Miley Cyrus Shocked by Overzealous Fan at Melbourne Gig
Miley Cyrus was left frightened when an overzealous young fan suddenly 'attacked' her during a concert at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia. Right after the 18-year-old songstress was done with her closing number "The Climb" on Friday night, June 24, a fan was caught on tape bum-rushing her from behind.
The unruly fan managed to give the former "Hannah Montana" star a small hug before getting whisked back into the crowd by her security guard. When the fan was tackled by the guard, the "Party in the U.S.A" hitmaker spontaneously exclaimed into her mic, "Oh my God, oh my God." She was then swiftly escorted off stage.
The night before the show, Miley was reportedly joining boyfriend Liam Hemsworth at his house on Philip Island. The on-and-off couple stayed there with Liam's parents, Craig and Leonie, as well as Miley's mother Tish. Herald Sun reported that they all flew to Melbourne with a helicopter so that Miley can kick off her Gypsy Heart show on Friday.
