A bloodied Aaron Carter was taken to a hospital after a brawl at an Illinois venue aptly named the Loony Bin.
According to TMZ, Carter was performing onstage when one the opening act, ILL State, was acting disruptively in the audience, taking cellphones from fellow audience members and shooting video during the performance. Cater asked security to have ILL State, who is Hispanic, removed, and reportedly shouted “Bye Felipe!” as he was escorted out — a spin on the sarcastic salutation, “Bye, Felicia.”
ILL state was reportedly not amused and came back to the bar when he attacked Carter and his equipment in a chaotic melee.
Carter was reportedly taken to a nearby hospital, and police are investigating the incident. There have not yet been any reports of an arrest.
