She’s stronger than yesterday, all right! A crazy (and possibly dangerous…) fan jumped onstage with Britney Spears during her Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood. Just as the singer was finishing her hit “(You Drive Me) Crazy” towards the end of her set, a man — now identified as Jess Webb — rushed onstage toward the star.
TMZ obtained a video of the scary occurrence. In the footage you see the singer asking her fans if they’re having a good time and then somewhat eerily security guards rushed the stage to protect the 35-year-old.
It turns out the man who rushed the stage was already told to leave the concert because of his disorderly behavior. He then proceeded to jump onstage and be tackled because he apparently wasn’t ready to leave the concert. A frightened Brit can be heard saying, “He’s got a gun?” as she latched onto the arms of her security guards. They then proceeded to escort the singer off the stage safely without her getting hurt.
But, like the “Gimme More” singer we all know and love, she got back onstage to finish her concert making sure not to disappoint any of her fans. They were quick to show their support by chanting “We love you Brtiney” at the concert and then later tweeting encouraging words on social media.

Shout out to @britneyspears for jumping back out on stage. Even though a crazed fan tried to ruin it for the rest of us. I love you Britney💞

Thankfully, the man did not have a gun but he was arrested for trespassing after the incident. We hate that the singer had to go through this, but we’re so glad no one was hurt. Stay strong, Brit!
