Princess Nokia threw a drink on a ‘white boy who was disrespecting her’ and hit him at a show last night

He called her ‘Abigail’ while she was performing at last night’s Cambridge University fashion show

The headline act of this year’s Cambridge University Fashion Show, R&B artist Princess Nokia, is reported to have cut her act short after targeting an audience member.

According to The Cambridge Studentthe singer stopped just thirty seconds into her third song of the night to question an audience member as to whether they were being “disrespectful.” It is as yet unknown whether the singer was provoked, but she reportedly threw a drink over the individual and proceeded to hit him three times.

Still angry when she returned to the stage, Princess Nokia allegedly threw a drink over the crowd and said “that’s what you do when a white boy disrespects you.” She then stormed off – cutting the performance short.

Princess Nokia was the CUCFS 2017 headliner

The audience member, speaking to The Cambridge Student, denies having provoked the singer at all: ” “I was standing in the audience and was told by a fellow audience member that the name of the performer was ‘Abigail.'”

“Given that I was enjoying the performance, I shouted out ‘Let’s go Abigail!’ After I shouted this, she came down from the stage. She slapped me and threw drinks on me.”

The fashion show was in aid of the Douglas Bader Foundation, a charity founded to aid people with limb loss physically, psychologically and socially.

It seems to have been a difficult night for CUCFC, with Richard Browne Jr due to guest model, but dropping out at the last minute for personal reasons.

This is not the first time that CUCFS has faced controversy recently. The fashion show was planning to donate the money raised  to I AM ADAPTIVE, which was revealed to be illegal.

CUCFS took place at the Corn Exchange this year.
