Gwen Stefani faces lawsuit after fan breaks leg at concert

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Gwen Stefani has been sued by a fan who attended her Charlotte, North Carolina, gig in July last year, claiming the singer's negligence at the concert caused the person serious injury.

In the complaint filed, Lisa Keri Sticklin accused the "No Doubt" singer of causing a "crowd rush" at the gig that resulted in the lady suffering several injuries including a broken tibia, reported Rolling Stone.

According to Sticklin, Stefani encouraged concertgoers sitting in the lawn portion of the PNC Pavilion to rush into the reserved seated half of the amphitheater.

"'Just fill in anywhere you like!' Who cares about your lawn chairs? You can get new ones," Stefani told the crowd, the lawsuit alleged, accusing the singer of negligence.

"After the patron crowd rush and the resulting injury to the Plaintiff, Stefani announced through her microphone and the loud speakers throughout PNC Pavilion that 'I got in so much trouble for telling you guys to come up here,'" the lawsuit continued.
