A scary sight unfolded at Iggy Azalea’s concert in Brazil on Thursday.
The rapper, 28, was in the middle of performing her song “Black Widow” when her backup dancers rushed to aid one fallen dancer. That dancer began convulsing on the floor.
Azalea briefly called for medical support before continuing on with her performance. She later told fans the dancer had suffered a seizure via Azalea’s Instagram story.
“Hey guys, just want to let everyone asking know my dancer is OKAY! The lights and heat caused her to have a seizure. She is backstage feeling much better,” she wrote. “Also, for what it’s worth in regards to the backup dancer: I thought she had just fallen/twisted her ankle and it may sound harsh but; you keep singing until the music stops and ask for a medic which is what I did.”
“We are all really shaken up by what happened and just thankful she is okay,” she explained. “I know it’s easy to make memes of someone ‘passed out’ but someone having a seizure isn’t funny, it’s really scary! So I hope my fans do not repost some of the memes I’m seeing about my dancer.”
An ambulance was driven onstage and the woman was transported to the hospital.
