Beyonce 'being sued by two of her fans after claims they got trampled before her concert'

Beyonce is being sued by two of her fans who claim they were trampled before one of her concerts, according to reports.

Ms Raquel Castellanos and Ms Gabriella Davidson have reportedly filed a lawsuit against the star after they were caught in a stampede in Chicago in December last year.

The pair had got to the concert hall early to get close to the stage, but when the doors opened they were knocked to the ground and left with extensive injuries including broken bones and severe bruising.

According to court documents, obtained by CBS’ local affiliate in Chicago, the duo said they bought general admission tickets and arrived a few hours early at the United Centre.

The suit reportedly states: “As the hours passed, the group became larger, more dense and more anxious about how, when and where the gate(s) would be released and where ticket holders and fans were supposed to enter The United Centre – none of which was explained.”

The pair were left unconscious as eager fans rushed past them, and missed the show because they had to be taken to hospital, the site reports.

The “long-time fans of Beyonce” believe the arena, concert promoters and Beyoncé are responsible for the chaos and did nothing to prevent the incident from occurring.

It comes as the star completed her mega tour, even crying on stage at her last concert as she said goodbye to fans.

The women are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages in the six-count suit.
