The Jonas Brothers just performed their sold-out Happiness Begins tour at Los Angeles this week. Videos are flying around the internet that show Nick Jonas was groped by a fan at the LA concert.
A female fan was caught on video, repeatedly grabbing and rubbing Nick's legs. She even tried to grab his butt from behind.
Nick tried to push her hand away several times and continue the concert. You can also see members of Nick's security team pushing the woman away too. But she keeps trying to grab him.
At one point in the video, you can see that Nick tries to push her hand away. The woman's face in the video is unclear.
Eventually, Nick, who is married to Priyanka Chopra Jonas, turns around to try to confront the woman, and the video ends here.
Nick Jonas recently issued a public statement to thank fans for coming to the shows, which sold out both nights. While he has not issued a statement about the assault, Jonas Brother's supporters and others on the web have quickly jumped to his defense.
One person wrote on Twitter, "This probably ruined his whole night. It's never okay to sexually assault someone, let alone in front of literally thousands of people."
Other fans confirmed that the female fan's behavior is sexual assault.
At this time, we do not know if the female fan was escorted out of the venue because of her behavior.
Other fans issued a public apology on the woman's behalf.
Despite the incident, Nick still completed the show. Yahoo News reports that he also went out to dinner with his Priyanka the same night.
