Nelly Furtado's latest concert ended in a riot.
The 'Maneater' singer was playing in Moscow, Russia, on Sunday (13.07.08) when Russian rapper Timati tried to get on stage to perform a planned set with her.
However, venue officials refused to let Timati near the singer, leading to Nelly's security team becoming involved in an altercation.
The incident quickly descended into a brawl reportedly involving up to 20 people.
Nelly carried on singing to try to divert attention from the fight, which eventually ended with some of the crowd getting covered in blood and Timati losing a tooth.
The rapper said: "I know who was behind it. They will be punished."
Timati is a huge celebrity in Russia and owns a club and a record label.
An official at the venue said: "We learned at the last moment he was going to perform with Furtado. I gave the order not to let him get on stage."
