Britney Spears was terrified during a scary incident on Wednesday night (Aug. 9) when a man rushed the stage during one of her Piece of Me residency shows in Las Vegas, TMZ reports.

The pop star was singing her classic hit “(You Drive Me) Crazy” as a man allegedly did a cartwheel before running toward Spears and her dancers.

Spears at first seems unaware of what is going on, yelling to the crowd “are you guys having fun?” But she quickly realizes that something is off as three security guards surround her and she asks “is everything okay? What’s going on?”

After being kicked, a guard ended up tackling the man as backup dancers assisted in holding him down.

According to multiple outlets, including Daily Mail and E! News, Spears’ knees buckled as she clung to a bodyguard and reportedly asked, “He’s got a gun?” before being escorted offstage.

She was, understandably, stunned.

Audience members screamed “We love you, Britney!” as the man was detained and soon ejected from The Axis theater, which seats 4,500 people. Spears then returned to close out her show like a champ. She is set to perform again Friday and Saturday nights.
