Chris Brown gets stuck dangling in the air during concert, rescued by ladder

Chris Brown became stuck midair at his New Jersey concert on Wednesday after a performance stunt went wrong.

The rapper was left hanging from the ceiling at Newark’s Prudential Center after he got caught while gliding over the audience during his “Under the Influence” track.

Per a fan video, he kept performing the 2019 hit while discreetly signaling for the stage crew to help him.

For several minutes, Brown hovered over the arena and continued to bust a move while waiting for assistance.

Eventually, crew members arrived to the stage with a large ladder to help get the R&B singer, 35, down, according to a follow-up clip.

He continued to perform as he unhooked the suspension wires and climbed down to the stage.

Once on the ground, Brown appeared upset as he presumably shouted at a crew member backstage before continuing his performance.

The rapper raised eyebrows when he was seen grabbing the throat of “Love Island” star Natalia Zoppa while serenading her during his March 2023 concert in Manchester, England.

Several fans labeled the move as “aggressive,” claiming the reality star looked “really really distressed.”

Meanwhile, a month before, Brown complained people “still hate” him after he assaulted his ex-girlfriend and pop sensation Rihanna in 2009.
