Adam Levine Flour-Bombed Outside Jimmy Kimmel Live — SEE PHOTOS
Adam Levine was flour-bombed outside of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Wednesday. See shocking photos of Adam Levine attacked with flour here.
The Maroon 5 front man was outside Kimmel’s Los Angeles studio when the incident occurred. Levine was said to be signing autographs for fans when a guy in the crowd allegedly threw a package of flour or powdered sugar at the “Sugar” singer. The mess left Levine largely covered in white powder.
A rep for “Kimmel” tells Gossip Cop, “Immediately after the incident occurred, ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ security followed protocol and alerted LAPD who responded quickly and are looking into the situation.” TMZ says that when police arrived, the alleged assailant was arrested for battery.
The incident comes exactly a month after Levine was rushed on stage during a concert in Anaheim. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, the singer was in the midst of a show with his band when a fan jumped on stage and threw her arms around Levine from behind. The star was, understandably, startled, and even ended up with a cut on his ear. He repeatedly told the unidentified woman to “calm down” and “relax” before a security guard came to whisk her away.
Levine, of course, is not the first celebrity to be doused in flour. The most infamous incident occurred in 2012, when, as Gossip Cop reported, Kim Kardashian was attacked on a red carpet by an anti-fur protester. Coincidentally, on Tuesday, a group of protesters disrupted Kardashian’s book signing in New York City over the same issue, though no flour was thrown this time.
Levine, who was ironically going on “Kimmel” to perform “Sugar” and promote the group’s new album, has not mentioned the incident on social media. Interestingly, he managed to tape the show in the same outfit that was covered in the powder. And while Kimmel asked the musician about the recent concert attack, no mention was made of the flour-bombing, suggesting that it might’ve actually occurred after the taping. A rep for Levine has yet not responded to a request for comment.
