Jade Thirlwall from girl band Little Mix was left doubting her safety at Wireless festival this weekend.
The singer was being led through the 40,000 crowd to a raised VIP area to watch Nicki Minaj perform when a festival-goer shouted: “I’m going to stab you.”
X Factor winner Jade was enjoying the festival in Hyde Park' London on Saturday with the rest of the Little Mix girls when she was threatened.
A source said: “The only way to get to the VIP platform was through the crowd.
“A steward was leading the way for all the celebrities to get through but it was causing a bit of commotion.
“People were getting agitated because they thought Jade and the guys from JLS and The Saturdays and other celebrities were pushing in, while they’d been waiting to see Nicki Minaj for hours.
“The celebs were brought out just minutes before she took to the stage.
“Nicki was on just before the headliner, Canadian star Drake, so lots of people wanted to get a good position they could stay in until the end. It was very tightly packed.
“Lots of people were making comments at the celebs but this one was horrible. A guy screamed right into her face: ‘I’m going to stab you!’ It was really shocking.”
Jade, 19, who attended the festival with her boyfriend, Diversity dancer Sam Craske was then lifted over the barrier and watched Nicki safely from the platform in the middle of the park.
Jade later admitted that she was frightened by the whole ordeal, but knew she was in good hands.
“It was scary but I had loads of people around me so I knew I’d be safe. I think people were annoyed because they thought I was pushing in.”
Don't take it personally, Jade. He was probably just jealous.
