Avril Lavigne - Avril Lavigne 'Attacked' By Fan During Coldplay Cover

Avril Lavigne, the Canadian pop singer currently performing on her 'Black Star' tour, was attacked by a fan during a recent concert in Brazil. The singer launched into a rendition of Coldplay's ballad 'Fix You' when an individual leapt onto the stage and ran towards her, reports the New York Daily News.
From the hazy video footage, it is not clear whether the suspect was male or female, but they were tackled by security staff before reaching the singer. The incident drew an audible scream from Avril, who attempted to jump from the piano she was perched on in order to escape. After the attacker had been detained, Lavigne made light of the situation, telling the audience, "Just getting in the moment there.Okay, let's try that again". The Canadian will continue her current tour with shows in St Petersburg and Russia in September, before heading to central Europe for concerts in Italy, Holland and France. Her album 'Goodbye Lullaby' became her fourth Top 10 record on the U.S. Billboard 200 and topped the charts in the UK, Japan and Australia.
The singer married Sum 41 lead singer Deryck Whibley in July 2006, but the couple separated after three years and Lavinge filed for divorce in October 2009.
