JAY-Z’s TIDAL X concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to benefit those impacted by the recent string of natural disasters — including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, as well as the Mexico earthquakes — was sadly the site of an alleged assault that left a security guard bloodied.
“A complaint report for an assault was made inside 620 Atlantic Avenue last night,” the NYPD tells ET in a statement. “Security ejected two people from the stadium, when one of them punched the security guard causing a laceration to his forehead. That suspect fled on foot. The victim was taken to Lutheran Hospital by EMS in stable condition.”
Despite the altercation, the star-studded concert brought a slew of big names out for a good cause, featuring performances by Jennifer Lopez, Fifth Harmony, DJ Khaled, Kaskade, Cardi B and many more.
JAY-Z performed at the event, and had the support of his wife, Beyoncé, though the Lemonade singer did not take the stage herself.
