Monica Parker Jumps Off Stage

In order to defend a woman who was being attacked in the audience, singer Monica Parker Jumps off stage and halted her performance in Detroit. The singer of “Boy Is Mine” was seen in a video from Saturday night’s Riverfront Music Festival leaping off the stage to confront the male assailant.

When security officers followed Monica into the crowd, the audience applauded in agreement.

“You don’t hit no f***in’ lady like that,” she warned before the man was ejected from the festival.

“That s*** triggered me,” she said. “I seen him punch that lady in the face, I lost my f****n’ temper. I apologize ya’ll. I apologize from the bottom of my heart.”

Still a bit heated, the ’90s hitmaker admitted, “I was gonna knock his a** out with this f****n’ mic.”

Monica further addressed the fight in a comment on The Shade Room’s Instagram on Sunday.

“I apologized there and I’m apologizing here for my actions but no one would take action!” she wrote. “I was so triggered, I watched and she didn’t appear to even know him!”

“It appeared to be about space during a packed concert!” she continued. “He punched her with all his strength! My intentions were to prevent her from being hit again and she wasn’t! I asked for help, but it fell on deaf ears! It was like seeing my mother or an aunt be assaulted!! This woman was 50+ I pray she’s ok!”

Music Festival spokesperson’s opinion on the incident

In a statement to CBS News, Riverfront Music Festival spokesperson Andrus Macdonald commended Monica for taking action.

“We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Monica for her courage and decisive intervention during an unfortunate incident at our Festival,” he said. “Her actions demonstrated a commitment to the safety and respect of her fans, reinforcing our belief that she is not just an extraordinary talent, but an extraordinary individual as well.”
