Worst Ever: Tila Tequila Attacked at Concert

Any “news” pertaining to Tila Tequila needs to be taken with a grain of salt since the model/actress/reality show star/musician/socialite tends to do a lot of things in the name of attention and she does seem to be in the tabloids often for no reason. But TMZ has gotten wind that she has been allegedly attacked at a show in Illinois, when the crowd got out of hand and turned their angst against her. Now, the key words in the TMZ post are “According to Tila”, so until an official statement is made by the police we likely won’t know the whole story but regardless she does seem to have been badly injured somehow.

And if the details and facts are in any way true… that’s just wrong. I don’t consider her the most pleasant “celebrity” but in no way does she deserve to be physically assaulted and battered in this manner. There are contusions and bruises all over her face and body and it’s just frightening to imagine what have happened.

I won’t lie though… a part of me is skeptical that this is some kind of hoax or cry for attention but I’m gonna put that aside, give her the benefit of the doubt and just say that I hope she has a quick recovery and that the people involved are head accountable by law.

According to Tila, she took the stage at the Gathering of the Juggalos in Illinois — a concert featuring such acts as Insane Clown Posse and Kottonmouth Kings.

Tila gave TMZ a very detailed account of what happened, saying: “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 on fire cuz they threw fire crackers on stage, and they even took the sh*t out of the port-0-potty and threw sh*t and piss at me when I was onstage.”

She went on to say: “These people were trying to kill me.  So then after the last blow to my head with the firecracker they threw at me exploded, my bodygaurd and the other security grabbed me and ran as fast as they could to the shitty trailor.  Since their security SUCKS, the 2 thousand people ran after us, trying to kill me.  They almost got me so they finally reach the trailor, blood all over myself, cant stop bleeding, then all of a sudden, all 2 thousand people surround the trailor and busts the windows!!!  Even the guys INSIDE with me were shaking!  Their hands were shaking cuz they were so scared!  So 3 guys inside the trailor had to grab a table and push it over the broken windows and grabbed all the chairs they could find so hold the people from outside back.  It was scary as hell!”

Police confirm they responded to the scene, but couldn’t go into detail, citing HIPAA laws.
