Beyonce was pulled off stage by a crazed fan at the weekend.

The 32-year-old star - who is on the South American leg of her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour - was performing 2006 hit 'Irreplaceable' at the Estadio do Morumbi stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Sunday night (15.09.13) when a shirtless man pounced on her to get a hug.

The 'Run The World (Girls)' hitmaker's security team intervened within seconds of the incident and helped her resume her spot on stage.

Beyonce was unfazed by the incident and showed her true professionalism by casually brushing off the event and incorporating the line ''It's all right'' into the song.

After asking the man his name she added: ''I love you too.''

This isn't the first time renditions of 'Irreplaceable' have proved eventful during the tour. As Beyonce performed the song in Copenhagen, Denmark, in May, a male fan slapped her on the bottom, prompting her to threaten to have him thrown out. In a later concert in Atlanta, Georgia, the singer blasted another fan who was too busy filming the song on his camera to join in singing with her.

Also during the tour the singer's blonde locks got entangled in the blades of a fan during a gig in Montreal, Canada as she sung 'Halo', although she managed to retain her composure while her stage crew rushed to help her.
