Los Angeles: R&B superstar Rihanna was caught on camera hitting a concert goer with a microphone during her show.

The incident happened at a Birmingham show when one person in the crowd grabbed onto the singer`s outfit too tightly as she walked across the floor near the front row of fans, reported Ace Showbiz.

Rihanna took the matter into her own hand before the security guard could handle the situation. She hit the over-eager fan before turning around and resuming her show as if nothing happened.

The singer performed at Birmingham`s LG Arena as part of her Diamonds world tour. She reportedly showed up more than two hours late after partying with her model pal Cara Delevingne the night before.

She will continue travelling the world until mid-November.

While she was away on tour, a man was arrested for trespassing her Pacific Palisades home Stateside. The intruder was spotted on the roof of her house, but he insisted he didn`t know it was her residence. A Google Map of the area was displayed on his phone when he was apprehended.
