to close out his UK run with a trip to Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday (November 18).
