Tiffany lashes out at fans during trainwreck show: ‘F–k you, guys!’
Tiffany certainly wasn’t alone when she slurred profanities at a group of fans on Saturday.
The ’80s singing sensation — now age 50 — was caught on camera verbally abusing concertgoers at her show in Lake Park, Florida.
The former teen idol was partway through a performance of her biggest hit, 1987’s “I Think We’re Alone Now,” when she lashed out at the crowd for an unknown reason.
“F–k you, guys,” Tiffany mumbled into her microphone as she stood barefoot on stage.
The star then dropped another F-bomb before slurring something inaudible.
“This is my hit!” she subsequently yelled at the fans. “I’m gonna sing it right!”
Tiffany then launched into a chorus of the classic track, which was ear-splitting and off-key.
Video of the concert is going viral online after being obtained by TMZ, with fans alarmed by the performance.
“When this song pops in my head it takes me back to a happy surrounding. Now WTF am I supposed to do?” one asked in the comments for the video on TMZ’s YouTube channel.
“Wait, she had to been doing that on purpose….it was too weird to be real,” another remarked.
However, some viewers felt sympathy for Tiffany. “How many times has she had to sing that damn song… She must absolutely hate it by now to the point of night terrors!” one wrote.
Tiffany’s rep told TMZ that the singer “had lost her voice and got frustrated with her performance.” The website stated that she “struggled to hit several notes during the gig, so it’s possible the fans were heckling.”
Saturday’s concert was the last on her US “Shadows” tour. The singer has performed more than a dozen shows across the country in the past month.
Tiffany didn’t directly address the controversy on her Instagram account but hinted at some mischief in a post shared on Sunday.
“Happy Sunday… hope you’re all behaving,” she wrote beneath a selfie.
Tiffany (born Tiffany Darwish) split from her second husband, British businessman Ben George, in 2018. The pair had been married for 14 years.
Meanwhile, Tiffany shares one adult son, 29-year-old Elijah, from her first marriage to make-up artist Bulmaro Garcia.
Tiffany famously tried to become emancipated from her mom, Janie, after she became a household name back in the late 1980s. The pair later reconciled.
Speaking about divorcing her parents during an episode of Australia’s “I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!” in 2018, Tiffany stated: “My mom was an alcoholic, she didn’t know how to speak for herself. My sisters were taken away, she had to work to get them back. I was being told ‘Your family is going to f–k up your career so you’ve got to make a choice at 14 or 15 otherwise that is what you will be. Do you want that or cut them loose?’”
She continued: “My mom depended on me and my mom wouldn’t let me go, so I had to go to court. Family is family but sometimes they do hurt you; they don’t mean to but they can and sometimes you have to fend for yourself.”
